Homemade Baby Food - Peas!!!
Joshua is about 5 months old, time to start baby food! I love making homemade baby food, and find it strangely addicting. First up was peas! I started with a bag of frozen peas. I don't like to use canned vegetables because they usually have added sugar and salt. (Fresh is great too) I put about an inch of water in a pot and cooked them with the lid on. I think it took about 10 minutes. Then I dumped the entire pot, water and all, into the blender.
It pureed up quickly. (Be careful because it's still really hot!) After it was pureed, I spooned it into ice cube trays to be frozen for later. Once it's frozen, I will pop them out and put them in a zip top bag in the freezer. Then it will be easy to just grab a few cubes and thaw them when I need it.
Joshua wasn't as excited about his peas. I was trying to feed him and take a picture at the same time, so I missed his first face, which was much funnier!
