The meals I prepared for Simona during the 7-9 month mark were some of the easiest and fastest foods to date. I enjoyed basically throwing whatever veggies I had in the fridge into a saucepan and boil them up. As she was still quite physically demanding on me (read this as, she had to be held most of the time or scream bloody murderer), I had to quickly prepare food while also making myself available to her.
3 medium red potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 carrots, peeled and cubed
1 green or yellow squash, peeled and cubed
2-2 ½ cups of water
1 tsp ghee
- In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil
- Add cubed vegetables and cook over medium-high heat until tender, 10-15 min (check potatoes as a benchmark for overall readiness)
- Pour water out and puree. If the consistency is too thick, add breastmilk or formula to reach desired consistency.
- Add ghee and mix well.
Total prep+cook time: 20 minutes
Freezer tip: whenever I made this recipe, I made more of it, divide into portions and freeze them. It saves a lot of time and hassle, especially in this tricky age, so don’t be afraid of making more food.
