SOOO one of those changes came when I started to THINK about buying baby food again. I have recenly started couponing (another of my bizzaro world moments), and the thought of spending ALL of that money on baby food again made me a little sick to my stomach. That was STEP ONE.
Then I checked THIS book out of the library. It was just sitting on the shelf looking at me. WHY NOT???? It had some good info on making your own baby food, and a good starting point. YOU GUESSED IT....Step 3.
Finally I did some online research and decided. WHY NOT try it. I had fresh veggies and fruits around, so I jumped right in. I started with carrots and apples because that is what I had in my fridge.
Check out these little beauties. That is pure carrot-ey goodness....fresh from the freezer.
It doesn't hurt that it is fresh and I know exactly what is in it, but the main difference is the price. I used 5 carrots and got a whole ice cube tray of puree. That should last us a while since Little E just started eating solids. I also used 5 apples and got 2 trays worth. I am not sure how long the apples will last...Little E SCARFED them down yesterday and again today. I guess I am good at cooking SOMETHING:)
