#70 – Make homemade coloured pasta

Since making fresh pasta for the first time in 2013, Adam has become our resident pasta-making expert and regularly makes it.  He was keen to up his game and try a coloured pasta, so along with his little sous chef, made spinach spaghetti.  So delicious (though questionable plating).

#64 – Make homemade baby food

I have loved making Henry food (so far!).  I found a site I really like (Baby FoodE), that uses really interesting combinations and spices, my hope being that he is an adventurous eater.  Below is yesterday’s batch of food, hopefully it will last a few days.  Not pictured are Henry’s daily avocado (his favourite) and egg.  He’s on a big fruit kick right now, and isn’t that interested in veggies, so we’re just going with it for now (and hiding spinach and kale in fruit mixes once in a while).


Details: Roasted Blueberry recipe found here.  Plum, blueberries & spinach found here (I left out the cilantro since I didn’t have any).  Pear, prunes and clove found here.  Roasted apple and blackberry recipe found here.

#42 – Get Beavertails

When we were kids, my family would go to Ottawa every winter to visit my aunt and uncle, partake in Winterlude and all sorts of highly Canadian winter activities.  One of which was skating up the Rideau Canal.  We’d start at point A, and point B was always the Beavertail stand, so halfway through our skate we’d stop and devour a warm Beavertail and a hot chocolate at a picnic table on the ice.  Canadiana at its finest.

For our American readers, Beavertails are essentially flat, oval doughnuts, I guess vaguely resembling the shape of a beaver’s tail (it’s a stretch though, tbh).  And they are flat out delicious.

We hit up the Toronto Zoo last weekend and they have a Beavertail truck, so we indulged.  Adam got a Nutella covered option, while I went with the classic Killaloe (sugar, cinnamon and a wedge of lemon).


Details: Beavertails are set up at a few permanent locations, plus they pop up at festivals and are available for catering.  Info can be found here.

#31 – Get Henry a passport

Little Henry is now the proud owner of his very own passport; complete with baby mugshot. He looks like he’s pretty pleased with his new-found ability to adventure past our borders though, don’t you think?
