Increasingly I am able to feed him what we have, sometimes with the odd modification. If he's got his parents' palate he is probably ready for the spice, but I haven't been brave enough to chance it!

But Finley needs his variety, it can't be Mommy's special yoghurt all the time. So I decided it was time to put our baby book to the cookbook challenge.
Cookbook Challenge #21: Cheesy Broccoli Casserole from The Baby & Toddler Cookbook
Cookbook Challenge #22: Steamed Fresh Vegetables & Tofu with Soba Noodles and Miso-Almond Sauce, from Still Life with Menu Cookbook
The recipe is a mouthful (har-har, what a punster!), but the preparation is super easy. This cookbook is by Mollie Katzen of Moosewood fame. It is a vegetarian book with a great variety of recipes from around the world. I like books like this that put recipes together into menus. That way if I ever get a chance to entertain, I have a good sense of dishes that will go nicely together.
Throw your veggies on the noodles, toss with your sauce & some chopped nuts & you have a healthy, hardy dinner. And bonus - it's Finley friendly too!
