Saturday’s two creations consisted of 7 vegetable bolognese with tiny star pasta AND strawberries, apple, kale and rice puree.  I did the bolognese during the morning nap and the fruit puree during afternoon nap.  Since my children don’t power nap, they spent a little time in their cribs “talking” so I could actually finnish the prep for the freezer.

I am thankful to Annabel Karmel for her recipes.  I have made a lot of them so now I am into inventing my own and using her’s as a basic guide.

I know I could appear to be a spokesperson for the Vitamix 5200 but I promise I’m not.  But that is my savior in this baby food making adventure.  It’s really easy and efficient.  So it makes the time spent much shorter than doing it by hand or by a traditional food processor.

The first photo shows the strawberries, apples and kale cooking.  Second photo is the brown rice added to the puree (after the Vitamix) and the last photo is the storage/freezing process.
