Jonathan’s Meal #2

Jonathan boy’s porridge on weekends has the most variety of ingredients as I have more time compare to working days where my time is limited.  And since Jonathan can chew quite well now, I decided to cut the potato into tiny cubes rather than grated potato. To add some colour to the porridge, I put in a cut of salmon. The porridge will turn out quite plain with just potato and salmon so I think some raisins will give a sweet-sour taste and additional colour to the porridge.

It turn up pretty good. The taste blended well. To avoid Jonathan boy from swallowing the whole raisin without chewing, I don’t mix the raisin with porridge on his spoon. I fed him raisin only so that he will chew and be able to taste the raisin. Otherwise, I mash the raisin a little and mix with the porridge. You can substitute raisins with red dates or wolfberry.

  7. Julie says:

    June – Yes, you can. Kei Chi is wolfberry as what I also suggested. Baby’s porridge is also so much tastier than adult food. 😛

    Anggie & Ryan’s mami – Happy trying.

    Joanne – Whatever you give him he will surely finishes all. Sometimes he ask for more.

    Littlelamb – Definitely fun. Full of experiment. Also, I can wait till he’s big enough to cook with me.

    Hui Sia – Total 8. Four each on upper and lower.

    Caroline – I’ve never tried grapes with porridge. Yeah, wonder how’s the taste.

    Joanne – Jonathan is not a fussy eater. That’s why I enjoyed feeding him.

    Yugene – I’ll share the salmon recipe if I have a special one.

    Mistymom – I bet you will load your luggage with chinese herbs each time you are leaving Malaysia.

    Nothing beats a good homecooked porridge made with loving thoughts.
