Pizza! Again! (29th April)

I successfully made my own pizzas from scratch. This pizza had a tiny bit of puree, then thinslices of beef tomatoes, thin slices of carrot (I grated slices off it) and a bit of mature cheddar, paprika and basil sprinkled on top.
I think that face says I can make it again.
It was beautiful and I'm proud of myself for sneaking some carrot in there.

Still struggling with breakfast (28th April)

So someone on Mumsnet suggested pancakes for breakfast, so I made some up with a wee bit of ginger and cinnamon in the batter. I decided scotch pancakes would be easier to hold. I also fried some blueberries in pineapple juice to have with them.
He did like them, but lost interest quickly. To be honest, I think he's just too tired to be larking about with food. He usually naps just after breakfast and when he's tired he doesn't like to do much.
Here he is resolutely not eating his pancakes.
I ate them instead. Waste not want not.

Banana is back in fashion (25th April)

He finds it easier to grab now, so doesn't shun it anymore.
He will shove the whole damned thing in his mouth if he could.

Lamb Bolognese (24th April)

Another homemade treat. I thought it was bloody tasty. I actually put some effort into this and it paid off. I gave it to him with fusilli instead of spaghetti because I think he would just get frustrated with spaghetti.

This smile reflects what he thought of it.
Oh yes, it was tasty.

Greek Salad (20th April)

Aside from the fact that he clearly thinks fruit and veg are more hassle than they are worth, Theo has inherited my taste in food.
Even with this in mind, I thought he would shun the salad because it has vegetables - and is therefore a waste of time - but it went down well. I think this is possibly because it has cheese in it. He did leave the peppers though (he's never liked them) and he tried an olive, but pulled a face and left them well alone after that.

Food is fun! (19th April)

I can't even remember what this was, but I decided I would let him have the bowl for a laugh.

Metro fish restaurant

I went out for the day with my parents (to a garden centre, as me and Mike want to grow many herbs and vegetables) and on the way back we stopped off at at fish and chip cafe type place. It's a posh chippy. I had fishcakes, which Theo loved and my mum had a fish medley type thing, so Theo got some prawns and smoked salmon, which also went down well.
He also liked the cheque tray.
