I took Marion out on an errand and wasn't planning on staying out til lunch time. But we did. I nursed her hoping that that would tide her over til yaya and I finished our lunch. No such luck. She wanted to eat her lunch already which we didn't bring with us. So, I shared my Chef D'Angelo pesto pasta with her. This was the first time she ate something I didn't produce or cook. (Oh, aside from her formula which she's down to 5oz. a day, hooray!)
I kept trying to recall what went into a pesto pasta. Nuts, Pine nuts? I wasn't planning on giving her nuts yet. Olive oil, garlic and basil? Those should be okay. I think. She's not had anything oily though. And for flavoring, she's only had cinnamon and mint leaves. She's not even had garlic. Cheese? Hmm, that's okay. Salt? No salt for her either. I hope she doesn't start liking salt too much. She enjoyed the pesto pasta and I couldn't feed it to her (I had to cut up the pasta) fast enough. It doesn't look like she had any allergic reactions to it.
For Marion, I don't like keeping her fruit/food in the fridge for more than a few days. So I usually eat it myself after the "expiry date". Or, if it doesn't taste too good I'll eat it myself. Never mind if my food combination is unusual like my breakfast here: rice, vienna sausage and Marion's avocado.
This avocado was getting too ripe so I helped Marion finish it up. I don't mind avocado really. Avocado with a few drops of sesame oil is yummy.
At Skye's 4th birthday party, Marion wasn't content with just breastmilk and the snack we brought for her. We were at Alabang Country Club and I ordered the bihon. I don't want to imagine what kind of oil they used, or MSG or whatever. I fed her a little.
Omg. My paunch! :(
And, I shared my glass of water with her and still drank from it despite her backwash (noodle bits in the water!).
I am on my way to becoming a fully operational food disposal.
Good news: I'll be sharing food with my daughter. (Less food for me.)
Reality check: I will still be eating my usual portions + hers. (So that paunch is here to stay.)
[For our outings, I will already bring her meals and water along especially when we're out around her meal times. Marion enjoys her meals and at her age milk isn't enough for her anymore. I think maybe she's enjoying the social aspect of dining as well. Haha.]
