I didn’t move to Spain for the rainy weather, but that is what today has delivered! Crappy, ugly gray skies followed by ruin-any-opportunity-to-do-anything-outside-RAIN! But as a former-farmgirl…what do we do on these days….anyone???…bake some goodies!!!!!
I decided it was time to home-make my little bug a healthy treat and I decided on Cheesy Squares compliments of Healthy First Foods for Your Baby by Caitilin Finch. She says that babies can start on these at 6 months. But I must tell you that they are great for all ages! I remember “borrowing” a few of these off my niece a few years back!
I don’t know about you but I’m totally okay with buying this type of thing from the grocery store but these are so Easy, Cheap and Healthy with, NO sugar, NO salt, and NO added flavoring crap that I just feel better making them myself!! (If you have toddlers, these would be great to make together)
Let’s get bakin’!!
1 c. flour (I used plain, but I’d try whole wheat next time)
3.5 tbsp of butter
6 tbsp cold water
2 tbsp cheese (mild cheddar if you have a baby)
1. Pre-heat over to 355 F or 180 C.
Fold the pastry in half and roll out again. Fold in half a SECOND time and roll pastry out into a square shape
Cut with knife, pastry cutter or pizza cutter as I used into 1 inch squares, or you can do 1/2 inch strips and twist
Place on tray and bake for 15 minutes until they have a golden color.
We had to resort to an indoor workout today. Luckily my in-laws have a nice little home gym next door with a X-trainer/Elliptical machine. I’m not the biggest fan of X-trainers but if I increase my resistance often enough, I luckily can get in 20 minutes before little bug loses interest in her ball workout. Here’s what I did:
We followed this with some Mommy & Baby exercises until lunch time! It was nice little workout to start the weekend! Happy, Happy Weekend everybody!
COMING UP: NEW 5 minute workout!
