busy...

I have been busy. busy. busy.
With work, with Rowan, with couponing, with life...
and baby food making.

While I was pregnant I talked about wanting to make
Rowan's baby food.
Well, then he turned five months old and it was time
to start introducing foods...and I hadn't made a single thing.
Or even thought about it...
I mean really it just totally sneaked up on me...

So I was determined not to let the time totally pass by.
So a few weeks ago I started researching the process.
I found out that it is really simple, really healthy,
and really economical.

So far I have made avocados, pears, applesauce, sweet
potatoes and bananas.

And I really enjoy it.

And so does Rowan.

I freeze the food in ice cube trays.
Then pop them out and store them in ziploc bags in the freezer.
The night before I take out what he will
eat for breakfast and lunch.
I put the cubes in recycled baby food jars (from the foods
I am not making) and then they go into the fridge.
By mealtime the next day they are thawed
and ready to eat.
