I've been getting a bit of gentle ribbing about how much time and effort I spend cooking and how ridiculous the Troll's diet is, so I thought I would have a little fun and draw up a menu of the things he might eat in a regular week. (I used musthavemenus.com to design it as I couldn't be bothered messing about in Word, hence the hideous watermark.)
He now eats what we eat, so this menu is a pretty good snapshot of the kinds of things I normally like cooking. Everything on the menu (including the dinners) is something that he has eaten in the last week or so, albeit in maybe a slightly more mashed up and visually less appealing form than what ends up on our plates. It's as much about me continuing to have a good time in the kitchen and experimenting with new dishes as it is about him having a varied and balanced diet.
What's especially fun now is just how much he seems to enjoy watching me cook (and listening as I narrate each step). Each time he tries to stand up in his (safely positioned) little high chair to excitedly and attentively peer into the pot, or at the chopping board, my heart sings. He seems to love food as much as I do, and I hope in time he comes to love cooking it in the same way, too.
