i spent last weekend making lots of baby food for macie. our freezer is now full of ziplock bags with individual portion size blocks of food. so far she has just tried bananas, pears, and peaches. she likes the pears and peaches, but will only eat the bananas if they are mixed in with her cereal (they are so slimy they just slide right out of her mouth). hopefully we have enough food to last her about a month. i also figured out that making your own baby food (especially if you go organic) does not save money! if you like to cook, though, it is fun to make...and to me it looks and tastes a little better than the jarred.
