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.
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 🙂
