Hello, friends! Here's a little inspiration for your Monday morning
We were blessed with some gorgeous weather this past weekend and tried to enjoy every minute of it. I am hoping these Spring like temperatures continue and that this isn’t just a tease! I’m pretty sure my son is already obsessed with being outside. When we get close to the front or back door he starts squealing and screaming with excitement. His new favorite spot in the house is standing and holding onto the the lower part of the front door.

One happy guy!
I thought I'd share what’s on the menu for O this week, since we will be having what was actually on our menu from last week, this week. Yea, it was one of those weeks.. I didn’t make it to the store until late in the week and we just ate things we already had which consisted of many of our “go-to” easy meals. (breakfast for dinner, pasta and chicken, quesadillas, etc)
We are still working on finger foods with Owen, I haven’t found a ton of things he is crazy about (minus puffs, yogurt, bites, and cinnamon rolls! ha) but we’re just going to keep introducing things and see how it goes. So, here’s what baby boy will be eating this week…
YoBaby Yogurt (he loves the Blueberry or Banana flavored yogurt) with Whole Wheat Toast and Fruit (fav.’s being watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, and mango)
Whole Wheat Bananas Pancakes with a Plum or Ella’s Kitchen Fruit Pouch
Hard Boiled Egg with Whole Wheat Toast (key for him is to just lightly toast the bread and add a little butter!)
Whole Wheat Elbow Pasta with ground turkey, green peas and tomato sauce
Baked WonTons filled with broccoli cheddar and chicken ( this is a new one, we’ll see how it goes??)
Quinoa Salad (minus jalapeno and chili pepper for him but added for me!) Steamed Carrots with Hummus
Modified versions of our dinners:
Chicken Club Croissants with Sweet Potato Fries
Grilled Salmon with Rice and Veggies
Turkey Kofta Kebabs with cucumber yogurt dip and Veggies ( I plan on making a few of the kebabs without the paprika or chili powder)
Plus whatever leftovers he has from lunch
I tried to incorporate things the whole family can eat and kept a few things I already know he likes like, yogurt, pancakes, hummus, pasta, peas, toast, etc. I also always have a baby food pouch or stage 3 training meal on hand just in case whatever I prepare is a complete miss..which has happened on more occasions than I ‘d like to admit. I’m hoping that some of these new items will become things we can add to our rotation.
If you have any suggestions on finger foods, I’d love to hear them!
Now for Mommy and Me Monday!!!

Look at my tiny, brown haired baby!
And just because I couldn't resist ...

Fingers crossed I can find my camera cord this week! I have a ton of photos to upload!!
Have a great week!!
