Baby food making continues. I've got my bearings and it's been super easy. Plus I'm now armed with two new cookbooks (from my sweet friend) so we have some new things to try. A lot of veggies aren't exactly in season in February so I've just been buying frozen organic ones instead. Not as stellar as fresh, but close. Miriam's palette, if you can even call it that, is evolving. We've moved on from plain ole rice cereal to cinnamon apple-banana puree, avacado-banana mush & spinach-peas-pear goodness. Mmmm.
What I've learned: A little banana is good with everything. Some spices are just fine to add. Avacado is a great first food. Label everything you freeze because all the orange food starts to look the same. Canned food is not so hot, but canned pumpkin is good to go. And finally… the pre-made stuff is totally fine too. Mainly because prunes, apricots, purple carrot, and the like are just too complicated for me. Plus in a pinch it's kind of nice just to just squeeze out some food rather than planning to defrost ahead of time. I've been using Plum Baby and it's great, but mainly I love the packaging. And these sites are full of good info : wholesome baby & weelicious
Next up is cheese, yogurt, and meat. Though on second thought the idea of pureeing meat makes me want to gag. May hold off on that for a bit!
