Prepping for Solids v.2

I did some more fruit & veggie shopping yesterday, since I was in the zone. :)

  • 5x pears = 1 tray. It's a bit of a gritty puree, as pears tend to be, but nice and sweet.
  • 6x small parsnips = 0.8 of a tray. Surprisingly, they smell stronger than they taste. I've never eaten them on my own before, only mixed in soups and stews. I let Georgia lick my finger after I pureed them, and she didn't seem too fazed. (She would have only gotten a microscopic amount, though.)
  • 6x zucchinis = 1.4 trays. They were VERY watery, and smell gross.
  • 1x can of peaches = 1.6 trays. It's not quite peach season here & I couldn't find frozen ones, so this had to do for now. I made sure to buy the organic kind in their own juice, no extras in there.
  • 1x bunch of spinach leaves = 0.8 trays. Even mixed with boiled water to blend, this mixed down to nothing.
I've got a nice little freezer stash of solid foods ready to go - bring on the weekend!!!!

I saw your freezer pic on Instagram the other day and I'm so impressed! Actually, you're teaching me a lot about how it should be done when my time comes in a few months. How often do you think you'll need to do this big puree/freeze party?

Wow, thanks for the great tips on solids (especially storage and such!)

Georgia is absolutely adorable!
