Butternut Squash

    Today I made butternut squash for Noah- first time I ever made that. It was so easy!  It tastes like a cross between sweet potato and pumpkin.

    I really am having fun making baby food for him. Not only is it way cheaper (and we are cheap thrifty) it feels good knowing that i just made that for him and it's as fresh as fresh can be. and it's fun! I never really did it with my other two- not often at least I thought it was too much of a hassle but with the right tools (a blender or decent size food processor that works well) and the knowledge (http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/) it's really easy.

 I'm kinda strange in that I enjoy taking pictures of food- I always have! So here is how I made it:
cut butternut squash lengthwise and fill a baking dish with about 1"  water, scoop out seeds
put flesh side down in dish and bake at 400 for 40 min

Ding! it's done!

let it cool

scoop out and put in blender

freeze in ice cube trays

Warm it up and it's ready to eat!

I made all of E's food and it was great! I loved the squash myself! I am inspired that making baby food is still possible with your 3rd baby!
