Roast ↪️ Veggie Goujons ***
Leftover steamed vegetables (cabbage, petit pois, carrot, swede, celery, leek, broccoli) roast veg (parsnip, butternut squash, potato) Half a Yorkshire pudding... essentially WHATEVER (!)
➡️Mini chopper-fy all bub's leftovers
➡️Add a little flour (will depend on how much veg you have left, you want it so that it's sticking together enough) so you can roll into Goujon shaped strips
➡️ Classic breadcrumb coating, first flour, then dip into whisked egg, finally coat in breadcrumbs.
➡️I cooked these in a little oil on the hob, ideally once golden they'd go into the oven to finish off but bub was too hungry to wait for that kind of thing...as you can see 👊 📷... they were fine. And he finally ATE all of them (read on for current struggle on that front)...
Haven't posted for a while, partly because of returning to work, partly because Xander hasn't been well a while ago but still not 100% totally affecting eating habits and routine. Last night, despite husband being away, thought a quick/no hassle roast might do the trick but he just cried through. It's tough isn't it, I want him to have a good dinner to give us a chance of a night's sleep, then you feel guilty for that as really it's just what he fancies, like when I'm poorly (tomato soup or mash please!!) But now I'm worried that he's off his veggies because he's been having so much plain stuff and don't get me started about how I feel about breastfeeding, having completely wound down to all he wanted last week. This weaning lark, some times you feel like you're both nailing it, then at other times those classic mum doubts kick in. Like everything else in motherhood, it's a journey, it's not always perfect but it's worth it for your full, happy baby. -------
Let me know if any of you have gone through something similar x
🐟🍟 looking more than content with my 100% gluten free cod goujons and chips last week 😋 (with some mushy peas of course - what does everybody else think of them? It's a controversial issue with some people). This is my favourite place to eat near my nana's in Worthing for many reasons:
1) I can only find gluten free fish and chips on Tuesdays locally unless I venture nearer to Central
2) they understand cross-contamintion so I'm always feeling well looked after
3) it's basically on the sea front
4) it's ABSOLUTELY delicious 💕
