In teeth news ...
BLT has at least 2 partial 2-year molars now! I see his right bottom one is partially in and so is the left top. I don't see anything on the right top, and I still haven't gotten a look in at the left bottom. I'm glad the teeth do not seem to be bothering him that much this time around.
For those with an interest in toddler food...
I finally got around to making eggplant cutlets for BLT last night. He loves the TJ ones, but they are very fatty, so I wanted to make my own version. I dipped eggplant slices in beaten egg and then in Italian seasoned bread crumbs and baked at 400F, 20min on each side. I then froze them. Tonight, I thawed out two slices and then sauteed them in some olive oil. Dipped in pizza sauce, they were very tasty!
BLT is still enjoying carrot or zuchinni muffins every day. Here's the recipe I use, basically the Joy of Cooking recipe halved:
Grate 3 med carrots. Beat 1 egg and 3/8c sugar in a bowl. Add in the carrot and set aside for 10min.
Meanwhile, mix 3/4c flour, 1/2t baking powder, 1/2t baking soda, 1/2t cinnamon, 1/4tsalt, 1/4t nutmeg in another bowl.
Preheat oven to 400C and spray some oil on 12 cups in a mini-muffin pan.
Melt 2-1/2T butter and chop 1/4c walnuts and 1/4 raisins.
Mix the butter, walnuts and raisin with the carrot/egg/sugar mixture and then mix in the flour mixture.
Distribute amoung the 12 mini-muffin cups. Overflowing is fine.
Bake for 15 min.
I used whole wheat flour in the last batch and it was good. The time befofe last, I forgot to add the butter (left it melted in the microwave) and it was still fine.
