1) When defrosting do I microwave until piping hot and leave to cool? My mum seemed to think defrosting a frozen cooked chicken dish was the best thing to do but I think she is talking smack!
2) Is a stock cube labelled LOW salt (not no salt) but with no salt listed on the ingredients usable? The Marigold low salt had salt in the ingredients, but this one doesn't. It takes me like a day to make the Annabel Karmel stock and I could just get going if I used a cube. I know it's easy to make stock, but...
3) She is going nuts for the finger foods bread, apple, bananas. I've basically been steering away from gluten, but is bread okay at 8 months? We started weaning at 6 months.
4) Is all this a bit precious? Can she actually eat KFC by now?
Heh heh, thanks! Those are almost exactly the same answers, so must be right. Annabel Karmel already rules my life! But I've been staying with my mum so that I could get some work done, and she's been giving the baby her own 'invented' baby recipes and the baby isn't having any of it. Then I gave her an AK one today and she went wild and sucked it down like crazy. I think there's something in those recipes that, in the exact combinations, actually makes baby drugs. I think it works even better if you use an official Annabel Karmel pot rather than an ordinary Tommee Tippee pot to serve it from. But, I very much like the idea that she can eat what I eat now.
