Fresh grated peccorino romano drizzled with a fruity extra virgin olive oil

Giselle and Jon went for a run along Lake Michigan this morning and left me with Trena for a few hours.
She had already had her breakfast, but it was getting near mid-morning and time for a little snack!
I had recently been reading Nina Planck's book, "Real Food for Mother and Baby" and she was recommending nutrient dense foods for little ones just starting table foods.
Trena has been eating big people food for quite a while, so I thought I would see if she liked one of Nina's recommendations.

Oh, yeah!

She ate that little bit, then another little bit, then another little bit! Then we took turns feeding each other little bits!

Trena and Cherokee Purple, one of the 6 few varieties of heirloom tomatoes I put in this spring.

Hmmm...perhaps tomorrows snack could be heirloom tomatoes mixed with peccorino romano and olive oil!

Coming soon: a book review!

Nina Planck's "Real Food: What to Eat and Why"

It was after reading this, her first book, that I sent off for her 2nd book,
"Real Food for Mother and Baby" and mailed it off to Giselle for her birthday this year.

This has been an incredibly busy couple of weeks, but I promise, I will be back soon with my review.


Pin It!

Such a sweetie! you have.
Very interested in your book review.
We also love things that are pickled around here. I think my dear hubby could have pickles for every meal:)

Well, what could be better than a snack with a grand daughter?! Nothin' in my book! :~P

So adorable! I'll bet your tomatoes are much better than Cheerios.

Valerie said...

Cyn, I got some furtile eggs from a friend and put them under a broody hen of mine and they are starting to hatch. :o)
Do I need to provide food and water for the chicks? The hen can get down for food and wat er but not the chicks. Maybe I better put them in a big dog crate for a bit?

Farmgirl Cyn said...

AAAGGHH! I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' chicks! I am pretty sure they have to be down where there is water tho. Make sure it is water they can't drown in...we lost a duck that way once. Oh, and don't let the other chickens near the chicks. And they need special feed...growing mash, not laying mash.
