Yes, I'm officially an over-achiever! Guess what I did today? MADE BABY FOOD! That's right. Never felt the need to make it for Zoe. Never felt the need to make it for Ty. Now, I have 3 nine-month olds (days away from being ten-month olds), so I made baby food. Okay, so really GOD made it, I just mashed it up.
A few of the "Super Mom's" (like Helen) that I'm in a Yahoo group with (we all have triplets born within 6 months of each other) have me convinced that it's not really that much work. So I decided to give it a go.
I started with the basics: Pears, Avocado, Bananas, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Peas & Green Beans. Not a big investment. All things, should I wimp out of making baby food, that could be eaten by adults.
Today, a few of the bananas started looking like they were about to mash themselves, so I grabbed my bowl and garbage bin, and started peeling. 30 minutes later, all the pears, avocados & bananas were in my freezer. Seriously, it was THAT easy! I ran out of ice cube trays, so had to wait to start on the veggies. (Wait, are Avocados veggies?)
So the Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Peas & Green Beans were JUST as easy as the fruits. I'm not sure I'll do another round of this, but it's nice to know I can...if I need to.
As a side note: I was a bit worried about the kids reaction to Avocado, but I've read how good it is for them (and I love it) so I really wanted to try. THEY LOVED IT! Okay, maybe "loved" is a little strong, but they didn't NOT like it!
No pictures, sorry. I promise my next post will have great pix of the Trips! A teaser to keep you all coming back...ha ha ha (read in a Count Dracula voice)...
