Well, I did say expect some new things after yesterdays shopping trip!
The prickly pear (i had forgotten what it was when I got to the check out, but my friend said this is what it was, minus prickles!!) was very odd indeed. It had big hard pips, which when removed made it look like swiss cheese. George seemed to think it was okay, but not sure I would get one again - way too much faff for very little fruit. This was accompanied by half a mango and a normal pear.
Lunch involved another unusual ingredient - dried baby figs. George loved these, and ate about 10 with hmm mmm noises! I also gave him some chunks of cheese and a skinned tomato, which he liked much more than usual. I gave in though and gave a banana when he was still hungry and we were short of time!
DH was home early so did supper. George had another new taste of papaya, which dh reported he ate but seemed unenthusiastic about! This was accompanied by some left over mango, and a slice of bread and butter.
All in all an adventerous day - and I also managed to spread the word once more about baby lead weaning, this time at baby massage! woo hoo!
