Things have been busy lately. Henry has been on a strange schedule, and honestly I have no idea what I've been feeding him or what he's been eating. All I know is that he has been eating loads of watermelon.
This weekend, I tried to get his routine back to normal and introduce some new foods again. For Friday night dinner, I was short on time so I quickly threw together some polenta. It was very basic - cornmeal, water, and fake chicken consomme powder. I mixed it all together over medium heat, spread it on a baking sheet, and then baked it at 350 for about 15 minutes. I thought Henry would love it - he loves corn and he tend to love anything starchy. But, Henry's only 22 months old, has a definite opinion now, and refused to even let it touch his highchair tray. Since I didn't want to create a bad association, I removed it from his plate, and left him alone.
Sunday night I decided to try again. Again, Henry didn't want it on his tray. But then I decided to use the polenta as a crust and put tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese on top. Next thing I knew, Henry was scarfing down polenta pizza. Success!
Happy and (mostly) healthy eating!
