I'm struggling with good ideas of what to feed my DS. I'm really not a food person - DH does all the cooking and kitchen stuff, but I'm at home with DS just the two of us for two days a week, so need stuff I can do. I got very reliant on jars and am trying to get away from that, but so far I have jacket potato and pesto, pitta and hummus, mashed banana, and that's it!
It doesn't help that DH is terrified of DS choking - he has a bit of a phobia of things like that, so I think would happily see him on purees for the next six months.
It also needs to be stuff that can be made in short bursts, as there's nowhere safe for DS in the kitchen and he cries if I leave the room for more than a few minutes!
DS is a fan of this - it's very easy to make too, doesn't need much supervision.
I sometimes put DS in his buggy in the kitchen, he happily sits and hits various bits of it with a couple of wooden spoons.
Roast some butternut squash and red onion in the oven - I drizzle with olive oil and shove in some rosemary. It needs about 35 mins in the oven at 180 in a fan oven. Cook some macaroni Make a white sauce and then stir in some cheese (I use cheddar, or gruyere normally) Drain the pasta and mix it with the roasted veg and sauce.
This is actually really yummy, DH and I eat it as well as DS. You can either serve it as is, or sprinkle some grated cheese on top and bake it in the oven for 20 mins. It freezes and reheats really well too.
