Fun with toddler food

I know he's not technically a toddler for another few days, but whatever, he's a toddler and eats toddler food!

The past few weeks Jack has given us a preview to his teenage years by eating us out of house and home. Homeboy ate about 50% of a rotisserie chicken over the last 3 days, and can eat half an avocado a day. He also ate 8 oz of homemade applesauce 1 night for dinner AFTER having a chicken sausage, 1 kiwi, 4 oz of arroz con pollo, and 2 oz of diced cinnamon apples, and about 20 oz of breastmilk during the day. And if you happen to have your finger near his mouth while he's eating, you're libel to pull back a stump.

He's been on a "no veggies" kick lately, so we're trying to find new ways to sneak them in. I made gluten and dairy free pancakes on Sunday and added about a cup of steamed and pureed sweet potatoes to the batter. Threw in some blueberries (Jack crack), and little man loved them! Sucker.

On Sunday I also I made him gluten and dairy free chicken pot pies. Using Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Baking flour, xatham gum, a little shortening, and some water, I made a "crust". I pressed the crust in to a greased large muffin tin, filled it with the pot pie filling, and patted a little topping over that. Baked for 25 minutes and voila, le petit pot pies that Mix Master J was double fisting for dinner.
