It’s Monday, again!! Despite the fact that the weekend was only 47 hours long, I still managed to fit in many incredibly delicious things. Over the past few days we have celebrated Birthdays, an Engagement, and a life newly discovered. In the past, I have had my part in creating showers for all three types of events— What I have never done is make baby food. One of my friends, Samya (whom I visited in Florida earlier this year) is a relatively new mother and fellow foodie. As long as I can remember she has looked forward to sharing her love for food with her son. Since he is just 7 months old, he is easing in slowly with foods that are pureed (aka baby food). Samya has quickly mastered the art of making it herself and it here to explain the abc’s of baby food!
Hello! I’m Laura’s dear friend and fellow foodie, Samya 🙂 I recently had a baby boy this past August, Ollie. As a new mommy I was excited about so many things, as all mommies are! But there was something else that got me squealing with joy! I couldn’t wait to feed him!!! I always knew I wanted to make hisbaby food. I make everyone else’s food, why wouldn’t I make some for my favorite person in the world? There is something about giving him fresh homemade meals that just makes my heart happy. Can you tell I’m obsessed with food?
The best part is it freezes wonderfully for an easy meal time. I often make large batches on the weekend and have enough food to last the week! Just add purees to a BPA free ice cube tray, freeze, and transfer to freezer bags. Pretty soon you’ll have a freezer full of brightly colored cubes. I defrost in the microwave (2-3 cubes) and have the perfectly portioned Ollie meal. The food will last for months, but each food is different so do some research to double check.
