  1. I’d love to see the zucchini skillet. What are the portions for the toddlers – for example how much Soy Loaf to relish to zucchini skillet?

    Zucchini skillet is just zucchini sliced very thin lenghtwise with a carrot peeler, then tossed in a frying pan with some diced tomatoes (canned is fine). Sometimes I sautee some onions first. Serve warm, and sprinkle with Parmesan, if they want it. (Grated Parmesan is called “sprinkle cheese” in this house.)

    Portions are very small for new things: a single bite is often all I give them … but they have to swallow it before they get anything else!

    I measure toddler servings for most things in tablespoons or quarter cups, but it varies hugely by child. Tiny Rosie (she’s 14 months now) is a light eater: a tablespoon or two of food most meals. She’s still primarily milk-feeding. Solid little Poppy (2.5 years) will pack away three or four servings of most things, totalling 1.5 to two full (8-ounce) cups of food, some days even more. (That’s a LOT of food for a toddler!)

  2. How do you make your homemade mac and cheese? I know a little boy who would adore that.

    I usually cook the pasta, then make a white sauce and stir it into the pasta, add a couple of handfuls of grated cheddar, stir it through, top with more, and pop it in the oven at 350 for half an hour. This time, though, I used the recipe from this year’s Milk Calendar, which was SOOOOooooo easy … Can I find a link to it, however? No, I cannot! Don’t worry: I’ll transcribe it into a post.
