For this Tackle it Tuesday I thought I would share about how I make baby food. With this baby it has been quite the adventure. I have always made my own baby food. I made some for Tasha for the first time a couple of months ago well she gaged and spit and practically had convulsions (not seriously). So after two days of this I decided to buy her some baby food. She gobbled it up no problem!!! I couldn't belive it because it the taste did not compare to homemade. It was quick, easy and convienent. But then I figured out what it would cost per month!!!! Over $30-45. So back to the making of the baby food. She is doing better but still spitting it out some.
So here is a quick, easy way to make baby food.
We have excellent water-less cookware so I cook vegetables together with just a tad bit of water.
Once cooked I put it in my bamix cup
Mash till pureed
Put in ice cube trays to freeze. Once frozen place in a quart size freezer bag and take out one as needed.
I then heat it on the stove in a pan in an egg cup. (I didn't get a picture of this)
Less than 45 minutes I was able to make a tray of green beans, peas, carrots, and summer squash. A bag of frozen green beans is only .96 cents and will feed her for 14 meals. ( I still buy fruit baby food and feed one or half of one of those with a veggie). It is a pretty big savings!
