Foods for Love : Jom Masak!


Since I bought the Baby and Toddler Meal Planner, my job became easier.
Easy when we can just adjusted the menu suitable to Adam and most probably with stuffs yg dah ada..:)
Cooking for toddler is not so difficult,(bila dioarang tak boleh bnyk comment..hehe)..
but,nak kn creative sb bila dah lama2 muak jgak..
For myself, the difficulty is when I hv to creatively mix and match bubur for Adam..
I used to provide Adam with the porridge to nursery..
Tp Alhmadulillah,with ideas from books and frenz..dah macam2 bentuk bubur dah I served for Adam..
I started to fried with garlics,add up some kismis,honey and leafy green such spinach and sawi..

So for today..I will share some few menus from the book..
which I hv tried at home..Jom kita ke dapur!

1st Menu : Fish Plov
********************


Ingredients:
Rice
salmon fillet/white fish fillet
frozen peas
carrots
potatoes

For toddler..veggie tu dah boleh potong kecil2..


Method to cook:
1. Put rice and all the veggie (except for peas..put at second half) inside the big bowl with half water to make a porridge until soft and tender.
2. Meanwhile,place the fish in small pan and pour fresh milk enough to cover the fish.
3. When the fish is cooked through, remove from them milk and carefully flake the fish. Strained the milk and reserve.
4. Combined the fish and some of the reserve milk in the bowl and wait till its fully cooked.

Serve in the serving bowl..and da..siap!!
Simple rite!

2nd Menu : Macaroni Cheese with Brocolli n Carrots
*******************************************


Ingredients:
Macaroni/pasta
Cheese sauce :
full fat milk
English mustard
gratted cheddar cheese

Pasta/macaroni
* I love Heinz shape pasta..hence we can encorouge our kids to eat!

Cook pasta in large boiling water until softened and drained..
* U can choose normal pasta too instead of the shape one!
At the same time steam the brocolli and carrots untill soft and tender..



For the cheese sauce..Instead of the ingredients that I hv mentioned earlier..
This is the short cut one!
White sauce of Heinz..I hv tried and not bad!

So, instead of provide the white sauce, I just add up the grated cheddar cheese in the hot pan with the white sauce.
Pour the sauce in the drained paste and combined with sliced carrots and brocolli..
Tadaa..siap!!

Since I already got ideas of white sauce taste, next I might try my skill to serve it myself..
Still wonder to get zuchinni,herbs sorts of things..help me..!
I need ideas for those who hv tried this!!

3rd Menu : Baby Fruits Salad
***************************


Ingredients:
Papaya
Mango
Strawberry
Yogurt
Orange juice

Easy peasy..
Cut the fruits in cube shape..
Mixed everything in serving bowl  and stir..
da..siap!
Sorry picture tak include..forgot to snap!!

InsyaAllah I will try more menus from the book and share with you..
such bolognese,chicken casserole (nadine's menu pun best!) and many more..
Seriously, I'm not a good chef,thus any ideas u r most welcome..
So that I can improve here and there..
till then..happy trying!

Not a good chef apenye tu, dear. I tgk pun terliur dah haaa. Well done, Mommy Adam! :)

Second menu tu, favourite meal Faaz tau. Br ingat nak share, you dh share dulu...good, good :) Tp I slalu buat the white sauce myself since Faaz belum 18 months. Kalau boleh I nak elakkan pengawet atau any additional flavor.

Fruits n yogurt tu nyum2 kan? I start kat Faaz masa dia 8 months lagi. tp mashed fruits with plain yougurt la. Tak letak orange juice (harus cuba nie :) Slalunye I akan buat lebih sket so that I pun eat together2..heheh!

p.s: thanks for sharing. nak cuba la Fish Plov tu nanti, looks nyummy!

zahira said...

wah...sgt rajin mommy ni. patut lar adam semangat ;-). ziqri bila bagi mkn bubur mcm tak mau...now bagi nestum pon tak mau...tp if bagi farleys letak susu mmg habis. bagi roti gardenia nak pulak dia makan. mmm...nak kena tunggu 1 year lar baru boleh buat bubur mcm ni.

MOMMY NADIA said...

huhu..mula2 terpksa sb nak kena bekalkan Adam..lama2 jadik suka sb asyik duk alter2 makanan utk dia..

nadia start buat bubur pun bila Adam 10bulan,elok k.long start skrang jgak,tkt nanti Ziqri tak biasa makan bubur..
buat yg simple..ikan n sayur then blend..

Thara said...

em food looks fantastic! nak juge nak juge! :D

nadia, bila babies bole start makan mcm gitu? like, small pieces mcm tu. coz aydein kadang2 i kasik slightly big piece (bukan semi liquid), nanti die choke.

MOMMY NADIA said...

Thara,
For Aydein kan,I rs u blend lagi lah..
since dia pun still less than 1 year,after 1 year..br cut in small pieces..
kalau Aydein dah bnyk gg pun apasalahnya bg dia exercise kunyah2..:)

pasta shape too,mmg kecil2..boil lame2 till soft kan..think Aydein dah boleh makan..
cayyok2 Thara..share with us ur menus too..:)
