I think we are teething big time

Sunday 24th September

Breakfast seemed to go okay this morning, as he ate 4 slices of fruit toast.

Lunch was another oddity, made up of sliced peaches...followed by chunks of cheese (finally!!!) and bread sticks.

Supper was another matter though. I made gnocchi with another frozen batch of HBPS - which was greated with hysteria. Every piece he put in his mouth he would cry and wince. It was awful. In the end, sitting on the kitchen counter, he ate 2 prunes, and 5 individual rice crispie shapes in milk - fed to me by him from a spoon. Whilst sobbing and tear stained.

It was awful. If it is teeth I hope they come quickly.

My Hannah is going through the same. Poor baby.

Maybe he needs some filling but soft food. The following is a hit with my daughter:

Kisuri (mix of rice and lentils)

half a cup of red lentils
half a cup of rice (such as long grain or basamati)
half an onion (chopped)
1/4 spoon of dried termeric
1 bay leaf (leave it out of you don't have any at home
a small pinch of salt (to help the lentils cook)

put it all in a saucepan
wash rice and lentils
add a little water (about 3cm above the rice/lentils).
cook on high until it bubbles
then cover and simmer and let rice/lentils cook and soften (add a little bit of water if req to prevent pan from drying out as the rice/lentil is cooking.)
mash with a fork or a potatoe masher (add more water afterwards if req to taste)
NOTE: before doing above, check lentils/rice is cooked - it's cooked if it dissloves when you rub it between 2 fingers.
then fry some thinly sliced onions (1/2 an onion) with butter or oil or ghee until it's goolden brown.
then just pour into the ricelentils pan.
then enjoy.
