avocado and banana
* both of these are super easy because they require NO cooking (now that's my idea of a good time)
*just put chunks into a blender, add some water to liquify, and puree! you can also add breastmilk or formula and even oatmeal (or rice cereal, depending on what you use)
*cute lengthwise and scoop out seeds
*place facedown on a baking sheet and roast for about 40-45 mins
*scoop out cooked squash, add water until you get your desired consistency, and voila! one squash made 40, one-ounce servings of food!
i bought a silicone mini-brownie pan from michaels for freezing the food. it was $5 with a %40 off coupon. you can also use ice cube trays, although the silicone makes it MUCH easier to remove frozen cubes. either way, each cube is almost exactly 1 ounce! so it's easy to know how much you're giving your little one. i only leave the frozen cubes in the tray until they are frozen, then i remove them promptly and transfer to freezer bags. so far i've made butternut squash, sweet potato, peas, pears, peach/mango, avocado, and banana.
happy babyfood making!!
