Mr 6 loves tacos more than any other food. In fact he recently said that I was 2 trillion the best because I made him tacos for dinner. I also love tacos because they are super easy to make. I buy the stand n stuff soft tacos (or taco boats as we like to call them) because they are easier for Mr 6 to handle.
Like our sleeping issues, around the age of two Mr 6 decided that most food was in fact gross and he was having no part of it. I look back at photos of him trying solids where he at almost anything put in front of him and it’s enough to make to me scream. Meal times became a struggle and a lot of the time I wondered why I even bothered cooking delicious meals. The first thing to go was the kitchen table. Mr 6 seemed to get quite distressed about being made to sit and eat. Even now he often walks around or bounces his legs while eating. The social etiquette of eating at a table just didn’t feel worth the stress it was putting on both Mr 6 and myself. He was eating more when meals were not as rigid too.

I don’t know about anyone else but I have not been feeling Easter this year and procrastination is in overdrive. I still haven’t gotten all of our Easter eggs and the motivation just isn’t there this year. I usually get super excited about Easter and setting everything up read for the Bunny to arrive. I mean, it’s a holiday that encourages the over consumption of chocolate. What’s not to love!?
Summer and ice-cream go hand in hand. There’s nothing better than an ice-cream on a hot Summer’s day. I’m a bit of a stick in the mud when it comes to flavours though. Once I find a favourite flavour, I am hesitant to try anything else. Better the devil you know and all that.
The following recipe first appeared in Summer Table by Jodie Blight. She has also provided the image to accompany the post.
Last week, as part of the Christmas Gift Guide I shared a cookbook called Summer Table. Jodie has also agreed to share a recipe from the book here today. Paul and I gave this recipe a whirl on the weekend and it was delicious. It was super easy to make and perfect for the hot weather. To purchase Jodie’s book Summer Table and keep up to date with any new projects (I’ve heard that there is another cookbook on it’s way) head to her website!
