Combining Flavours: Penguins in sauce (and don't skimp on the sauce!)

Jack is really expanding his food horizons more and more each day.  Just last night he ate a big plate of Jumbalia (a combination of spanish rice, BBQ chicken, italian sausage and shrimp) and loved it! He also is branching out in the world of crackers and has an addiction to anything that comes in a cracker sized box.  One of the most common words I think he says is "Cakcaw" or cracker to those who don't speak toddler. 

Something that he has taken to doing now is trying to dip his food in things. I am fully supporting this in the hopes that he will entertain the idea of veggies and dip or hummus or ketchup. Just anything to get him to eat more veggies.

And his new favourite is cheddar penguin crackers dipped in blueberry/apple sauce. He loves dipping it and more than that - he LOVED my first reaction to it which was complete surprise.  Then he thought it was so funny to do it over and over again.

After a while he just wanted a pile of applesauce so he could mush his cracker into it and eat them drenched in sauce.  I'm not gunna lie - that really grosses me out.  I don't enjoy soggy things AND I don't really care to have my food touching each other. I could be one of those adults who enjoy those plates with build in sections.

I am really pleased though that Jack is branching out and isn't being limited by my personal tastes - there is no way I'd ever think to do that for him.  He's developing his own recipes already!

Dirty face hamming it up!
