Tuesday I made baby food for another month. My little guy has a voracious appetite and we are going through the “cubes” a lot faster than I anticipated. Luckily, that means he is drinking fewer and fewer bottles so we are not spending as much on formula. However, even though we will be buying less formula, with two growing boys our grocery bill will not be going down anytime soon!
Wild Rice Cereal – See March post
Green Bean and Pea Puree
2 cans of green beans
1 can of peas
Drain both cans of green beans and pour into blender or food processor. Add the undrained can of peas and blend until it is a puree.
I tried to make just a pea puree but Jake made an awful face and it was a bit watery so I combined it with the green beans and he seems to like it.
Carrot and Apple Puree
3-4 carrots, peeled and cut into pieces
1 apple peeled and cored
Cook apple and carrots until soft. I cooked the carrots in the microwave and saved the juice for the rice cereal. I also cooked the apple in the microwave. Throw it all in a blender or food processor until it is a puree. Divide into ice-cube trays and freeze. Voila!
