Veggies


Alright for all of you with the itty-bitty ones, I found a new trick for getting mine to eat veggies! He was doing really good eating whatever I gave him and then he decided to turn picky. I am not buying baby food anymore so to get veggies in, I bought a bag of frozen mixed veggies. You can even get a huge Organic bag at Costco for a reasonable price. Cook them however you normally would, my lazy self puts them in my Pampered Chef Black Microwave Bowl thingamajig, and pops them in the microwave. After you get them cooked, pour a can of cream of chicken soup over it. Puree to whatever texture stage your little one is at and then pour them into ice cube trays. Freeze and then you can pop out however many cubes you might need when it is feeding time. Mine takes three cubes for example. You might need to run a little warm water over the bottom of the tray so that it doesn't crack. Ryder devours it and I think the Cream of Chicken is the key. Anyway, just thought I'd pass this tid bit along and hopefully it will help if any of you are in the same boat! Remember you'll need ice cube trays and a food processor/blender/puree tool! Also, in light of my blog yesterday regarding dinner, I think I am going to start posting my dinner recipes on the nights I get dinner accomplished! Fresh ideas are always good! Happy Veggie Making!

I will definitely use the veggie tip! Trevor has become picky when it comes to veggies...so much so that I resorted back to buying jarred veggies (because for some reason, he found those agreeable?!?) Anyway- I'm thinking cream of chicken may help! (So1me one has arrived at the comptuE1 to help me type!) LOL! gotta go!
