Life: food making & new toy for Sofia


Sunday morning food preparation. This time involved preparing for Sofia. I made a batch of zucchini-pear-baby oatmeal. It was really easy, just steam zucchini and pear for few minutes and blend everything. Sofia liked this combo, she ate a bowl of it right away! 🙂

Last week I brought sandwiches from work for mom and really loved the bread. So my mission was to recreate it and make it healthier.

Whole wheat buns with sunflower seeds:

  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup WW flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp yeast

All into the bread machine, choose the dough cycle, form the buns, let it rest for an hour in a warm place (oven with light on), brush with egg+water, top with raw sunflower seeds and bake at 380F for 15 min. Viola. Soft, spongy buns with some crunchiness.

I love that she’s been smiling more often lately. Sometimes even after an hour of crying/protesting, the moment I pick her up, she’d smile to me like nothing happened.

she’s definitely having fun. It’s amazing how much fun and happiness I get just by looking at her playing with it. The wonder in her look is the most amazing I’ve ever seen. I’d do anything to keep that look FOREVER! 🙂
