Adventures in Baby Food making: Squash

Today my sister, baby A, and I made a trip down to the local Farmer's Market. It was super windy, so there weren't many vendors there, but we still got plenty of yummy food to make for baby A.

We had such a great time preparing everything!

I love this picture! Baby A is really showing signs of being ready for food!!

When all was said and done, we had made 1/2 bag of rice for rice cereal(I had no clue that you could actually make this!), one acorn squash, two butternut squash, a pie pumpkin, and two rutabagas. (Seriously, thanks to my sister for suggesting this while at the Farmer's Market. I would have never thought of that being a baby food!)

We had a great time! I can't wait to see how baby A likes it all. We made a ton, and I'm working on freezing it all now. I'm putting into ice cube trays and then storing them in freezer bags. I hope baby A likes squash!

Up next, green veggies! (green beans? peas? Who knows. I'll just have to see what looks good at the grocery store. I should have done these this summer when they were in season. Oh well. Live and learn) :)

  8. Following you from the Hop. Hope to see you return the favor. Great blog. Awesome ideas for baby food

  9. You know, we used a Magic Bullet, so after we blended the baby food it went straight into the storage container. With our second child I went on Freecycle and asked for babyfood jars to store daily food in!! I am a new follower and I would love a follow back!!

  10. I made all of my daughter's baby food, and we both loved it! The only reason I haven't with my second (now 8 months) is that we've been through so many major transitions recently that I've been too overwhelmed. Hopefully I'll start in soon. I'm a new follower from the almost Friday hop!

  11. Hi, I'm a new follower! I found you from the It's Almost Friday Hop! :)

    This is inspiring to see! My little guy is 5 months so we'll be starting solids next month. He is SO ready, stares people down while their eating and steals food off plates when they get within his reach, LOL. I'd love it if you shared where you got your recipe for making the rice cereal too.
