I am proud to be a Chin-dian!!! My daddy is an Indian American, mummy a Malaysian Chinese and they met in the States while working together at Cummins, Inc.

Baby Si 11-16th solid food...

Now that baby Si is 8+ months, Mummy has the green light to feed baby Si with new foods (other than fruits n vegetables)!
--------------------------------------------------
11th solid food: beef + porridge (multigrain rice + all sorts of vegetables)
Her 1st meat ;)

So what does baby Si think of her gourmet meal???

THE RESULT?
Baby Si: yummy...but a lil bit watery! thus a bit messy :p
Mummy: No preference on which type of meat to start baby Si with! Actually gong gong was the one that chose beef as that was the meat in the freezer at that moment! Mind you, gong gong cooked baby Si's first porridge meal :)

--------------------------------------------------
12th solid food: fish + porridge (multigrain rice + all sorts of vegetables)
Her 2nd meat :)
--------------------------------------------------
13th solid food: chicken + porridge (multigrain rice + all sorts of vegetables)
Her 3rd meat :)
--------------------------------------------------
14th, 15th, 16th solid food: pork + egg YOLK (egg whites is a no no as it's one of the high risk allergy food) + CHEESE + porridge (multigrain rice + all sorts of vegetables)
Her 4th meat :)

So what does baby Si think of her gourmet meal???

THE RESULT?
Baby Si: gong gong porridge is getting tastier!!!

Mummy: happy as this mummy is on vacation n off from cooking ;)

Note: was looking forward to feeding baby Si cheese (as mummy n daddy r BIG fans of cheese) but baby Si didn't really like it!!! Maybe cause cheese (western) doesn't go with porridge (Asian)... Will try some western combination next time (mash potato wt cheese perhaps?)

--------------------------------------------------
What new food should I intro next?
Stay tune to find out ;)

Note to my western readers: porridge aka congee http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congee
Is famous in this part of the world especially famous to the Chinese...babies eat it, adults eat it when u r feeling sick, toothache, fed it to mr hubby when he had braces on for the first week, occasionally when having cravings for it (when u need a break from the normal rice, noodles, bread, pratha, etc...)
U guys should try it especially during those cold winter days!!! Just add in all sorts of meat n vegs! One wholesome meal in a pot ;) easy peasy meal...mind u, u can eat it for days...

Note: I'm amazed to find out that the word congee originated from Tamil!!! But funnily, mr.Hubby tasted his first porridge from his wifey... Maybe Indians prepare it differently? I'm up to try it!!! Who can cook Indian porridge???
