My, but it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Last weekend I was in San Francisco for my race, and I visited a friend from college who lives in the Bay area. He asked if I was still cooking, which is a fair question since I have not been posting. And the answer is yes, I have been cooking. Just not writing about it.
There is this feeling of obligation (for me at least) that if I haven’t posted in ages, my opening post must be epic! And contain tons of pictures! Etc. But I haven’t had time to compose an epic, photo-heavy post because the child is distracting me.
An adorable distraction, but a distraction nonetheless. Which is as it should be, but I’d like to post more often. So here goes.
It’s fall! Time for soup and stew and butternut squash in everything. Today I’m making cochinita pibil and also boeuf bourguignon, Julia Child’s recipe. I also made some beginner’s beef ragout from this book for the baby.
She loved it. So far, feeding E has been a lot of fun. She likes everything but avocado (darn. More avocado for meeee!) so far. We’ve been using a mix of homemade and store-bought foods, and she’s just starting to get some meals at daycare too.
I think we’re going to try and work our way out of purees and see if she can start feeding herself soon. If nothing else, the dogs will LOVE it when she throws things on the floor. Especially Nettie.
