he likes cheese!

June 20th, 2013


I like to take Evan grocery shopping when I can. He loves looking at all the colorful fruits and vegetables. When he sees something particularly exciting, like an olive oil dispenser in action, he cranes his neck forward and his mouth makes a little “o” shape as he stares at the interesting thing, brows raised in wonder. He takes in a small gasping breath and says “ohhhhhhhhhhh!” as he kicks his legs back and forth in utter excitement. Insatiable curiosity in its purest form.

He was in his stroller near the cheese counter one afternoon when I took a taste of some brie with one of those tiny wooden tasting paddles. Evan looked up, fascinated, his mouth a perfect circle. “Cheese!” I said. “Would you like to try some?”

I scooped a tiny quantity of brie with a fresh wooden paddle, said “Nom!”, and swiped a bit of cheese in Evan’s mouth. He slowly gummed at it, wrinkled his nose, and frowned, still gumming. He cocked his head to the side, as he does when he examines something new. Then his face brightened as he began to swallow. He looked up at me and made a small “o” face. More!

It was my turn to gasp excitedly. My baby likes brie!

I bought a small wedge for us both to share. I couldn’t help it—I had to see if he would eat more at home. I grabbed a small container of crème fraîche from the refrigerator case to mix it with.

As it turns out, “cheese”—or rather pureed brie and crème fraîche—is one of Evan’s favorite foods. Who knew?

This is the fourth post in a series on making your own baby food. See the previous posts here:on making baby food, what am I, chopped liver?, watermelon feta salad or soup.

Puree the brie and crème fraîche in a coffee grinder and store in a 4oz/125ml canning jar.

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience
    so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
