Karina is now eating mostly what we eat. No more double duty! Sometimes the timing just doesn't work however (mostly when I can't get dinner ready early enough). The other night we were getting ready to go to a friend's house for dinner (not until 7pm), so I was trying to figure out what to give Karina for dinner. We hadn't gone grocery shopping and the fridge was pretty bare. I was wracking my brain, then thought, "what do I usually do when Tim and I don't have many options = quesadillas! So I found a can of black beans in the pantry, put some shredded cheese, diced up a little tomato and a little cilantro on a flour tortilla and put it in the microwave for 30 secs. I cut it up into bite size pieces and Karina loved it! Later at our friend's house she tried some pulled pork and sweet potato. Also a big hit!
It has been a busy couple of weeks, so I've been trying out some different jarred food. I tried to give Karina soup. Here is the result:
I don't know how soon we'll try that again...Good thing it was bath night :)
Karina also enjoyed a great steak dinner one night (thanks to Ouma and Oupa for bringing us some steaks from Nebraska). We grilled some steak (med rare) and then cut the end pieces that were cooked through for Karina. She also ate tomatoes and some baked sweet potato with rosemary.
