We get our bread delivered Thursday mornings and it turns out that I stuffed up the delivery break I set for next week (we're going down to the coast for a week) and accidentally set it for today instead, so we had no bread for breakfast and no cereal, I was going to buy more this afternoon.
So we had pancakes for breakfast. I made two little ones for Audrey and she loved them, she had some apple cut into sticks to go with it.
For lunch today (when we are out at the shops, buying bread, haha) I'm taking one of the freezer meals I made for her, sweet potato and capsicum.
Dinner, DH is having a tooth pulled today and has requested chicken soup, so she can have some chicken soup too. Fingers crossed we don't make the biggest mess in the world with it though. We haven't attempted anything as runny as soup before.
This morning Marcos had some mixed grain cereal with little pieces of peaches in it. I gave him an apple puree around lunchtime and then at dinnertime I gave him some mashed squash of which he only took a few bites. He usually eats much more than that but he was super cranky today because of teething, so he didn't have much of an appetite.
For the soup, what you could probably do is crumble up a couple of soda crackers in there to absorb some of the broth, and that would make it easier for her to eat.
Since my SO and I both go to school during the week, her Aunt usually feeds her an assortment of things. Though, we do have a basic schedule to make sure she's getting enough of everything.
In the mornings, she has cereal and we try to change up the flavors every day. For lunch she has some veggies and some fruit. And then for supper she has a meat with her veggies (chicken and sweet potato for instance) and fruit as well.
Today I have no school so I am doing the feeding. She had some oat cereal this morning with a banana cookie. For lunch I am thinking about giving her squash with some blueberries. Supper will probably be turkey and sweet potato.

Was it the Heinz Farley's biscuits? I bought some for Marcos yesterday and gave it to him for the first time. He absolutely loved it. He would have devoured the whole thing had he not dropped it on the floor next to the kitty litter box and I had to throw it out.
Kiam...I know getting nutrients are important. But for something sweet with natural sugar...this is the way to go by cooking them longer, when I make mine for the sweet part of it only, I overcook it so that it builds up that hardened sweetened curst type thing and it is really a super good sugary sweet for young ones. But without the refined sugar!
I usually cook them for around 45mins, with olive oil and they just go to mush. I'm starting to think that this may be one of the downsides to having such an old oven, pork crackling doesn't work in my oven either, at our old house when I had an electric fan forced it came out wonderfully, but now I have a 40-something year old gas oven, the type you have to light with gas lighter gun. My cakes come out better in this one, but anything I want to go crispy seems to fail.
Today Audrey had scrambled eggs for breakfast, I was a bit wary because I had a bad reaction to eggs wen I was a baby and my mother has been reminding me of that just about every day since Audrey has started solids, but she loved them and no reaction at all (I know the chances of her having the same digestive issues as me were slim, but hearing it so often really screws with your head), for lunch she had a cheese, tomato and corn mini muffin and for dinner she is having baked snapper with whatever veggies I decide to make with it, most likely asparagus and something else.
