Baby food

Last post for tonight, I promise!

I've been making Luke's baby food recently and love doing it! It's fun, easy, cheaper - and he gets to try different foods this way.

So far I've made: bananas (just mash them up), avocado (also just mash them up), green beans, peas, zucchini, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, apples, pears, peaches, and plums.

You steam them, puree them, put them into ice cube trays to freeze, then pop them into bags until you want to use them.

The possibilities are endless. I'm going to start adding in spices soon, and also try some different things that don't typically come in baby food purees - broccoli, cauliflower, etc.

Awesome! Quick question...what do you use to puree? I hope to do this for Annabelle and need to figure out if I need yet another kitchen gadget...:(
