Fun Food Friday
It is Fun Food Friday. Bina is still learning about different tastes. Exposing her to a variety of flavors is important to us. I decided to make her baby food myself. It, truthfully, seemed like the natural course to take. I also love to buy produce, especially since I can find lots of local varieties and many "Product of U.S.A." labels. Good to know we can support local farmers and the good work they do.
Making baby food turns out to be much simpler than I expected. This is a picture of homemade apples. I peel the apples, cut them into small pieces and put them in the microwave oven for about three minutes. Then I mash them with a fork. This is what they look like.
I actually make a list of what foods she will be eating for two weeks, like a menu. I make the food all at once. While one is freezing, I make the other. Once the cubes are frozen, I put them in a resealable freezer bag and mark them with the type of food inside and the date they were made. The process facilitates having to think about what to feed her. Grab a cube, heat it up and enjoy watching her try something new.
