My nephew loved this porridge... 
 
Baby-food Porridge 
 
1/4 cup  cooked jasmine rice (very soft and mushy)
  water
2 Tbsp  cooked lentils (very soft and mushy)
1 clove  garlic
1/4 tsp  turmeric
  a few seeds of cumin
1/2 tsp  butter
1 Tbsp  cooked carrots (very soft and mushy)
1 Tbsp  cooked peas (very soft and mushy)
 
Cook rice in 1:2 proportions. 1 part rice, 2 parts water. You will need 
to cook it a little longer to get it to a mushy consistency. 
Cook 1/2 cup red lentils with 1 clove garlic, 1/4 tsp. turmeric and a few 
seeds of cumin until very, very soft. It may need about 1 and 1/2 cups 
water. Do not throw away liquid, use it to make the porridge. 
Cook carrots and peas either individually or together until really soft 
and pulpy. 
When you are ready to feed baby, mix a combination of rice, lentils, 
carrots, peas, butter and salt. Use discretion about the amount. 
The same thing could be done with spinach. Cook only the leaves until 
soft and follow the same instructions. 
 
I hope this is helpful. This by the way is (if it is not obvious already) 
a well balanced meal. 
 
Good Luck!

bear rump roast 
 
suitable for a young animal. saddle or leg could also be used. 
cut one clove of garlic into small slivers, insert in gashes in the 
roast, season with salt and freshly ground pepper. lard or tie with 
bacon or fat pork (adjust salt if you are using bacon). roast uncovered 
at 325f for 35 to 45 minutes per pound, with just enough beef bouillon 
or red wine to cover the bottom of the roasting pan. baste frequently 
with the pan juices, serve with noodles and currant or wild blueberry 
jelly. or make the gravy with currant jelly added to it. 
 
 
 
barbecued bear leg 
 
spit the bear leg and roast over deep bed of coals in a pit. be sure 
you're on sandy or clay soil, not humus or root-filled soil, especially 
where shallow-rooted evergreens are present. the fire in your cooking 
pit could start such roots smoldering and the results are disastrous. to 
get back to your bear - baste frequently with your favorite barbecue 
sauce, made in rather large quantities, for this will be a fairly 
lengthy procedure. remember that bear must be well done - the time. of 
course, will not depend not only on the bear's size, but on your fire. 
 
 
roast saddle of bear 
 
1 cup  cider
2 Tbsp  soy sauce
1 tsp  ginger
1 Tbsp  lemon juice
2 Tbsp  honey
 
combine liquids 
season with salt and pepper and then lard a saddle of bear. pour over 
the combined liquids and roast as directed for bear rump roast, basting 
with the pan juices. 
 
 
 
simple bear roast 
 
brown a 2 - 3 pound bear roast in a dutch oven, searing it on all sides. 
remove oven from heat and allow to cool before adding water. mix one 
lipton onion soup mix and one cup water to make a paste. put paste on 
top of the roast and add another cup of water to bottom of oven, peal 
and cut up 6 - 8 carrots and add to oven. cook on fire or burner hot 
enough to make a wisp of steam come from lid every 10 - 15 seconds for 2 
- 3 hours. if fire is hotter than that, monitor water closely. it'll 
taste just like beef.

"since my wife tasted bear she would rather i hunt bear than deer." 
a few general rules when cooking with bear: 
when cooking to well-done, a meat thermometer reads l90 f. 
when well-done meat is pierced with a fork, the juices should run clear, 
not pink. 
generally use dry cooking s for tender, fat bear and moist cooking 
s and/or marinades for older, stringy bears, although marinades 
may be used for any bear. 
if you feel the bear is a bit gamey and/or tough, soak for 24 hours in a 
solution of 1 tablespoon salt and 1 tablespoon vinegar to 1 quart of 
water.
