BLW Sept: Days 20, 21 & 22

Day 20
Breakfast: Fruit bread.
[See Day 16]

Lunch: Oat cakes with mushroom pate.
[See Day 17]

Dinner: Beetroot and courgette risotto.
This was just to use up some of the last of the beetroot from our garden, and is a fairly basic risotto recipe using garlic, onions, beetroot, courgette and some carrot. To make it less salty, I used a 'baby vegetable stock cube and creme fraiche instead of cheese. Baby ate hers with a spoon, but we did keep finding little pieces of rice around the place for days afterwards ...

Day 21
Breakfast: Muffin with homemade marmalade.
A very tasty breakfast: what it says on the tin, really.

Lunch: Apple and yoghurt.
One of the baby's favourites and eaten with relish, as usual.

Dinner: Pizza with tomatoes, tuna, cheese and mushrooms.
I'd normally make pizza dough in the breadmaker, but I recently treated myself to the new River Cottage Every Day: Veg cookbook, and thought I'd try out Hugh's recipe for handmade dough instead. It was very, very tasty - particularly if you like a thin-crust pizza. Now all I need is a pizza stone...

Day 22
Breakfast: Muffins with homemade strawberry jam.

Snack: Breadsticks and organix biscuits.
We've just changed to three milk feeds a day, so we're filling the morning and afternoon gaps with a small snack. This was a carb-heavy snack after we'd had a swimming lesson.

Lunch: Cheese and basil pancakes.
Easy to make, with some of the fresh basil from the kitchen and grated cheddar. Baby loves these!

Snack: Grapes.
Halved and deseeded - these were a massive hit!

Dinner: Roasted vegetables.
Roasted carrots, courgette and potatoes, tossed in olive oil with some fresh rosemary.
