Smorgasbord

After last weekend's visit from Aunt Robyn, we are sufficiently stocked up on baby food! While we were at the marriage conference, she cooked and pureed the acorn squash, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes we had bought. Why stop there? She noticed apples and carrots in the refrigerator and green beans in the freezer. We then made a trip to a cute little supermarket on the Washington square that has a great produce section and bought some asparagus, frozen peas, and a can of peaches and pumpkin. What a variety the kids have now! On the approved list - peaches, pears, bananas, avocados, apples, pumpkin, multiple squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, and peas. Waiting in the wings to try - carrots and asparagus. So far they have liked everything. The green beans and peas are a little harder to digest so they get that sparingly. Their tummies may be a little young yet for the non-orange items. It's a lot of fun to make them food and know exactly what they are eating. Plus, it smells really great when it's heated in the microwave. Shannon and I have commented a few times that the kids are going to get us to try some new things and expand our horizons!
