This weekend was a mad one due to this sudden hecticness, coupled with the fact that little jj's puree stock and pounded fried anchovies are depleting. So... while finishing up this financial translation job due for tomorrow, I had to juggle precious time for my precious pwincesh's tummy needs ;P
And since it is already 2.45am right now, I guess I'll just tease you with some yummy pictures of Annabel Karmel's delicious recommendations... a continuation from the previous puree adventure!
It all started with the basic - preparing chicken stock before other yummy meals can be prepared, and fried anchovies (without oil) for that extra natural saltish taste to add to little jj's every meal.
It's main ingredients are potato, peas, broccoli and spinach.
The next few meals have similar colours when they are pureed since they all contain carrots... lots and lotsa carrots.
Yummylicious 2 - Mini Minestrone
What I like best about this recipe is that it reminds me of my best friend, Sue, out there far away with her hubby in Abu Dhabi... whenever we'd meet up at Dome, she would usually order Minestrone Soup... in a way, she was the one who introduced me to this delicious meal. And now, I thought it would be lovely for little jj to have her first taste of it too ;D
the best part is, mommy went a little overboard by using
alphabet pasta hehe... with hopes that little jj will be reading
in no time since she has eaten up all the alphabets ;P
Yummylicious 3 - Chicken with leek, carrot & peas
since little jj loves chicken, i had to make sure i try another
Yummylicious 4 - Braised beef with carrot and potatoes
actually, the recipe includes parsnip and sweet potatoes but
parsnip is a little difficult to find and little jj doesn't quite
like sweet potatoes. so, i've eliminated them from here.
Yummylicious 5 - Fillet with carrot, cheese and tomato
salmon dipped in orange juice with cheese spread on top...
doesn't it look the same as the picture in the book?
mommy, the alphabets in the mini minestrone will be
blended into a puree... how do you expect me to
read the alphabets...
I am still wide awake from that dose of strong coffee but I think I shall head to bed soon. Nighty nite.
