I have been wanting to make homemade baby food for Punkie. I have looked on the internet and even bought this book last week. The internet was a little overwhelming with just too much information ~ I need a quick easy read. The book I purchased had tons of recipes but had more ingredients than our family meals. So, I decided to just throw some boiled frozen carrots in the food processor with a little water. Put it in ice cube trays and froze it. Yesterday, I mixed it with a little oatmeal and served it for lunch. He loved it! And mommy felt like a better mom, assuring myself that I was providing a nutritional meal for my angel. (: So, last evening, I decided to be Betty Homemaker again. Stop laughing! First, I dropped the stupid food processor and spent about 30 min trying to make it work. Finally realizing it was TRASH! So, plan #2, I have a blender. I had a little bit of broccoli left over from dinner the night before so I purreed it and did the ice cube process. What a great way to use leftovers!!!! I must admit it was a beautiful green color. Then, I decided to make applesauce. I boiled the apples, and threw it in the blender with the water left-over from the pot. It came out perfect, too. Feeling on top of the world that I accomplished #101 on my 101 things to-do list, I was ready to serve Punkie his dinner. Early of course, he shouldn’t have to wait to eat this hearty concoction that I prepared. He adored the oatmeal with the applesauce. Well, he loved it so much, he wanted more. Wanting him to have a balanced diet, I served him the broccoli. He hated it! He was gagging! Betty Homemaker bubble was busted! ): I thought maybe it was the consistency ~ Nope! No Broccoli for my Punkie. But, he loved the homemade carrots and applesauce!!!! So, Betty Homemaker want-a-be didn’t completely fail. Right!!!!!
