please give me some ideas so he dont get bored with plain meals



whats is good recipe book



ideas please
Tuna bake is a fav in my house and oh my gosh so so easy!!! I just use the jar sauce in the pasta isle. Cook the pasta, trow in a drained can of tuna and the bake sauce. Mix it up throw it in an oven dish, sprinle with cheese and wake it in teh oven to brown.
I also through in some diced frozen vegies too smile


Mini Pizzas are great aswell! I make up HUGE amounts and freeze them to have only lazy nights..... We make our own pizza dough, super easy! tongue then u can make tiny little ones that are easy for teh kids to pick up. Put whatever you like on there smile

Also mini quishes.... You can also freeze these smile I chop up LOADS of fresh vegies, you can really use any vegies you like!!Here is the recipe!! Its so easy and my kids LOVE them!!!

3 eggs
4 rashers of bacon - diced
1 small onion or 1/2 large - diced (You can use red onion for extra colour instead of a brown onion)
2 Tablespoons of tasty cheese - grated
3 - 4 pre-made frozen puff pastry squares
salt & pepper to taste
Dash of thickened cream - Optional
Sprinkle of fresh or dried Parsley - Optional



Preparation method
1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees C.

2. Lightly grease 2 patty cake pans (12 cup) with cooking spray or butter.

3. In a bowl, mix the eggs, bacon, onion, cheese & salt & pepper with a fork until all mixed together well.

4. Using an egg ring, glass or pastry cutter, cut circles out of the defrosted puff pastry and place into the greased patty cake trays (you can use muffin trays but the patty cake ones fit better).

5. Spoon the mixture into the pastry.

6. Bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
After my two became familiar with food and had been introduced to everything I just started feeding them what we were having for dinner. As long as he is getting a wide variety of vegies and meat I don't think he'll get bored with food. If he's ready you could try finger food

Yeah he prob is to young, sorry didn't see his age until after I replied. Has he got any teeth? For something to munch on you could give him a rusk and she how he goes with that.

Baby led weaners would tell you that he is not too young for finger food. Try putting something on his tray and see what he does, piece of steamed broccoli or something smile





I used to make mash potato and pumpkin, with mince and a spoon of tomato and basil pesto for flavour. Tuna mornay was another favourite. Vegie lasagne, mice stews almost anything i would serve the family within reason DD would eat too!
