I blame Rusty. Hanalei decided that she didn't want to eat baby food anymore. Who would blame her. But what the heck was I going to feed her now? So I looked online for recipes. I found a pretty cool site. I tried three different recipes.
The first one was a teething biscuit recipe. I cut them into hearts and they turned out pretty cute. I didn't take a picture...oops. She liked these but they weren't worthy of a meal supplement.
The Next thing I tried was sweet potato fries. She hated them. Way too much work for her to just smash them with her fingers.
The last one I tried from this site was baby meat balls. I used ground turkey and added the sweet potato fries she didn't like. You use wheat germ and baby cereal instead of bread crumbs. She really liked these. SO finally I had success.
These next two are my own genius. I was able to sneak in some baby food to my baby by adding baby cereal and baby food to a smoothie. If you use squash or sweet potato it doesn't make it taste weird. She really likes this. If you have excess smoothie you can freeze it in an ice cube tray then put them in a ziplock baggie for later use. So easy!
This one i like to eat too. I cut up an apple then put a couple slices in a bowl with water a cinnamon. Cut it in the micro for just over a min. or until soft. Then cut it into cubes. It taste so stinkin good. I usually put them in some baby cereal and shake it until they are coated. Then Hanalei can grab them easier.
It's a good thing Hanalei is so cute, cause she is a lot of work! I'm sure she is trying to say, "Thanks Mom"
