Baby Eats

Some of the things Gwen has been eating recently…

Roasted Butternut Squashed & Mashed Potato Puree
I like to make single-ingredient purees and then mix them together to create new combinations. I think this way Gwen won’t get bored by eating the same thing all the time. I made these purees using leftovers- the roasted butternut squash was a little undercooked (which is why it was leftover) so I simmered it in some chicken stock before pureeing and freezing, and for the mashed potatoes I added a little water to them so I could more easily scoop them into my ice cube trays. This was 2 cubes of the squash and three of the potatoes.

Roasted Red Pepper Mac & No Cheese
I made this for Taylor, Sym and myself, but for Gwen I set aside some pieces of roasted pepper and a little of the sauce before adding the cheese. She really liked it, and we liked the full, cheesy version!

Winnipeg Rye with Fig Jam
I bought this fig jam to eat on crostini with goat cheese because I’m smug and annoying, but Gwen loved it on bread! She still likes stuffing her mouth with food so I cut the bread into little squares and give her one at a time. I cut the bottom crust off this bread because it’s too hard for her but the upper crust is fine.
