I swear he’s looking at his plate thinking, “this isn’t chicken and fries Mum”! 

Continuing in the spirit of exposing him to new foods, I made scratch cheddar tea biscuits, drumsticks in my homemade (secret recipe) shakeNbake, chicken pasta with green peas, his leftover hot dog from Costco (lunch) and a bowl of fresh strawberries. 

What did he try? Nothing. What did he eat? The strawberries and one piece of hot dog. Oh well!! We will try again tomorrow! Amen for leftovers!

Sigh. I should just say that supper is a popcorn picnic.

Five more meals prepped today! Three roast chicken dinners (Greek, Lemon Pepper Garlic, Red Garlic Blend) and two batches of Oriental Chicken Thighs. All we will need to do is defrost overnight, cook in the slowcooker and pair with a vegetable side dish! What’s even better is I can turn each of the chicken carcasses into homemade chicken broth (meat tea) when we’re done!

I’m thinking this is a good trial run for late Dec/Jan when I will fill my deep freeze with meals for when baby arrives.

Card for James…so I asked him, do you know what a pay phone is? (Let’s be honest…they’re rare and he’s only 10) and he says, “YAAAAA they have them in my video game (Mafia) from the 50s!”

Not sure what it is about naps on Tuesdays but it sure makes me appreciate prenatal yoga class in the evening. Btw, he’s still going.
