April 9, 2010 - Homemade with Heart

So the rice cereal was not a big hit in this house. It flopped harder than a million dollar budget movie that no one goes to see. So next production in our home (with a $2.00 budget) - apples!

Now there are theories out there that say don't do fruit before veggies because your baby will never like veggies. It seems like there's always a ton of "theories" for everything these days, doesn't it? We spend more time coming up with theories than living life. Well, we're tossing those empty, pesky theories aside and we're going with fruit.

And this mom's doing it homemade-style. I found a great website with recipes and instructions for homemade baby food. I know some of it just takes a little common sense and enough familiarity in the kitchen to know what a pot is, but this mama wanted a little guidance. It also has a section on what freezes well and what's a flop, and since I plan on making big batches of food Georgia likes and freezing it in cubes, I'm finding that section delicious.

Here's the website:Wholesome baby food.

And here's my first foray into the homemade baby food world:

So after the research, the preparation, the love - the blood, sweat and tears (ok, not really) - did my little monkey like her breast milk-infused homemade applesauce?

Ok, we're still trying to figure that one out, but she did eat a couple of teaspoons worth. That's good, right? Next stop, bananas, on this fast moving life express.

That's great! I've been reading your blog for a couple weeks now (found you through Kelle Hampton's blog)...Georgia is super cute. And what a birth story! Your family is truly blessed.

I'm traveling to Omaha for business this Thu - Sat. I've never been before. Do you recommend anything in particular? I'll have a couple free hours Friday after 5pm. Thanks so much!

Thanks for reading Bree. It's always nice to know folks are out there!

If you'll only have a couple of hours to spare, I would suggest hitting up the Old Market area. It's basically the historic downtown area. There are a lot of neat little shops, the buildings are beautiful and the restaurants are fantastic. Some great restaurants are M's Pub, Vivace's, Upstream Brewery and Indian Oven.

From the Old Market area, you can also head down to the riverfront and walk along the Missouri River. It's a pretty walk.

If you have more time to kill and are an animal lover, Omaha has one of the best zoos in the country.

I hope some of this helps and you enjoy your stay. Any questions while you're here you can shoot me an e-mail: jaime.mccutcheon@wowt.com
