Belle brought me a bag of elbow macaroni she'd found in the pantry. I knew she wanted me to open it for her and feed it to her. I was already standing at the stove. I quickly boiled water and made Kea Dinner: macaroni tossed with butter, a jar of an organic fruit and vegetable infant food blend and cubes of sharp cheddar and smoked gouda. Belle loved it!
Earlier I'd made a soup: carrots, celery, chickpeas, two jars of corn puree, dried chilies, garlic, onion, pork sausage, seasonings and spinach. I enjoyed a bowl after trying Belle's mac & cheese. Belle even had a sip. Maybe tomorrow she will try a carrot.
