I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately. We’ve all been sick in the Good Baby Kitchen household. The cold weather has gotten to us and we all came down with a bad case of the flu. I’m still sick and was ordered by the doctor to stay in bed for the entire week or risk pneumonia and other secondary infections.
Today has been the first day I even had the energy to sit in front of the computer. Albeit from my bed (thank goodness for laptops). I officially never want to see a tissue again.
I went into Molly’s childcare last week (pre-sickness) to help with some of the cooking and the wonderful chef there and I came up with this spiced rice pudding that we served to the kids for afternoon tea.
Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day. I’ve often eaten cereal or scrambled eggs for dinner out of complete choice and utter love of breakfast food.
I’m already thinking about breakfast tomorrow morning and what delicious creation I can devour.
Normally bircher muesli is an overnight thing. Which means preparation. Which, let’s be honest isn’t always completely practical. But take a deep sigh of relief because this bircher is still creamy and delicious and takes just five minutes to make.
I love stewed fruits. This is such a great dessert or snack option and you can serve it to your family/baby in a number of different ways depending on their skill level with food.
I generally do half a batch pureed and the rest as shown in the photo above. It’s great for freezing into cubes and making for an easy microwavable breakfast with some yoghurt for those days when you’re so tired you feel like your eyeballs might fall out.
