Macaroni – Second Attempt

I think I still not done with it. Yes, I mean the macaroni. Learning from the past mistake of blending it, instead this time I cooked it with soup.

I've "stole" the idea from "Lets Get Wokking" a.k.a Elaine, using corn and celery to make the soup base. And you could not believe the sweet aroma from the soup. It is exactly smell like sea coconut dessert.

This morning, when Sarah had her first taste on the food, again..she was frowning. But after had her second taste, she quite liked it. I think she loves the chewiness from the macaroni and celery. Oh ya, this is also the first time I introduced celery to her, luckily she likes it.

But the tedious part in feeding her the meal is, I have to cut the macaroni into smaller piece, so that she wont get chocked. And every time when I feed her the macaroni, I will add in some soup and celery in the spoon too, so that the macaroni will taste nicer for her (as you all know, the blunt taste of macaroni).

JT, well done to you. Your dish simply looks yummy and even I myself also feel like eating :) If you don't like to cut the macaroni everytime you feed her, why not you buy the cute ABC shape of pasta instead of macaroni? I think they are really cute and I have bought a pack for Angel but yet to think of what to do with it :)

Hi Doreen, thanks for your comment. Yes, i did put in few slices of pork.
But I think without it also okay, coz the sweetness and aroma from the corn is good enuf.

Mommy Gwen, hehe.what to do. For the sake of Sarah healthy diet, then have to think left and right lor..
- Hope Gwen likes it. But I think you can add more vege inside it. For eg, carrot, potato and etc...

Caroline, Thanks for your comment. Has such type of pasta? Thanks for telling me, the next time I go to supermarket, will look for it. Is true leh, is cute and easier also (as you said, no need to cut it in small pieces).
Waiting for your menu on ABC pasta ya..

I believe not only Sarah would love the macaroni. If were me, i will like it too!

I have not given macaroni to Jonathan. Afraid he will get choke cause he don't chew on food but straight away swallow it.

How do you prepare the celery? Do you chop it finely too?

U really always got new idea to cook new food for Sarah :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Kylie - Hehe...I think I like to cook food for Sarah than my husband. Coz Sarah is not so picky in terms of the food I prepared for her :-)

Julie - Ooo..Jonathan has teeth now? Maybe he doesnt like to chew food? Ok, if there is the case, maybe you need to cut the macaroni into tiny pieces.
- Yes, I chopped it finely and since it is the main ingredient to make this sup more aroma, so I throw them in when I started to boil the sup.


Serene - Hehe..You also like it ya? Ok, next time come to PJ, I cook for you.

Joanne..you're a good mum and a good cooker la. Me too think that the macaroni look delicious. But I haven't introduce this to qistina yet.

Celery also one thing. Sorry to say that I hate celery but I want to introduce it to qistina. Dont want her to end up like me, cant tolerate with celery at all. Past time mummy cant afford to buy celery so thats why celery is weird to me..poor me ha!

As you said.. I also want to teach qistina not to be very picky like me in choosing food..mum always want the best for their baby kan..

Looks like I have to take my time and try to cook your receipe for qistina la..thanks for the idea Joanne!

Sha, I remember you told me that Tina likes to eat food with chewy texture. Then, I think macaroni suits her. Coz it does have the chewy texture.
- You dont like celery, is it because of the taste of it? I like it very much. Sometimes I will cooked it with sotong. Is nice!
- You are a good mom also, coz you try to inrto balance food for Tina. So we both have to be more put effot in this..
- No thanks Sha, we learned together.
