I've been making lots of these lately:
|Spinach + sweet potato|
|"Mama, solids are clearly more delicious when spread all over your face. Duh!"|
We've been using a variety of utensils to make her food, but lately we've been using a dim sum steamer basket and our mini food processor. Awhile back, we broke our immersion blender, so Colby decided that it would be brilliant to get a commercial kitchen grade appliance. I'm pretty sure that has more power than our weed whacker (which, admittedly, is not very powerful) and I basically have to stand on a stool to use it comfortably at the stove. We'll use it if we're blending a lot of stuff at once, but for general purposes it's just not practical.
At first I thought that starting her on foods was going to be a very sad event because I'd no longer be her sole source of nutrition, but it's actually be really fun. I can't imagine how awesome it is to try something as delicious as sweet potatoes for the first time ever, but I know that she's really enjoying herself.
|Our dog, Kimchi, is also very happy that we've started Ramona on solids. ;)|
