Homemade gooness

After reading a girl's blog that made all her baby's food (I can't put a link to the blog because this girl has no idea I am blog stalking her and it might be a little embarrassing if she found out considering she has absolutely no idea who I am) and seeing how easy it was, I got inspired and decided to try my hand at it as well. Baby food is expensive and money is definitely something we don't have in abundance at the moment (2 more months until Elliot graduates!!!) so I thought this would be a good solution.
I decided to start with carrots, avacado's (Heather you inspired me on this one) and sweet potatoes.
I baked the potatoes
and steamed the carrotsand mashed up the avacado's and pureed the carrots and potates and put them in ice cube trays
and wha-la! I now have baby food sitting in my freezer. So far I have only given him the sweet potatoes and he seems like like those. We'll have to see about the other ones.
