Welcome to another edition of Munchkin Meals!

This week, we are (selfishly) focusing on lunch. Selfishly because I need some more lunch ideas for Hailey (10 months old). Often times lunch is frozen organic peas, diced tomatoes, grilled cheese or bits of whatever I’m eating. Sometimes I’ll remember to prep for the week and she’ll have something more exciting.

Munchkin Meals- Lunch- blw- roasted vegetables and black beans

This week Hailey is eating roasted vegetables (with black beans). Roasted veggies are not only delicious, but you can use an assortment of vegetables, plus they are easy to make and store in the fridge.

Wash, peel and chop. Remember that the vegetables will shrink considerably during roasting, so don’t chop too tiny. You can always cut them again after roasting if needed.

Melt the coconut oil by microwaving it for 8 seconds or by heating on stove.

    Looks great! Forgive me for going a little off topic here while we’re talking baby food:

    I think I might be developing a (minor) mental problem cutting up food for our 8 month old. I do it. Then I look. Then I imagine him choking. So I cut all those pieces in half. Then I look.

    Then I imagine him choking because he eats by slamming his fist on the high chair in a flash of fury, grabbing about five pieces, and shoving them in his mouth as quickly as possible like they’re banana flavored Heroin puffs and he’s needing a fix.

    So I cut them all in half again. And again.

    Pretty soon it’s a mathematical exercise in exploring the meaning of infinity. Until they’re all just mush. And it defeats the purpose of giving him solid food.

    So there you go.
