Well it has been quite a while since I have posted one of these (September) but now that we are back home and into a routine of cooking every night, I figured I would share some of our recent finds.
My last recap was when Leighton was a newborn and I was having trouble finding time to cook dinner in the evening hours when she was quite needy. Now Leighton is a big (almost) eight month old and is much easier to entertain, but she is providing a different challenge when it comes to choosing recipes- she is also eating them.
Since we started giving Leighton solids at six months we went with the approach of giving her manageable pieces of what we were eating instead of the typical purees (known as Baby Led Weaning or BLW). Because of this, I have to think about our littlest family member when I am meal planning. It’s really not that difficult considering she can pretty much eat anything we are (minus salt and honey) or at least gum it and taste the flavors. So all of the recipes that I am sharing with you today have not only been approved by Travis and I, but also by Leighton. We have made several recipes out of the Baby Led Weaning cookbook that have been winners too.
Naked Turkey Bruschetta Burger via Skinnytaste
As always Skinnytaste never disappoints. This was very yummy and I just gave Leighton the patty and some tomato slices for her portion.
Whole Wheat Banana Muffins via Sweet as Honey
A yummy breakfast or anytime treat!
Easy Baked Miso Chicken Thighs via Peanut ButterFingers
Ok I lied, not every recipe is baby approved- since Miso/Soy Sauce have quite a bit of sodium we did not give this one to Leighton. But we thoroughly enjoyed it and will be adding it to the adult rotation.
Chicken Burgers with Avocado Corn Salsa via Cooktoria
These were definitely a winner. Leighton and I just polished off the leftovers for lunch and neither of us could get enough of the avocado corn salsa.
That’s all for today, have a great weekend!
