Earth Mom

So, I have always been prone to think "Why do it yourself when you can buy it already done?"... After attending a New Mom's Class at church, I decided that when the time came, I was going to give homemade baby food a try! I will admit that I wimped out, but many of the other moms gave the store bought food a try and then tasted the homemade stuff - All exclaiming that the homemade baby food tasted better. Yesterday morning I cooked up some green beans and gave them a blend with a hand blender! I felt like such an earth mom! :) The following post shares a video and picture of how Riley enjoyed(or didn't) her lunch!

I found the food processor really great for making baby food. I would steam up a ton of everything once every 4-6 weeks and then freeze it in ice cube trays. Pop them into a freezer bag when they're frozen and you have ready to eat food for a month or so.
www.wholesomebabyfood.com is a great resource if you're looking for recipes or ideas.
I made Corbin's food from 4-8 months. Then I found an awesome Target coupon and was able to stock up on a couple months worth of jarred food for like $30.
By the time that was gone, he was ready for table foods.
