Baby Bites

Harrison's all time favorite food, at least for today, is a three blend of fall favorites. Though, lucky for me, these veggies are available year round... ...First I bake an acorn squash until fork tender...
...repeat with a butternut squash... ...Hello Mr. Sweet Potato! Yummy! Peel and cube this root veggie...
...simmer until pieces are fork tender...
...scoop cooked squash from their skins, add the tender sweet potato cubes and mash until desired consistency. I have been known to throw it in a blender to get a really smooth puree. These veggies are naturally sweet, but should you wish, you can always add baked apples or applesauce to sweeten it a bit more. On really special days I'll add a dash of brown sugar. You know, those might be the days that this is Harrison's favorite, hmmm...

  2. Yes- I love making his food! There is the occasional meal that I will need to give him a store bought jar, but for the most part I have made all his baby food. It is a blast creating new recipes to get him used to different flavors and spices. It's very easy and I've been able to save a ton of money!
