So, last weekend when I went to the grocery store I picked up some squash and sweet potatoes to see what I could do. I baked the sweet potatoes today and put my little mini food processor to good use. I pureed them with water to a consistency that was a little thicker than the stage 1 foods we've been buying, but was still really, really runny. I got enough to freeze two ice trays full and keep a few servings in the fridge for today and tomorrow. I was so proud of myself. Yes, my kitchen was a wreck (while our dishwasher is out of commission). Yes, my little food processor was about to start smoking. Yes, it took forever. But, I was so excited to have finally taken on this task I'd planned for so long.
After I nursed her for her 4:45 feeding, we sat down to try some. I even added a little cinnamon to it, because I read today that it's an okay idea to add a little spice to baby's foods to give them new food experiences. Below, you'll see how our first meal of homemade baby food went!
