Gourmet... Baby Style.

My little man baby just started eating food.
Actually, he's tasted it...
he's not quite sure if he's ready to fully jump in that boat.

I was excited for this stage again
because it gives me yet another outlet
to get creative.
I made all of the little ladies food when 
they arrived at this stage
and plan on doing it for this little guy as well.
The health benefits, the savings,
everything is a plus in my book!

Here is documentation of the first bite ever.
It was on Christmas Eve at Grandpa's house.

"Uh, what is this in my mouth?"
So, for his first set of meals
he's been feasting on
Roasted Carrots and Baked Apples
and Whipped Sweet Potatoes
(doesn't that sound so much fancier than
carrots, apples, and sweet potatoes??
Yes, it does.
And we like to fancy things up
any opportunity we get.).

This took me maybe 45 minutes one afternoon.
I already had all the ingredients;
so this cost me...
let's see...
oh, nothing.
I always like the sound of paying nothing
and getting exactly what I want.

Basically, I just roasted some carrots;
baked some apples;
and baked a sweet potato.
Once these were fully softened,
I added the carrots and apples to a blender
and pureed them adding a little bit of water
until they came to a nice smooth blend.
I did the same with the sweet potato.
Once pureed,
I poured the mixtures into an ice cube tray
and set aside in the freezer until completely frozen.
Once frozen,
I popped them out of the tray and put them in a bag.

(or Wha La... 
for those who don't fancy things up with French
every now and then.)

Okay, friends,
I've been working on some ways to implement some
around here.
Hopefully, I live through it and can tell you all about it!
Until then...


  1. You should sell it!!

  2. That was one of Kitty's favorite combinations! I used olive oil instead of water to give her some extra calories...but she started solids kinda late :)
