Baby’s Deconstructed Chicken Noodle Soup and the Double Spoon Technique

What on earth is the Double Spoon Technique? I think I just made that up.

Phew, little one is back to enjoying food after a little food strike when she was not feeling fabulous after her first year vaccinations.

Deconstructed Chicken Noodle Soup

This is one of her favourite meals and it is so easy to make. Win win! Let’s call it deconstructed Chicken Noodle Soup. Boil a piece of chicken for an hour, add spaghetti and brocolli before serving. Voila! Served on the very handy OXO Tot Plate.

Compartment plates are the best. A plate is a plate but I love the curved rims of this one. Less mess, I promise.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Here you go, bubba. Wow, there is soup! “Come on baby, don’t tip it over”

I must have a feel.

Baby Led Weaning Ideas

Here we go, the ‘double spoon’ technique. While she feeds herself, I feed her too with another spoon. Haha! Lots of supervised baby led weaning for now.

Discovering cutlery

 

 

Open Wide

She feeds herself relatively well, thankfully. Her attempts with cutlery is adorable but not always successful.

Loves her green vegetables for now (long may it last).

Broccoli

Check me out mum 🙂

Self feeding

Finishing her little meal with half a nectarine. Mmmm!

Nectarine time

On a side note, I feel like purchasing the OXO Tot 4-Piece Feeding Set as its on offer currently. Oh, temptations 😛

 

Chicken & Chinese Mushroom for Baby and Me

image

1 onion
An inch of ginger
4 cloves of garlic

5 pieces of skinless chicken, diced (any meat really)
6 Chinese mushrooms soaked in warm water for 30 minutes and then sliced ( available in Asian supermarkets )
1 potato
Half a broccoli

Salt & black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons soya sauce

Sautéed onion, ginger and garlic till  your kitchen smells heavenly. Add in chicken and potatoes as they take longer to cook.

Throw in everything else! I added freshly ground black pepper at this point and lots of water because little one was trying to climb somewhere. These one pot recipes are the best as I can tend to her when this is on the cooker.

Voila! Look at her eyeing my meal instead of hers, at least she didn’t chuck my plate onto the floor. 😂

Baby led weaning : success. She has never had Chinese mushrooms ever so she was rather intrigued and gave that a few nibbles to start. She ate most of the chicken.
