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.

1 part brie (I used pasteurized)
1 part crème fraîche or sour cream

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

Eat. Watch your little one eat. Gasp. Oh!

    En el caso de los electrodomésticos antiguos, el nivel de peligro de avería es mucho mayor, además de disponer de una larga lista de problemas que con el paso del tiempo se van haciendo más evidentes y continuados, recomendando la revisión periódica de su frigorífico. Aunque los nuevos frigoríficos puedan sufrir con el tiempo pequeñas averías, al disponer de garantía y tener una durabilidad mucho más alta debido a sus materiales de construcción son mucho menos comunes y mucho más fáciles de reparar que las averías en los frigoríficos más antiguos. Asegúrese de que la puerta no se ha dejado abierta si la señal de advertencia suena en los frigorificos Bosch con problemas.

    Trying to be healthy makes salads so boring. You don t get to use any of that creamy stuff, so you re stuck with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Or are you? Open up your wallet, cheapskate, and buy some walnut oil. It s got a delicate, nutty flavor that gives an extra

    I say this because if you have a box of the mac and cheese sitting in your cabinet and your kid knows it s there, you could feed them pizza topped with M M s and jelly beans every night of the week and they would still turn up their nose and ask for the box. If they know it s there, a possibility that they might be able to have a potential substitute for whatever you have on the plate, they ll opt for the box stuff. And unless you are strong imbued with demon fighting super-powers you ll probably cave.
