Mmmmm…..Cheesetina. Even better than X-Tina and definitely not as dirty. (Sorry, that was terrible. Well, it’s not like I didn’t warn you about my sense of humor.)

(Editor’s note: The above nonsense was a thinly veiled excuse for me to practice my cool new html skillz. Whut whut?)

Um…anyhoo…It’s basically baby food mac and cheese.

4oz Pastina….(if you have organic or whole wheat pastina, that’s fantastic, but I have yet to find it anywhere.)
2oz shredded (organic) shredded cheddar cheese
1oz breast milk OR 1 scoop powdered formula (optional)

Cook pastina in boiling water (no salt) until very tender; about 6-7 minutes. Drain well and return to the pot.
Add breast milk or powdered formula; stir. (Again, optional. It does make it creamier, though.)
Add shredded cheese and stir until well blended.

Despite the fact that Owen doesn’t really care for it (eh, he’s just a baby, what does he know?) I happen to think this is a great little recipe. The best thing about it is that it makes a nice base for other foods, particularly strong tasting green vegetables like broccoli and spinach.

I would consider this to be a Stage 3 food, although if you puree it, it could easily work as a Stage 2 food.
