Buttercup's favorite thing about baby-led solids is getting to eat Mommy and Daddy's favorite foods. She has been initiated into the wonderful world of Gjetost cheese. Gjetost cheese (called "brown cheese" by Norwegians) is a special treat in our family. We eat it on Christmas morning with homemade cardamom buns. In a word, it is amazing. It's made from caramelized goat's milk and is really rich, creamy, sweet with a bit of sharpness. I picked some up recently to celebrate Hubby's new job, and we engaged in some brown cheese family joy on Saturday morning.
I handed Buttercup little pieces of it off my plate since we were all sitting on the couch together. My faithful readers will remember that Buttercup has had some weird reactions to cow's cheese (see here and here for details). I'm happy to report that goat cheese was quite kind to her little system, which is a good thing because she looooooooved it.
PROS: a yummy treat
