D looks like he got in a hockey fight here, but really he loved trying the beets after a week of being back on solely breast milk. We reverted his diet due to what I am suspecting is a dairy intolerance. I'd love to hear any insight you might have to this. Without getting into the gory details, something was not agreeing with his tummy several times a day for a week so we eliminated all solids again to regulate his digestive system. Looking back closely at what I had been feeding him, it seems like some dried nonfat milk in a few foods may have been to blame, which makes sense since he couldn't tolerate dairy in my diet for the first 6 months of his life.
Today is our cat's 8th birthday, so naturally, we had to make a cat paw cake.
Mr. SPS and D particularly enjoyed my chilled zucchini soup. I was inspired by and combined two recipes so I'll write ours out for you.
Chilled Zucchini Soup
medium white onion, chopped
equivalent of 2 cloves of garlic (I used dried minced)
2 teaspoons curry
6 small or 4 large zucchini, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
6 cups vegetable broth
Saute onions and garlic in oil until soft. Add curry and salt & pepper. Add zucchini, lower heat, and cook until soft. Add stock and simmer for an additional 30 minutes. Cool completely, blend, then chill before serving.
