Tuna, rocket fishcakes

Glitterbug cooks tuna and rocket fishcakes

What a week! Glad it’s over and we’re in a new one.

So Sidekick has been sick. This was the first time she’s been properly sick, temperature going up and down, trips to out of hours doctors, just not a lot of fun!

Then when we get out of that, I end up with a swollen eye, for no reason. Just all swollen shut.

It’s really hard to keep up with Sidekick when only one eye is working!

Good for you Pepper, Pea Muffins

Glitterbug cooks pepper and pea muffins

Weekends always used to rush by before I had Sidekick now they’re over before they even begin. Well that’s how it feels.

Like every other parent out there I try to do as much as I can in the weekend to get ahead in the coming week.

Washing, cleaning, cooking.

Simple domestic things.

I also try and spend some quality time with Sidekick and Hubby. Otherwise I’d never see him!

Hulk Muffins

Hulk Muffins for the superheros

I think it sounds better than broccoli muffins!

Another weekend gone. I’m sure they never passed this quickly before Sidekick arrived. I can’t believe that in a matter of days she will be 9 months. We are in the last quarter of her first year. I’m not sure how I feel about that!

As any parent knows time is a precious thing so I spend a good chunk of the weekend cooking ready for the week ahead when I’m flying solo.

This weekend was a bit of a challenge in the cooking department as I had new things to consider.

Tuna Quinoa Fritters

Tuna, red pepper and quinoa fritters

Part of my weekend is about cooking.

I like cooking, coming up with recipes, trying new things out. It helps me feel like there is still a little bit of the pre-baby me about!

We decided to do baby led weaning as it seems the most natural thing to do. If you think about primates they don’t mush up their banana’s or whatever it is they eat. They eat what the pack (is it called a pack, what is the collective term for monkeys?) eat.

Also the thought of doing all that pureeing, too much faff!

So it’s been quite good fun thinking of new things to eat that are Sidekick friendly in terms of size, different textures etc.
