Baking is a Science, Cooking is an Art

You know how they say that baking is a science and cooking is an art.

Well if that’s the case, then Sophie’s bowl is my new canvas.

Last weekend when I went to the market, I saw this at the yong tau fu stall.

I know, how cute right? Needless to say, I bought some of these fishcake hoping that they will whet Sophie’s appetite.

When it comes to meal times, Sophie can be an angel or a terror. These days, we struggle quite a bit with those terror days. Back when she was learning to self feed at around one year old, she used to be so interested in feeding herself that it didn’t matter what was being  served to her. Vegetables, meat, rice, noodles, she’ll finish it up as she was more keen to practice her feeding skills.

These days, meal times are not as enticing for her and she’ll rather get down from her high chair or turn into a fussy eater and fish out her vegetables and tell me, “Vege for you mama.” Nice try, nice try.

Her response for the fish cakes turned out better than I expected (although she was not so keen on the bear). I saved the stars for another meal and hopefully, she’ll get a star for her good meal time behavior too.

I must say that the manufacturer of these fish cakes sure knows their way to a kids’ tummy. If you do know of other places that sell these character fish cake, do let me know so that I can add more variety to Sophie’s meals. If you’re interested to buy this for your fussy eaters , you can get it from the Bendemeer market’s yong tau fu stall.

    Where did you buy the pig head design from? Yeah I think it’s the mummy who is more excited than the kids.

      Joyce, after I blogged about it a few mummies also told me they’ve seen other designs before. While they may not taste as good as it looks, it sure makes the meal more appetizing 🙂

    Grrr…I remember those terror-some days when Vera was bent on engaging us in battle at the dining table at least once a day. I remember tearing some hair out. Some days, I could be in control, and just be nonchalant until little miss picky decides to cooperate. Other days, I would go nuts, and it’ll end up tears all around.
    BUT, amazingly enough, as suddenly as it comes, it goes. So I hope for Sophie, this phase passes soon. Meanwhile, your creativity in food surely comes in handy. =)
