The other day I lingered a little too long over coffee and a very juicy story with a friend. I needed some baby food fast, so I bought one of those organic packets. Harry was delighted and gobbled it up faster than anything I have cooked for him. Hmm, how convenient. Ever determined to match this packet stuff, I laboured over a hot stove, and three puree’s later, I matched the packet mix perfectly. Ha, I win.
I kept some refrigerated to serve over the next few days, and froze some. Harry loves this on its own or mixed with baby porridge. It’s also a great way to help introduce new foods, I added a bit to some puree carrot this afternoon and it went down a treat.
