The Solid Life

Call me a hippi, granola, or maybe crazy, but I have decided to take on the task of making baby food. Why you ask? 1. So I can do my part saving money. (One jar of baby food $.79; 1 sweet potato $.89 which makes a whole ice cube tray. Myers eats 2 cubes per meal. You do the math.) 2. More nutrients in homeade baby food. Anyway, it really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Actually it was easy. Jordan Elkins gave me a really good website to get recipes from. It's It gives great details about which solids to introduce at what age. Even if you don't want to make all your baby food, there are still foods you can make for snacks and things. So, last Saturday I went to the farmer's market and bought sweet potatoes,green beans, butternut and acron squash, apples, pears, and avacados. It took me a long time (mainly because I had to entertain a 4 month old), but here are the results.
