WE EAT | Hard Boiled Eggs & Broccoli Fries

I'm all for trying new foods.  
I typically leave new food intros to just once or twice a week.  
Attempting to keep Parker and Jolie interested in meal times and not totally dreading it. 

It is on the rare occasion that I'll leave a 'new food' to Jordan while on 'dad-duty'.

It was this day that he hadn't a clue what he was getting into.  

Hard Boiled Eggs
Broccoli Fries (found here)
Whole Wheat English Muffins

Boiling eggs not your forte? Me either. Thats why I left this task to Jordan.  

  1. How to Boil the Perfect Egg
  2. Place the eggs in a large pot and cover with cold water.  Bring the water and eggs to a boil and then turn off the heat.  Allow the eggs to remain in the hot water for 12 minutes.  Poor off the hot water and cover eggs with cold water and a handful of ice (this stops the cooking process). 
  3. Drain, cool and serve.
If I may make a quick note: Babies under the age of one shouldn't have the egg whites due to possible allergies.  You can offer egg yolks to babies around 9 months of age.

"How did they do at lunch today?" 
"Good!"
"Really?  They ate the eggs?" 
"Yep." 

Of course they did.  It is Jordan feeding them. They always do the miraculous for Dad.  
Wait, I'm the only one? 
And of course he took pictures.  "I figured you would want pictures for the blog.."

Good boy.
They were digging the broccoli fries, too

Proof.  They ate the hard boiled eggs.



The only evidence that there was a grain on their tray.. a tiny sliver of English Muffin.  

They love the carbs.
..and apparently hard boiled eggs.
