Happy Friday! Millie is obsessed with bees. Everything in her little world is now officially a bee from the smallest gnat to a raisin…BEE! Thankfully it hasn’t kept her from eating her raisins, peas or anything else for that matter. Here’s what I fed the twins this week…
Lunch: Tuna musubi with teriyaki dipping sauce. Peas and corn.
Notes: The twins eat musubi at the Farmer’s Market so I thought, why not try to make it at home! Here’s how I made them: I mix canned wild caught albacore tuna with a little mayo. Then grab a small handful of sticky sushi rice, fill it with tuna and roll into a ball. Shape into a triangle and wrap with a piece of dried seaweed. There are musubi molds that will make your life much easier but I just did it by hand! Jackson loved this lunch, Millie was ok with it.
Breakfast: Buckwheat pancakes with syrup for dipping and cinnamon apples.
Notes: The twins are not huge apple eaters but I’m trying to change that with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yum!
Breakfast: Spinach and cheese scrambled eggs. Buttered, rolled tortillas, sliced tomatoes and clementines.
Notes: I like making breakfasts like this for the twins because it’s something I would normally eat myself! The more I can get them used to eating like this the better, right? So far chopped fresh spinach mixed into scrambled eggs with cheese has been a success. Sometimes I do add a squirt of ketchup.
Lunch: Pesto pasta with peas and asparagus. Sliced tomatoes with ranch for dipping.
Notes: This was my first time giving the twins ranch and (obviously) they loved it. Ranch, ketchup and barbecue sauce must just be written into the American DNA. Ha! As for the pasta, pesto is always a hit and mixing in small diced asparagus with the peas and pasta is a great way to pack it full of veggies.
Dinner: Sweet potato quesadillas, black beans and sour cream.
Notes: We ate sweet potato and black bean tacos for dinner so this was the babies version of that! I took the cooked and seasoned sweet potato used in the tacos and smashed it into a puree then spread it inside of a flour tortilla. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, top with another tortilla and melt/crisp in a buttered skillet. Yum!
What did your little ones eat this week? Did you make any meals I should try? Also, here’s a pinnable image of this week’s menu. Happy weekend!
