Charlotte’s Lunch was Bigger Than Mine

She ate ALL of this plus a meatball, a zucchini spear and a potato!

I swear, I’m not exaggerating. The tiny one ate 2 chicken Apple meatballs, 5.5 Rosemary fingerling potatoes, and 5 giant spears of steamed zucchini (aka over half a large zucchini)… I had a salad.

Clearly she gets her love of food from Mark and I, because this girl can literally take down a meal.

As for the recipes…


Chicken meatballs

I cheated with the meatballs. I bought 1 lb of ground Apple chicken sausage from the outpost (made with all whole food ingredients) and added…

1 shredded zucchini (gotta make sure this chickidee gets her veggies)

1/2 – 1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

I mixed it all up and rolled into 1″ balls

Cook on a lined baking sheet for 20 minutes at 350 degrees


Steamed Zucchini

I just cut however zucchinis I’m cooking in half and then into quarters lengthwise

Boil about an inch of water, plop zucchini in your steamer basket over the boiling pot of water, cover and let steam for about 8-10 minutes.

DONE! And she LOVES them…


Rosemary Fingerling Potatoes

Again, talk about simple…

1 bag of fingerling potatoes washed

Toss with:

1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

2 Pinches of Rosemary

Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes

    • She is definitely weaning… It makes me sad. She really only nurses 3-4 times a day… Which equates to before both of her naps and before bed. Sometimes she’ll nurse when she wakes up, but it’s usually just a quick milk snack. In terms of solids, she eats three big meals a day. No snacks.
