Years and years ago when Ms. Serious, who is now 12 years old, was a baby I made my first attempt at making baby food for her. Oh my goodness did I mess it up! I know, I know. Not my finest moment as a chef or mom, but dang it, I tried! LOL
I was completely clueless, and she kept gagging on the chunks that were in my not-so-great homemade baby food. I hang my head in shame just thinking about it.
As we had more children I moved up the baby food chain from regular jars of baby food to organic baby food.
Now I am feeling like I need to tackle that homemade baby food dream again.
A little research showed me just how cost effective it is, as well as how healthy it can be for baby. The fresher the food the more vitamins and minerals it has. That is what I am looking for. Saving money and giving my babies the healthiest start in life I can.
Ms. Dimples is now 11 weeks old, and I have decided to find out how to properly make our own baby food, other than from my b**bs. *grin* I want to be a pro and ready to go when I am ready to start feeding her solids.
Oh the yumminess of fresh fruits for Ms. Dimples to enjoy!
And how about those delectable veggies!
