As a father of a half Japanese child as well, sushi and any other kind of fish are up on the list, but I think we'll hold off on the seafood to make sure she doesn't get any allergies; for a kid who may someday live in Japan, being allergic to seafood would be even worse than my own allergy to soybean products (via a deadly peanut allergy, apparently).

Ditto on strawberries; I can't think of a more perfect fruit... my wife and I also love fresh oranges; I could eat 3-4 a day if I could get away with it. (Again, citrus is apparently one to take care with; allergies abound)

Actually, I love anything sour, and apparently citric and other acids are incredibly good for your health, so stuff like lemons, limes, and of course the balsamic vinegar we get in Little Italy with a real cork in it will soon work their way in to the munchkins first solid food meals, I suspect.

The other one I really can't wait for is garlic; no child of mine will go more than two days without garlic. Mom comes from a culture that values light seasoning, and I love a good simple Japanese meal with the best of them, but I can't wait to teach our daughter the delight of a good garlicky plate of pasta, or kimchee, or my mom's home made pickles...

By the way, I stumbled across a nice resource on introducing solid foods a few months back on the Canadian website of Danone, the company that makes Dannon yogurt, Evian water, etc. It's the most detailed explanation of what to introduce when, and it doesn't seem to plug their products unnecessarily:

Obviously, you might want to add a couple months to the start date if you plan on breastfeeding exclusively until 6 months...

While I completely agree with you on the pizza, for my little Chickpea (due in 20 weeks), there is but one food that occupies the top spot on the food pryamid. A food so great, that the gods surely feast on it whenever possible. In fact, in the entire pantheon of great foods, this is the undisputed heavy weight king of greatness. Two words: FRENCH FRIES.

I can't remember any foods that I specifically looked forward to introducing, just all foods in general, and with no predujice! Example - I hate cooked broccoli (but love it raw, go figure) but couldn't wait to cook some up for the kids!

But nothing beats the memory of the kids' ice cream cone! Sure the kids had ice cream, but eating it from a cone is a fabulous experience (if very messy with kids)

Oddly enough but a few of my childhood faves were, liver and onions, chicken livers and gizzards. Strange for someone living in Chicago I suppose.
Quick treat of the day: Tomato bread. French bread sliced in half (toast it a sec in your broiler), little bit of vinegarette dressing, slice of provolone cheese, sliced tomatos with a little oregano. Takes 2 mins. MMMmmMMM.
BTW, love your blog!

My kids just LOVE their fruit. Strawberries. Blueberries. Raspberries. Bananas. Grapes. Yummy! They also both adore pizza and pasta and steamed rice. I just wish they'd eat more veggies!

When my son started eating solid foods, I made everything from fresh food with my mixer. He is a wonderful eater to this day, and one of the only kids in the neighborhood who actually eats fruits and all vegetables! Just remember to keep a camera at hand when you start introducing the flavors! You'll get some of the best pictures of the most precious facial expressions ever! Memories to keep forever!

My son absolutely LOVES any kind of fruit and for the most part hates veggies. He's 8 mo. old so we're still working on the intro to most foods. But for now I have to mix veggies with a hefty serving of fruit to make him eat it. Gradually i reduce the amount of fruit until he's eating only the veggie. The facial expressions are pretty priceless....especially with peas!

Salsa. Salsa is a joy of my life and it would be great if Liberty shared that joy. How fun will it be to sit up late into the night and discuss life, the universe and great music over a bowl of salsa and corn chips!!

Please oh Please like salsa.....
