With school starting for a 1st grader, a 6 month old learning to eat, and a goal to cook more than we go out, I’m in the middle of a family food frenzy. My goal is to plan, plan, plan! Sunday I’m setting a dinner menu for the week to help me ward off the husband’s requests to eat out.
Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute and let you know about a few things that I have going on.
First, I’m starting a series over on Baby’s First Year (I’ve been blogging there about Little Bean) called Adventures in Baby Food Making where I photo journal our experience making and trying some simple baby food ideas. Click here to see my first installment, The Microwaved Sweet Potato. If you are interested you can also click here to see all my Baby’s First Year posts. (UPDATE: Click here to see all our adventures!
Second, I added a new feature here on GreenLiteBites called School Lunch Ideas. You may have noticed a new link on the top sidebar. The plan is to snap a few photos of the Little Guy’s lunches and share how I TRY to get him to eat more than chicken nuggets and corn dogs at school. Click here to see the new page.
Lastly, did you know GreenLiteBites is turning 4 this fall. FOUR! I used to joke that this site was my second child. Now I actually have another child AND 4 years worth of food ideas. To celebrate I added an “On this day in GreenLiteBites History” feature which will automatically display a post from the same day (if there are any) of any year at the bottom of each post. How fun is that?!
Ok, I think that’s all the updates I have. I did experiment with a soup idea yesterday. Hope to have it up early this week.
