Resuming Routines

Thanks to a cold-turned-viral infection, Raptor has been completely uninterested in food for a few weeks. It started when the snuffles started, and got worse as Raptor did. At the worst point, he was only just taking enough milk to keep himself hydrated, but things are better now.

Yesterday saw a kiwi fall victim to his little claws and his ever improving coordination. Today, we all ate dinner together again for the first time. Garlic, Chilli and Coriander Chicken with Red peppers and noodles. (5 cloves of garlic, a bit of fresh chilli pepper and a handful of fresh coriander leaves with some basil-olive oil blended as marinade. Marinade chicken for as long as you want, then fry in olive oil with chopped red peppers. Cook noodles and add to chicken, toss till covered in the marinade. Serve.) Yum. This was the first time Raptor ever encountered meat, and he could not get enough of it. One piece in each little fist, he chomped away at his little pile of food for about an hour. I think he liked the meat because it didn’t slip out of his hand or break on the way to his mouth. It wasn’t even particularly messy – his aim is definitely improving. I dare say it went down well.

To be honest, I don’t know. They change their minds all the time. I only briefly mentioned it in passing and she said it was fine as long as we had no allergies, which we don’t.
But I was told to avoid Strawberries?
