First of all, if you only stop by here for the Brag About Friday post every week, then you might want to go back and catch up on this week. I posted some videos of the kids and told a little ditty about sweet Zachary this morning as well. I am trying to post more during the week and not do a marathon post on Friday since it takes me so long to complete it. This one even took me 4 hours to do in between everything.
Ok so onto the bragging...
Guess who is making baby food?? Yep, that would be me!
The Magic Bullet off Ebay and it works so well for what I need.
I steam the veggies for a little bit in my steamer, then I put the veggies in the bullet with a little of the water that collected at the bottom of my pan. I love how I can make it super smooth with more water or a bit more chunky. Then I spoon the puree into ice cube trays to freeze. Today I will take them out and put them into labeled baggies to use on a daily basis.
So far I have pureed avocados, sweet potatoes, bananas, carrots, and a butternut squash (which I really had to try hard not eat myself, yummy!!). Today I will puree spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, blueberries, squash, peas, and I may try some chicken and rice. I got my recipes from Annabel Karmel and Wholesome Baby Food.
I am also following the advice of Deceptively Delicious and The Sneaky Chef. I will be putting cubes of veggies into my spaghetti, mashed potatoes, and just about everything I can get away with. My honey only likes a few veggies so hopefully I can sneak some nutrition in :-)
