Fed Friday's

Fed Friday’s – Baby’s first solids pt.2

So, our journey with solids continues. Since last week, he’s tried cucumber (randomly) and peas yesterday.

First of all, are babies allowed cucumbers raw? I can’t imagine eating cucumbers not raw. He had a bit of a taste when we were over at my fiancé’s moms house for a barbecue. He just wanted to eat what I was eating, so I looked at my fiancé and he shrugged sure so I let my baby suck on a slice of cucumber. I had bit into it already, and later we just cut the skin off since that’s a bit tough for him.

I know I know, we keep getting too excited to feed him food and keep not following the rules.

One new food a day for 2-3 days. 

Anyways, we just started peas yesterday and he seems to like it. Definitely the pea out of the pod and definitely not the pod. Lol. Baby trying new foods is so much fun.

Fed Friday’s – Baby’s First Solids

Since Tux is now 6 months and we have just had our 6 month doctors appointment, it was time for solids.

We may have gotten too excited and may have started with two things. Please keep in mind, we asked our doctor and we did wait till the new recommendation of 6 months to feed him solids even though he has been ready for months.

One being baby mum-mums, which by the way was his very very first. 


Then, we tried broccoli, which most people wouldn’t try first but we did because a) we love broccoli and b) it’s a vegetable that isn’t too too sweet.


Being first time parents we are playing around with it just as much as our son is.

Since we started solids, we figured it was time to give him water too. We are only giving water with the solids not replacing formula one bit.


Today would be day 3 of broccoli. We only fed the single baby mum-mum that first day and saving the other one for times when we can’t feed him formula like in the car. 

What was your baby’s first solids?

Foodie Friday – Whistler Eats Part 1: BG Urban Grill Review

to: me

Last week, my boyfriend and I took a mini getaway to Whistler all thanks to a Christmas gift from his sister. We didn’t do much in Whistler but relax and spend time with each other. What we HAD to do though, was eat. So, I thought I would share some of the places we decided to food at while we were up there.

First stop was BG Urban Grill.



By the time we had gotten up, packed and drove up to Whistler. We were starving. So, we checked in to our hotel and left our stuff in the room and started roaming around for a place to eat. This was one of the first places we saw, and we decided to try it out.



I had the Thai Curry Wrap and my boyfriend got their cheddar burger I think. We also had a couple of alcoholic drinks that I can’t remember the name of. Lol. 

We were greeted and seated right away. We had asked for water to start as we were still trying to figure out what we would like to eat. When the water came and I was going to take a sip, the glass smelled like wet towel. I don’t know how to explain it but you know when your towel doesn’t try completely, it leaves a smell. Anyways, that’s kind of why we ordered some drinks. 

The food was good on the other hand. The Thai Curry Wrap was spicy but I like spice so I can’t complain. The sauce it came with complemented the wrap quite well, since it was a big sweet, it took down the heat a bit. 

The price wasn’t too bad for Whistler. 

Would I recommend it? 

I feel like there are other places in Whistler that we could have tried and wished we had planned out our dining options a little better. I don’t think it was horrible, I have had worst. It’s an option if you are looking for something not too fancy and not too expensive.

Originally I was going to put all of the places in one post but then, I realized how long this post already was with one review.

See you next week for my next Whistler Eats review!

Blogmas 2014 Day 19 – Foodie Friday’s: Birthday Foods

to: blogmas 2014

Since it was my boyfriends birthday yesterday, we had gone out to eat for lunch and dinner.

For lunch, we had gone to Wendy’s since we were running late. The boyfriend had chicken nuggets and I saw one that was shaped like a heart.

It was silly.

For dinner, we went to Joey’s. Here’s the birthday boy and our food.

For desert, we went back home and had some of the cake I made him.

Blogmas 2014 Day 12 – Foodie Fridays #vanchristmas edition

to: blogmas 2014

As you know, I went to the Vancouver Christmas Market yesterday. It was a long day of shopping, so I forgot about all the food stuff I had there.

There were quite a few food stalls, which made it difficult to decide what to get. We ended up starting with the Stick Style Pastries. I got Apple Cinnamon and the boyfriend got Chocolate and Blueberry.

Stick Style Pastries

 

The Stick Style Pastries were tasty and most importantly convenient to eat while walking around the market. The next thing we tried was the pretzels from the Brezelhaus.

The pretzel was ok but a bit hard. After the pretzel, I was getting thirsty and decided to give traditional mulled wine a try.

I’ll be honest, I am not a huge fan of warm alcohol. When I first got the mug of mulled wine, I would breathe in and get choked up on the alcoholic scent. Anyways, even though I wasn’t a fan of the mulled wine, I loved how they made you put a deposit down for the mug and if you wanted your deposit back, you just had to return the mug. If you didn’t, you got to keep the mug as a souvenir. Yes, I kept the mug as a souvenir, how could I not when it says Vancouver Christmas Market 2014 on it? The last food stop for me was the maple taffy.

IMG_0236.JPGThis maple taffy was very drippy. I was having trouble not dripping everywhere. It felt like I was eating maple syrup. I wish it was a little bit more solid but I think it just wasn’t cold enough. It probably didn’t help that I was eating it over my mug of mulled wine.

And that was all that I ate at the Vancouver Christmas Market. If you went, what did you eat there?
