Toddler Food: What Miss G Eats {6}

I’ve received some really good feedback about these Toddler Food posts, so I’ll keep them coming for the next little while.  There are two questions I’ve received several times each, so I thought I’d share the answers in case anyone else is wondering the same things…

Do you cook something new for every single meal / snack?

No.  Absolutely not!  We’re all about the leftovers in our house.  None of us mind eating the same thing two days in a row and it makes my job a heck of a lot easier, so I’ll often cook a big dinner in order to have an easy lunch the following day.  And as far as snacks go, there’s rarely any cooking involved.  I keep them very simple (or extremely simple judging by this week’s photos of orange slices and banana chips) and most often I can have a snack on the table in 60 seconds or less.

Where did you get Gracen’s vintage-looking Peter Rabbit dishes?

All of the dishes actually used to belong to Bradley when he was a little boy!  The ones that are date stamped are labeled 1981 to 1984, making them actual vintage by most standards, I guess.  I love the fact that our little lady eats off of the same plates that her Papa did nearly 30 years ago.

So with that, here are some of the things Miss G ate this week…
