Yummy Peas

Caelyn lovessssss Peas. I, personally, hate peas. I mean, ew? But, whatever... she likes what she likes.
So, after I figured out that she loves peas... I decided to make some!

Instead of buying "fresh" peas and snapping them, which would take FOREVER.. I opted for the next best thing when it comes to homemaking baby food - frozen peas!

Note: when you are homemaking peas, its hard to get them to a good texture without lumpy peas in it still. My blender worked pretty good, but it took awhile!

This, my friends, smelled as nasty as it looks! Maybe its just because I think that peas smell nasty, but my little one loves it, so whatever!
It reminded me of Slime from Nickeloden!

This is how much two bags of steamfresh peas gets you! The bags frequently go on sale for $1 and if you have a coupon for $.50 which I find almost every paper.. and you go to a store that double coupons... well then you got the bags for FREE!

I wrapped them in Saran Wrap and popped them out the next morning!

I love making her baby food! Do you make baby food? If not, why don't you?


  1. I love peas! mmmmmm I can just taste their pea-ness now ;) Well, I used to make Brooklyns food. Now that she is able to eat finger foods, I love it!!!

    I loved making her sweet potatoes...I always thought they tasted WAY better than in the jar. Well, pretty much all homemade babyfood tastes better lol

  2. At this point, Grace eats basically everything as finger-food. Spaghetti, peas, carrots -- you name it, she eats it in chunks.
    Although I did make baby food for a little while there..!

  3. I totally made all my baby food last week!! I have a couple more to do! I did Green beans, peas, butternut squash, carrots, acorn squash, apples, prunes, and I am going to get plums and pears when I can find them! It has been going really well! I will post next week on it :) I am a new follower!!
