Impressed? You'd Better Be
So, this week I have managed the recommended two portions of fish. I am so proud of myself. And also confused. Let me start at the beginning. Like I'd mentioned before, I wanted to start eating healthier so I can be a good example for Boy. And eating healthier includes eating more fish, which I detest. So for the first meal, I used a recipe in Anabel Karmel's Cookbook for Babies and Toddlers which involved a strong cheese sauce. What could be better? Can't taste the fish because of all the yummy cheese.. except it wasn't necessary, because the cod actually tasted nice to me. I'd only really had fish-and-chips cod or frozen cod. This was fresh and baked nicely. And, then my husband went out and bought me salmon for lunch today. I thought, OK - just eat it with another strong tasting sauce. Again, I DIDN'T NEED TO. How is this possible? After all these years of not being able to stand fish, I think I actually like the taste. What have I been missing out on?!
