Eesa turned 1 last month, and for some reason he hasn’t been eating as much. He used to be able to eat a whole bowl of oats for breakfast, and a full lunch and dinner meals, with snacks in between. but he caught a bad bout of coughing and ever since that he has been quite fussy with his food. There were even a few days when he refused to eat his all time favourite banana. It’s heartbreaking!
I’m no whiz in the kitchen – Shafiq will attest tothe fact that he cooks more than I do. It’s just not something I really enjoy doing,
- Because it takes so much time and energy
- THE CLEANUP
- What to cook what to cook what to cook
- The commentary on the food after I finally finish making my masterpiece.
But with Eesa I had to strap on the apron and cook. At first it was pretty basic, single ingredient purees. Then as he grew and tastes developed I had to get creative, which meant basically throwing whatever was in the fridge into the pot. Alhamdulillah Eesa ate most of it with no fuss, even though to us adults my combinations would raise eyebrows, not to mention how horrible some of it looked. I guess it helped that Eesa couldn’t actually say anything hahaha!
