Last night I tried making baby food puree for the first time. We decided to start with sweet potatoes. I’m pretty sure it turns out he actually had yams….I couldn’t tell at Winco which was which. After looking at pictures of yams and sweet potatoes online….I think I bought a yam. But…a yam is just a type of sweet potato anyway so it doesn’t matter.
Anyway….I peeled, washed, and diced the sweet potato…and proceeded to try to steam it. I accidentally burned it. Nathan claims I set the house on fire, but it was more like a stinky burn smell with a little haze of smoke. The smoke detectors didn’t even go off so it wasn’t that bad. I had to start over.
It turns out that making baby food took a lot longer than I had planned. I made seven servings worth of sweet potatoes by the end of the evening. I think I will need one of those miracle dicers or whatever they are called from Pampered Chef as well as a food processor to mash the food since mashing it by hand also took awhile.
So tonight Elias got to try my creation for the first time. He definitely ate some. I don’t think he hated it…but he eats so little from the spoon right now it is hard to tell. He opened his mouth for more a couple of times so I’ll call it a success.
In a few days he’ll get to try zucchini….at least that is what I’m thinking now.
