I woke up this morning and Donald Trump is President… Didn’t see that one coming. I thought about writing what I think about this turn of events, but instead I’m going to sum up how I’m feeling with this gif:


So… turn up the music, pour yourself a cocktail and get on with life. Once you’ve sobered up, you may need to feed yourself and your children, so to help you out I am continuing with my Baby Finger Food series, enjoy:

At some point I will have to face teaching my boys to use a spoon, but if they’re anything like my daughter they will be determined to pick up whatever I serve them for some time. So for now I’m keeping things tidy and continue to come up with recipes they will enjoy that introduce new flavours, just like these juicy pork and apple burgers.

pork and apple burgers

Although the twins are getting the hang of chewing (they have eight teeth now!), many meats are still hard work. Minced meat is not only easy to chew but is easy to mix in with other ingredients to make a  moist patty. And my new herb to tickle their taste buds is tarragon… one of my personal favourites.

Pork & Apple Burgers with Tarragon
Yields 16
Juicy finger food for Baby, or garnish in a bun for the rest of the family, delicious!

  1. This is super helpful stuff….particularly for those with tiny kids! I could never find any kind of meat product for my kids when they were toddlers that was at all palatable. And now, they resist the idea of meat (a *horrible* thing to my husband and me – total carnivores).

    I am going to give this a whirl and see if I can turn this whole meat thing around! Thank you. πŸ™‚

  2. Good morning Katherine, the title of your post did make me chuckle. It could probably be classed as an insult, not to Trump though… Time will tell!

    Your pork apple burgers sound so tasty, and the days of keeping baby food bland are well and truly over. The more tastes children are introduced to whilst young the wider their taste preferences (or so I believe)… And food does taste so much better when eaten with fingers!

    Thank you for linking up to the #MMBC.


  3. Love the gif. This series is good. I babyles my son and it’s amazing what he can eat. I didn’t really make much for him specially though and he tends to just eat what we eat which is fab! Thanks for linking up to #familyfun

  4. Ha yep I think that gif speaks for many! Those burgers look great I’d certainly like to try them with my two, I love giving them home cooked food l. Thanks for sharing at #familyfun xx
