Baby's first home made food
I know this is a simple task, but I am so proud of myself. I made my first batch of home made baby food. Devon was going pretty slowily through the store bought stuff at first, but he is now chowing through a couple of jars a day and I realized that this whole jars-of-ready-made-baby-food thing could get pricy. So I found a bag of peas in the freezer, steamed them, mashed them, added some water and voila .... baby peas. I will keep some fresh in the fridge for tomorrow, but the rest I will freeze. The tray is divided into 2 oz. compartments. You just freeze, pop them into a zip lock bag, thaw and eat. Now all I have to do is get him to eat them. I also did corn and I think that worked out even better as far as getting the right consistency goes. It was a really quick and easy process and I feel good knowing that I am giving baby D pure, fresh food. It is also a great way to easily expand his palate beyond what is available at the store by doing things like asparagus, avacados, and watermelon.
Yes ... that's a tie on his onesie.
