Baby Breakfast Ingredients


4 tbsp rolled oats
2 tbsp raisins
6 tbsp milk
1 small eating apple (approx 130g) peeled, cored and chopped)
1 small ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped
1 tbsp Annabel Karmel’s Pear Concentrate



Baby Breakfast Method:


Simply soak the oats overnight to make this delicious breakfast…
It’s a good idea to keep portions of apple and pear puree in the freezer to mix with the muesli.
Soak the oats in milk overnight or for at least a couple of hours. Meanwhile Put the chopped apple and pear in a saucepan together with the pear concentrate cover and cook for 10 minutes over a low heat. Remove from the heat and mash with a fork.
In the morning, stir the cooked apple and pear together with the oats and raisins.

Nicci's favourite:

1tbsp Olive Oil
1/4 onion, chopped
200g shin of beef
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
Dried peaches or apricots (2 or 3)
500ml stock (beef will work, vegtable stock works too)

Fry the onion in the oil. Sear the meat on both sides. Add the carrots and stock and simmer until the meat is tender. Puree and freeze in ice trays. I add a starch or some butternut, and we're good to go!

Another plan: I cook single veggies (steamed and mashed) like Hubbard squash, carrots, beans and potato and freeze them in icetrays. Then I can combine them into meals for N, for instance chicken with beans and potato or beef with carrots and squash.

Hi! Chicken thighs, mince or shin of beef, with a little onion/tomato puree/stock for flavour.

I cook it a long time on low heat until tender, then I puree it with my handheld blender.

Method

2) Chop the onions finely and chop potato and slice the mushrooms.
3) Dry-fry the beef in a saucepan for 5 minutes till completely browned.

Yum yum custard

(Part experiment, part High School home economics)

375 milk (I use Parmalat First Growth milk. You can probably use formula, though I can't guarantee that you'll get the stench out of your kitchen...)
3 egg yolks
40ml Maizena
pinch of real vanilla seeds/ 5ml real vanilla extract (no essence!!)
heaped tablespoon sugar

Heat 300ml of the milk and the vanilla in a saucepan to boiling point (do not boil). Mix the Maizena and sugar with the leftover milk. Beat the egg yolks. When the milk is at boiling point, mix it with the sugar and flour mixture in a mixing bowl. let it cool a bit. Mix spoonfuls of the milk mixture into the beaten egg yolks until the eggs and milk are roughly the same temperature. At that point, mix the eggs and milk together. Put it back onto the stove on low heat and stir until thickened.

This is great with fruit as a dessert. Plus (I haven't tried it but I will!), this should make a great ice-cream. Just pour into a freezer-proof container, and stir regularly to break up any ice-crystals.

Oh, and mommies with lactose intolerant-kiddo's: Soy milk should be fine.

It is divine! You can have some yourself, if you can stomach the First Growth milk (I can't, hate milk... )

MARTHIE'S YUM RECIPE

He has the same for lunch and dinner and sometimes I vary, but mostly the same so I make 14 portions.

He absolutely LOVED it!

this is what I did:

Fried onion
Add Beef Strips (Like for sir fry)
Add Butternut blocks
Add Carrot Blocks
Add Frozen peas/corn/carrot mix
Put 3 x tomatoes in hot water with a X on each side. Peel and take out the pips (Makes it bitter) cut into quarters and add.
Add stock (any)
I then added the Green Fettucini (Just crunched up into pieces)
Boil Slowly for a hour or so.

Mash to whatever consistancy you want!

Tried this reciep and K loved it!
by Eileen Today at 9:48


I have not made much fresh fruit for K as it seems a mission and most you can't freeze but I tried this yest and she loved it, it's also suitable for freezing. I have been battling to find lose pears and as DH 7 I don't really eat them seemed a waste to but a packet so I just added purity pear at the end. seems strange to use the dried apricot but K finished it all up this morning. So mommies give it a shot! I used a drop of vanilla essence in it and water not juice.

I warmed it up for her and added a little extra water.

Ingredients


1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
60g dried apricots, roughly chopped
4 tbsp water
1 ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped
1 vanilla pod (optional)

Method:


Place the apple and dried apricots in a saucepan with the water. If you like you could split open a vanilla pod scrape out the seeds and add these to the fruit. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the pear and continue to simmer for 2 minutes. Puree the fruit until smooth.

last night i gave becca a cube of chicken, some cous cous and brocolli and cauliflour and cheese sauce.

the chicken was just normal chicken puree.

for the cauliflour and brocolli cheese sauce, i steamed the veggies.

to make the cheese sauce, i use a bit of unsalted butter and some corn starch and added formula, all just by guessing ladies sorry and then added like a table spoon of grated cheese... it made plenty so i freezed it in cubes.

but she loved it!

also i took half a gem squash, put some cous cous in and a cube of monz's shepards pie mince in... also loved it, another meal i put chicken in. she loved it and was fascinated by the "bowl" (gem squash half)

Hi,
Avo can be a very useful veggie which you can mix with many things
I have done:

Tomavo (Tomato and Avo mixed)
Avo and cottage cheese (smooth)
Avo and tuna with little cottage cheese and couscous
Avo and potato
Avo on bread,rice cookie
Avo and chicken


During summer when mango season comes - it is super delicious to mix
Mango and Banana
Mango and Apple
Mango and Pear
You can freeze all of the above

I also do throughout the year
Pear and Banana
Apple and Banana


veggies:
Potato and Beans
Potato and carrots
Butternut and sweet potato mix
Although once the kids are over 1 year they want to start eating the fruits in its real form.... like an apple or pear or banana or nartjie.
