Peas & Carrots

Over the past couple months, we’ve been building Cailyn’s repertoire of solid foods. Tonight I decided it was finally time to bust out the Magic Bullet and get some pureed veggies stocked up in the freezer.

I did it the easy way and started with frozen veggies from the grocery store. Threw them in a pot on the stove with a steamer basket. Saved some of the water they cooked in to add to the veggies while they pureed. Sam manned the Magic Bullet (his favorite kitchen tool.) We ended up with a batch each of carrots, peas, and green beans in less than an hour!

They look SO much more appetizing than the store-bought jars! I LOVE how green the peas are. They were a hit with Cailyn too (which is more than I can say for the store-bought):

Yes, she did a face-dive into her dinner.

Can I just say that this girl is going to be a heart-breaker?

Oh… and I made these too:

    So glad you are doing so much more than I ever did with making homemade baby food. And if you need more white or brown chocolate bark, let me know. We still have a lot! Love, Mom

  2. I can’t wait to start making baby food! :)

    Those little containers are perfect. You just store them in the freezer and defrost them in the fridge when you need them?

      I meant to include in the post: the containers are from Babies R Us, it’s their Especially for Babies brand. You can buy the specially made labels for them, too.
      And yep, they freeze and are dishwasher and microwave-safe, too.
