I’m on my porch as I write this week’s edition of Munchkin Meals, because the evening is absolutely beautiful in WNY, problem is I only have 18% battery left so I’m typing fast. 😛 It’s one of those nights where you wish the evening light would just last and last, it’s one of those nights where if I were back in college I would be out roaming around Elmwood, enjoying the weather and being surrounded by the people. Well, I’m about 10 years old (and wiser…maybe), a wife and mother, so instead I’m on my porch. I’m okay with this, I’m feeling happy and settled today, it’s a good feeling, one I hope lasts!
Okay, back to what Emmett ate…
For breakfast he had some Strawberry Banana Chobani, a mixture of strawberries and blueberries and a locally grown plum. He devoured almost the entire container of yogurt, all of the blueberries and some of the strawberries (I think they were a bit on the tart side).
I am so much better at making sure that Emmett has a well balanced, healthy meal. I always put his needs WAY ahead of mine, I should probably start making our needs equally important.
Anyhow, his lunch was pretty basic but he definitely acted like it was so delicious. A PB&J on a plain bagel and a delicious locally grown peach.
I keep mentioning that much of our fruit is locally grown because I love shopping (and supporting local) and also the taste of the fruit is out of this world. There is rarely a time when I shop at Wegmans (or any other grocery store) that I find the produce looks or tastes as good as something from the farmer’s market.
At day care and on Wednesdays, Emmett usually has a snack. It typically will consist of a couple crackers or biter cookies and a sippy of water. Apparently I wasn’t moving quickly enough for my little cookie monster!
He got through about 4 bites of cookie before I interrupted his fun, I’m a party pooper, but he’s a little cutie.
Dinner was a yummy daddy made cheeseburger, more blueberries and some french fries. Nothing fancy, but Emmett loved it!
We started giving Emmett whole milk this past Monday, we are slowly working to wean him off of breastmilk. So far so good, he still nurses twice and I pump once on weekdays.
Question of the Day:
What yummy foods have you made for you kids this week?
