A Few New Recipes

Lately I have been in a recipe rut.

I either don't have the time, energy, or resources to cook something new.

But I really do love trying new recipes, so this week I was determined to make time, save my energy, and stock my fridge / pantry with the necessary ingredients. 

First - these cinnamon quinoa bars.

Perfect for the leftover quinoa about to perish in my fridge.  


These aren't for the faint of heart.  Or should I say, if you don't like quinoa, you won't like these.  However, if you do like quinoa, they are a perfectly portable healthy snack - that still need a little sweetening with fruit or the like.

Second - pineapple and cashew (and shrimp!) fried rice

I made this for dinner last night and everyone was a fan.  Dan even added raisins to his.  

Third - I made Ina peas (2 C peas and 1/2 C water pureed to oblivion)

I know that really doesn't count, but I take it where I can get it.

At 6.5 months she has now had (in this order) brown rice cereal, sweet potatoes, carrots, avocados, zucchini, squash, and peas.  

And a taste of Blue Bell ice cream.  

And a taste of tuna salad.  

And a taste of pineapple, cashew, and shrimp fried rice.  

Don't judge - it is very hard to say no to that face.

Have a blessed day! <3

  1. I love the new food stage. Any veggie that you are eating is a great one to mash up and feed to her. I hope that she loves all the new foods that she tries. A foodie like her mommy :)
