Before I ever got pregnant I had a huge interest in making baby food for my babies when I had them. I just thought it was a good way to save money and have full confidence in what I am feeding them. Well, when B first started eating solid I gave it a go and was disappointed when the food processor left all of the food very lumpy and it impossible for him to eat. I put my goal aside and chocked it up to my being naive.
Well, I have recently put us on an incredibly tight budget and started rethinking making baby food again. I thought that it might require an investment in a new expensive chopper but my mom just so happened to have a magic bullet sitting unused. She was kind enough to offer it up for our use and it worked wonders on all kinds of food. I chopped up some left over Christmas ham with apples. I did some more ham with some cheesy pasta and peas. I did some left over cheesy pasta with beef and some egg noodles with chicken and cream of chicken with herbs. The consistency was perfect on all of them and I can't wait to try out new foods and let baby taste test them. I am just excited to have accomplished something that I was really wanting to.
