Okay so I am really into this "making my own baby food" kick. Today I made carrots. I tossed a bag of baby carrots in a pot and covered it with water. I let the carrots boil for about an hour (or until softened). Then I drained and rinsed them. I mashed them with a potato masher and added some water. To make them even creamier, I put them in the blender with more water and blended until the consistency of jarred baby food. Then I used a Tbsp scoop and filled 2 ice cube trays. I froze them with some foil covering. Once they freeze, I will put the cubes in a labeled bag (food and date). Then I just pop a cube or two into a bowl and let thaw overnight. It's super easy, super healthy, and super cheap. I think the baby carrots cost about $2.00. For the equivalent amount of packaged baby food, I probably would have spent at least $5-10.
