We try to cook fresh for A. everyday, and we succeed in that most of the time. With the help of some great baby cooking books – my favorite being Jenny Carenco’s Baby Gourmet – especially during the first months where you wonder by everything “can she eat this?”.
For traveling, visits to family, or just crazy night we rely on organic baby food – my favorite brand being HIPP. Don’t be surprised if she eats it much faster than your with love prepared meal.
Or, I make a quick pasta. Here’s a lazy mom recipe with items we usually always have in our cupboard.
Lazy Mom Pasta:
- canned tuna (good quality)
- canned chopped tomatoes (good quality)
- frozen peas
- cinnamon (small dash)
- Parmesan cheese
In a pan heat some olive oil – add the onions chopped – fry for a couple of minutes, add garlic chopped, cinnamon, tomatoes (press the tomatoes with a fork so the juice gets out), peas and tuna. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Cook the pasta according to the instructions. A. loves parmesan, so serve with it!
