Yesterday I took Babycakes swimming at my aunt and uncle's house. I thought I could get a few things done during her nap but she only slept for another hour. When she woke up she was SUPER cuddly, which was nice, but I knew she wasn't feeling well. Sure enough she was running a low grade fever. She was so clingy that I wasn't able to get anything done. I even had to put her on my back so I could make dinner.
She didn't sleep well last night which means no one slept well. So I made an appointment when we rolled out of bed this morning with her pediatrician. Diagnosis: ear infection and eye infection. So another round of antibiotics and eye drops. Have you even given eye drops to a 2 year old? I don't recommend it.
Anyway, back to the point of my post. While Monday was definitely a day of procrastination, the past two days have been Mommy duty. I also mentioned last week that I made some purees that I would talk about in a later post. So here is that post.
A couple of years ago I picked up a copy of Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious cookbook on the bargain table.
I decided to start using her recipes/ideas to include more veggies in our diets. The Hubs is a big fan of sloppy joes so I thought I would try her version to see if it would pass muster. Since her recipe called for some things 1.) I didn't have on hand and 2.) I knew someone didn't like, the recipe below is my version of her recipe. Capiche?
Okay, I started by browning a pound of ground beef in the skillet.
I used vegetable broth because it's what I had on hand and I was trying to use up what was in the fridge.
We were out of hamburger and hotdog buns so I served them on toasted white bread with a side of sweet potato fries. The Hubs and I also had side salads and Babycakes had some cucumbers from the garden.
