Homemade Baby Food

This weekend was filled with food. Saturday morning was spent shopping with Nathan. First we stopped at my favorite farm stand to pick up about 80% of the produce on the list (gotta love summertime!). Next, we went to Sharp Shopper which is our local discount grocer. Then finally, to the regular grocery store for the rest of the goodies.

On the menu this weekend, tons of baby food.

Of course I cooked for us too but I spent a good bit of time in the kitchen with the Magic Bullet. If you are going to attempt making your own baby food, I highly recommend this blender. I was lucky enough to get one second hand from a friend but if you pick one up in the store it will run you $50 or so. But do the math, I spent $1 on frozen peas which made 8 baby servings. Compare to $.69 per serving of store bought peas. The blender pays itself off rather quickly!

And then the big people had meatball sandwiches. Mmmmmm, tasty!!!
