This has to be one of the most endearing of all the Lucy/Desi episodes. For those of you wondering, My Baby in this case is my son Ted and the Me, well that would be my daughter in law, Jan Marie of Asian Style Salmon Jan Marie fame.
These days when you know everything about everything, including sex, time and place and possibly even weight, we know that my second grandchild, a boy, will be born this Sunday, sometime around noon. Gee, I can even look up his horoscope and if I don't like the Ascendant (determined by time of day), maybe we can delay the birth an hour or two? Somehow, I don't think that will fly. . Well, in any event, we are all soooooooo excited and cant' wait for the newest cook in the family to be born. How do I know he will be a great cook? In this family we start them early. We have to give them a head start otherwise they will never survive the onslaught of lifetime criticism they will endure from the rest of the family cooks. In this family, we take no prisoners!
My granddaughter's first cooking lesson...age 4 weeks!
I will have to say, and believe me, I am NOT bragging, that I am happy my granddaughter eats everything, from avocados to blueberries. When she comes to my house and I ask what to cook for her, her mother tells me she'll eat whatever we are having, and she does. I will be eternally grateful to my daughter in law for introducing her to a variety of fruits and vegetables and different types of food at this early age. If there is something I can't stand is kids and adults who have pet peeves about food. Oh, oh, and she drinks water when she is thirsty, none of this juice thing, WATER! I tell you, this kid is well on her way to perfect nutrition!
The product of good nutrition!
One of the things that got the ball rolling was a gift my daughter gave them (at my suggestion) of the Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker available at Williams Sonoma. It got my daughter in law making her real food from the start instead of feeding her baby food from a jar. From then on, there was no turning back. I think it is the best gift you can give an expectant mother.
Well, I guess what I'm also trying to say is that Lindaraxa will be very busy for the rest of the month, enjoying and helping with her new grand baby and will not be posting as often as she would like to. But I'll be back full force in September... with pictures!
Take the time to look over the Master Recipe Index on the right. I'm sure there is plenty of stuff you haven't seen or made. Well, I don't know why I'm so concerned. After all, I'm not your analyst taking the month of August and worried you will all be pregnant when I come back. That's what usually happens, or so I hear!
