Baby Food

Mmmmm….pears.

Is it bad that I want to steal food from my 7 month old daughter? It can’t be bad, can it? Those pears are just so good!

Making baby food really isn’t that bad when it turns out so good. Pear puree = delicious. Who knew that pears cooked in a little water and then blended up could be so so nummy? Babies, that’s who.

Carrots get the same treatment. Also good. Roasted sweet potatoes pureed with a little water? Yes, please. Although I’m afraid I must revert to my childhood ways and say, “Dem peas is nasty. Bleck.”

My Gramma Jane got me this great “how-to” baby food book.

And even if the basic recipes are just “cook veggie, puree with water” it has some great big kid recipes too. Not sure I’ll be making “pan-roasted salmon  with lentils, rice, french beans, and spinach pesto” anytime soon…but hey, a girl can dream, right?

If you’re not making your own baby food, good for you. You may actually have some free time to take a shower. If you are making your own baby, even good-er for you. Just make sure you don’t eat it all.

      Pears are definitely her favorite right now. Sweet potatoes are second, and bananas are dead last. Silly baby.

    bananas last? wow, that’s a big surprise, usually that’s an easy favorite…I liked it myself every time I fed this to my babies 🙂

      I know, everyone is surprised that she doesn’t love bananas. What can I say, the child likes to be different… 🙂
