I had absolutely no sense of taste for two weeks thanks to the horrible cold this little man shared with me. I adore my grandson, Isaac, but he could have kept this nasty virus for himself. If he felt as bad as I did, I don’t know how he managed. It was very strange to have no idea what you are eating, except for the texture.
Since I haven’t been cooking or enjoying food for a while, I’ll give you an update on what our budding little foodie, Isaac, is up to. He is really loving his fruits and vegetables (except green beans). We went to SoCal over the weekend again so I could spend my last weekend before starting treatment playing with him. We played and played and played. I loved feeding him lunch and dinner every day. He thoroughly enjoys food. Saturday night his menu consisted of:
First course – baby spinach salad (pureed spinach, pears and apples) – kudos to him for eating this mushy green mess. I’ve been trying to drink some pureed greens to increase my green vegetable intake and it isn’t easy!
Main course – applesauce
Dessert – minced mango
At eight months, he still gets most of his nutrition from mom and a little formula, but he is going to town with the food. He also loves sweet potatoes and butternut squash, neither of which his parents eat. I’m proud of them for preparing organic fresh fruits and vegetables that they don’t even like. I did warn them they’ll need a good answer when he wants butternut squash soup for lunch and asks why they aren’t having it too.
