On another meal time for Mason has become quite a battle. He hates to sit in his high chair and it was starting to make me CRAZY. So I decided okay...I'll just let you craze. I tell you what he's eating everything now and healthy stuff too. Now he like to stand on his step stool and eat at the counter. This morning while I was making coffee I put his eggs, banana and cheerios on a plate on the counter and he sat there with his fork and ate his eggs like a big boy why I made coffee. He's such an independent thing. So with that said...any moms out there who are having trouble with there little ones eating habits I would say try not putting them in the high chair. Its really not worth all the stress.
Also, my sister (http://waltonsinaustin.blogspot.com/) told me about a crock pot recipe that's a big hit on thenest.com local Austin message board called Ka's Chicken Tacos. I made them last night and they are now my go to dinner. So easy I did all with my 25lb baby on my hip. Here's the recipes. I make a side of refried beans and put them in soft tacos. Delish!! Make this ASAP!!!
All you need:
3 chicken breasts (you may use frozen)
1 package of chicken taco seasoning
1 can of Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles (or pico de gallo)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup of olive oil20
Set crock pot on low
Add Taco Seasoning. I used McCormick's but any brand will do.
Put chicken breasts on top of the taco seasoning. Add the Rotel, water and oil.
Leave in crock pot for 6-8 hours. Around the sixth hour, turn up heat to high.
This step is optional: Pour contents of crock pot in a a deep skillet (including liquid.)Push chicken pieces to the sides of the pan, leaving a 'hole filled with sauce'.Add two tablespoons of flour or cornstarch to the 'hole' for thickening the sauce.
As the sauce thickens, use two forks to shred chicken.
