Rajani was also the one who invited me to be part of Famished Arabia, a group of food bloggers here in GCC. Such an angel! You can find links of fellow famished bloggers on my links. I attended my first activity last Friday a Group Photo share and learn session at Bakers and Spice which also was a host to a weekly Farmers Market which sells organic produce.
V was a breastfed baby and along with that decision is a challenge to only feed him the healthiest meal we can provide (with a few sweet cheat). When the doctor gave me a go signal that he can start solid food he had homecooked and organic baby food.
V at 1 yr old ate every vegetable I give him but when he reached the age of 2 everything suddenly change. He became choosy and right now only eats broccoli, carrots and mushroom without force and with fruits oranges, strawberries, and banana are his only chosen “sports candy”. I have to be creative in tricking him to eat unwanted veggies and fruits.
That’s why when he saw me preparing my staple side dish he announced “that’s your food mama not for Vierte.” I bought this juicy tomatoes and cucumber at the market which tastes much sweeter than those I buy at the grocery. Live chickens and ducks are also available in the market as well.
This salad is best paired with something grilled or fried. I baked some pork liempo marinated with dark soy sauce, kikoman soy, tomato ketchup, sugar and ground black pepper.
