preview for tomorrow's column: homemade baby food


My bright red Kitchen Aid mixer taunts me from the corner of my kitchen counter. It is more of a decoration than a baking tool. I am no Suzy-Homemaker.


But, when my girlfriend told me she would teach me how to make homemade baby food, I took on the challenge. For one, she promised it was easy. Secondly, it was a healthier option. Lastly, it would save money.

If you are a parent, you know how expensive babies are. Having a baby has brought out the budgeter in me. In order to be very economical one has to have time, skill and patience. Three things I struggle with.

 
Economical options such as cloth diapers just means more laundry; sewing clothes requires skill; and second hand store shopping takes energy. I barely had the patience to breastfeed.

However, if making baby food was really going to be easy, than why not provide my baby with healthy, organic food and save some pennies. So, I put that Kitchen Aid to use and surprised myself.

sand eater

Audrey's first beach trip proved she is not like her momma thinking sand is dirty. She thinks it is a good dessert (and I obviously still think it is gross).

still sick...

It just seems the sickness is going in circles around the house. 

First I was sick, then Audrey was sick, then Chris was sick, then Audrey again and now I am sick again. 

We're out of Kleenex and tea and all have red, sore noses.

Hopefully, be back soon!!
