Because I'm sick of cheese on toast and cereal bars!

coffeecups Wed 17-Jun-09 21:20:59

i wouldn't recommend noodle soup

8oreighty Wed 17-Jun-09 21:22:11

ambrosia custard, straight from the can. yum yum.

Stinkyfeet Wed 17-Jun-09 21:23:20

Pizza. Cake. Choc.

I managed fish and chips from the chippie a few times!

Otherwise, risotto and pasta were perfectly possible - and keeping control of a two-year old at the same time grin

Chocolate biscuits!! blush

thehairybabysmum Wed 17-Jun-09 21:26:08

chocolate, cake, creme eggs, cheese on its own.

Can youtell i put weight on whilst bf grin!

Sausage rolls, as long as you brush the pastry flakes of the baby before the health visitor comes round. grin

DitaVonCheese Wed 17-Jun-09 21:28:25

Pizza! Or a roast.

Pasta leaves tomato stains all down one side of DD's babygros blush

Ah, I was coming on to this thread to say toast...

I get DP to cut mine up and then put the plate on to the opposite side of where DS is feeding.

Ha ha ! I remember having to rely on cereal bars too!!

Big vote for pasta with stir-in sauces - if you have to try and put the meal together yourself aswell...
otherwise you need another person to chop up your food for you so you can just stab it with a fork. hmm <<remembers FIL chopping up Xmas Dinner>>

Oh, and drape a muslin over the baby's babygro! Luckily the time I forgot we were eating carbonara, so no tomato stains (phew).

'I get DP to cut mine up and then put the plate on to the opposite side of where DS is feeding.'

What I meant was that way you can eat almost anything...I didn't mean I get DP to cut up toast for me...blush

Pizza - chop up small.

Bolognese - but avoid spaghetti and keep the sauce fairly dry, use pasta twirls instead.

Oven chips. (yum) Serve with salad and cold meat already chopped up by your dh/dp/friend

Chocolate for pudding.

Smoothies for in the day.

lol i well remember having to flick dd over on her side so that the biscuit crumbs would fall out of her ears.

LargeGlassofRed Wed 17-Jun-09 21:37:57

god don't know how I'm going to manage with twins grin
maybe soup and a long straw smile

LittleMysMum Wed 17-Jun-09 21:40:32

pmsl at some of these! Have already discovered that pasta sauce and white babygros don't mix...

onepieceofcremeegg Wed 17-Jun-09 21:42:43

Drape a muslin gently over the baby's head/clothing, especially if he/she is wearing a clean babygrow.

Toasties are yummy as well. I go through phases of going mad on them.

EachPeachPearMum Wed 17-Jun-09 21:44:49

flapjacks! Also- if you have the 'bitesize' ones, you can just chuck them in your mouth as you dash past the kitchen grin

thehairybabysmum Wed 17-Jun-09 21:45:09

Toasties are lovely but not good to get molten lava innards when you bf.

isittooearlyforgin Wed 17-Jun-09 21:45:43

my dh seemed to revel in making the most ridiculous bf foods! fahitas, spag bol, soup (found lots of crumbs, dribbles down dd's neck!)

onepieceofcremeegg Wed 17-Jun-09 21:47:10

True, hbm. I chopped them up in the kitchen, and then waited til they were between warm and lukewarm.

Guadalupe Wed 17-Jun-09 21:48:51

I second each peach, flapjacks were my saviour!

PortAndLemon Wed 17-Jun-09 21:50:29

Cake. Which may account for a lot...

preggersplayspop Wed 17-Jun-09 21:53:02

Those tubs of chocolate mini bites and flapjacks from M&S. I went through a lot of them, especially good in the wee hours of those early days when its just you and baby awake at 3am and you are a little bit bored.
