Pear, Pea & Broccoli Cheese

I have made this little meal combo for Jenson a few times now and he really enjoys it. So I thought I would share it for any of you who are after inspiration for a meal for your baby.

You will need:
1 ripe pear (I used a conference)
4 small broccoli florets
1 handful of frozen peas
1 handful of grated cheese
1 tbsp cream cheese
100ml full fat milk

Steam the broccoli and peas until soft and place in a bowl
Peal and chop the pear and add to the steamed veg
In a smaller bowl tip in all of the dairy products and place in microwave for about 2 minutes til the cheese has melted and sauce is thicker
Tip in to the pear and veg and blend until smooth/textured depending on your baby’s weaning/eating stage

Give to hungry baby – nom nom

Makes about 3-4 portions (again depending on your baby’s appetite)

Dear So and So – the cranky version

Dear Boiler
Why do you have to break down now we need you working? We have only had about 3 days of heating in the last three weeks and we have had to have a plumber out three times already! Last night you packed in again and we have had to have yet another part ordered. I am just grateful to be at my mums for the weekend where there is heating in abundance and I can walk around without lots of layers and sleep in minimal bed wear rather than looking like I am off to the Antarctic!!
So please stop getting air pockets in your pipes and sort yourself out before the weather gets even colder!
(with warm fingers and toes for first time in a while (without the need for socks and gloves)

Dear Burton,
Please when I ask you to do something can you please just do it and not get in a paddy and throw a little strop. Or can you please hurry up and not take forever because I get impatient warming for you to wash your hands whilst you mess about, or put your socks and shoes on about 6 times before we go anywhere. Also you keep telling me you “don’t like” your food, even meals you usually do like. Enough already just keep quiet and eat it, you are two not 22!!!
Thank you
(your not so patient) mummy xx
Ps. You will be having an early night tonight as you are very tired!

Dear Jenson,
Please can you stop using my nipples as soothers – don’t get me wrong I love having our snuzzles and you am happy that you are still taking your nightime feeds from me, but sucking for at least an hour each night is getting a little tiresome. Plus you shouldn’t be waking up in the night as much now surely? Afterall you eat plenty during the day and have a feed before you go to bed so come on please sleep through.
(your tired and blood shot eyed) Mummy xx

Dear Christmas,
You know I love you and everything about you and your festiveness but you are creeping up on me far too quickly!! I am just not in the thinking about presents kind of mood yet, probably because I am a bit tired and thinking about what post I can write about each day until 1st December!! Oh and annoyed that my underfloor heating is knackered!!
See you very soon Christmas.
Temporarily bah humbug
