Last night I pureed peaches. 🙂 I had big plans of pureeing sweet potatoes and peas too, but realized I didn’t have room in our small freezer for all of those ice cube trays at once. lol. So, I started with peaches because they seemed the easiest. And it was so easy.
I first steamed the peaches in our Oyster steamer (I used frozen peaches). We got this for our wedding four and a half years ago and have NEVER used it. I have almost gotten rid of it several times, but was glad I didn’t. After they were steamed, I pureed them using the KidCo Food Mill, which I really liked, though it hasn’t gotten great reviews on babiesrus.com. We’ll see if it holds up. I have a food processor and a hand mixer, so if it dies, it won’t be the end of the world.
As I mentioned, I went the ice cube tray route. Elias was up at 3 this morning (first time in more than 2 weeks that he was up in the middle of the night) and after I nursed him, I went to the freezer to pop out the cubes because I was that excited. 🙂 Unfortunately, my trays are terrible and didn’t want to pop the frozen cubes out easily. I may need to buy some different ones this weekend.
I’m so excited for Elias to have his first homemade food today. Tonight I am going to do the sweet potatoes.
Several of you have asked me to share more about my approach to the 365 project (I didn’t get a kit). I plan to do this later today or tomorrow. I am really excited about my modified approach. To see my pictures to date, check out my 365 blog.
