Now that Sam has started eating big boy food (read: food so liquified it’s unrecognizable), I have started making baby food. My mom got us this handy dandy baby food cooker/steamer/blender called the Beaba Babycook. Apparently, it’s all the rage in Europe, according to the world wide web. I made Sam’s peas the other day, enough for his meal that night, as well as about nine ice cubes worth that are now frozen in the fridge. Just pop one out and voila! a veggie to go with his rice cereal!
I thought that it was going to be a much bigger deal to make my own baby food, but it’s actually extremely easy. This little Beaba thingie is perfect. I don’t know if I will make the fruits this way, since it’s harder to get things in season and I can’t imagine cooking apricots in that thing. But we’ll see. I feel a little like Caroline Ingalls making my own baby food — except for the appliance and electricity thing.
P.S. For a list of Sam’s first foods and reactions, see the new page in the upper right hand corner! Tonight was avocado — a gigantic hit!
