I love Pinterest. I have heard it said that Pinterest is where you look at things you’ll never do, and I think for the most part, that is true. I mean, I’ve pinned this gorgeous quilt made of old baby clothes. It’s beautiful, but I seriously doubt I will ever have the time or the skills to create it.
But I do try to do things I pin. One of the most popular pins on my Weaning board is these Pea Fritters. I made them once upon a baby-led weaning time, and I nibbled more than my fair share too.
The pea fritters are a creation from the website mylovelylittlelunchbox.com, which is full of brilliant recipes for babies and toddlers who are weaning.
Today, for no real reason at all, we had a day of staying in the house. I only popped out for an hour while I went to the hospital, but James didn’t go outside all day! He was so happy with his toys, and we’ve not had a day where he’s happy playing independently since Noah was born. Anyway, I digress. So today we made these pea fritters again.
I set James away snipping the spring onions with scissors. He’s thrilled to help, and loves using scissors, so this is an easy and useful way to get him involved.
I bunged all the ingredients into the blender. It turned into this gorgeous gloopy green mixture. James folded in some whole peas before I cooked them up.
James munched away on the warm fritter and declared it to be “yummy” and “a pea cake”, which is like a pancake but with peas. He’s doing a peculiar thing at the moment where he pretends to eat while he’s eating, so that’s why he looks odd in this photo!
So there you go, a Pinterest pin in action 🙂
