Meal Plan – 9

Hey ho!  Meal plans are back!  In light of the no-dishwasher-situation and a general cooking slump, I went a couple of months without doing much cooking.  Lots of meals that were popped into the oven to heat up kept us going during that time.  I think it was partly that end of winter/early spring malaise as I waited for sunnier skies and warmer weather.  Well, it has arrived and I feel a sense of rejuvenation.  We also have the opportunity for more meals al fresco, and no one wants glop from a plastic container when sitting in the sun sipping a refreshing mocktail or glass of wine.

Freddy is mostly feeding himself now.  He usually has his protein at lunch – meatballs, chicken, tofu, eggs, fish – and a vegetarian meal at dinner (not a hard and fast rule).  His favourite foods right now are salmon, blueberries, oranges, broccoli, peas, sandwiches, and green beans.  It’s surreal to think we are nearly beyond the puree stage.  We have a few packets of Ella’s Kitchen left in the cupboard that I will be happy to see gone!
