Baby Food

My Jamie has grown to become an active and strong baby.  Going to be 9 months old in about 2 weeks time. He just cannot sit still, and keep crawling here and there.

He will zoom around the house in his baby walker, and also try to stand by himself all the times.  So feeding him well is a top priority!

Not every day he eats the same kind porridge. Some day add minced meat, sweet potatoes and other day some carrot slices and broccoli with lean meat. Sometimes I cook frog's leg porridge for him too.

The Chinese believes that eating frog legs will make babies develop strong legs.  Don't know it is a myth or what but since I have some frozen frog legs in the freezer, I will make some frog legs porridge for him at home.

Basically my porridge is simple.  Just take the meaty part of the frog's leg, add a clove of garlic and few slices of ginger (both are said to get rid of wind) with vegetables such as broccoli, baby kai lan or carrot and cook with rice in a pot of water for about 40 minutes or so.  I add a pinch of salt to the porridge. I seldom puree my porridge as Jamie does not like to eat soft food. So for this porridge, I will smash the frog's leg so he can take it together with the vegetable bits.


And he loves his food.
