A Very Productive Monday

I’ve been making a lot of baby food today… LOTS of baby food. I was low on fruit for Jace, and figured it was a good idea to take advantage of all the fresh fruit while it’s still available at good prices. So, I made 4 pounds of kiwis, 4 pounds of plums, 1 flat of yellow peaches, 1 flat of white peaches, 1 flat of pears, 1 flat of apples, and a little zucchini and yellow squash. I already have a lot of veggies frozen, so fruit was my emphasis. Jace is going to be eating well! I love Wholesome Baby Food’s website for lists of age appropriate foods, recipes by stages, and instructions for different methods of making baby food. It’s nice making Jace such healthy food, and it’s really nice knowing I make all of his food for about a third of what it would cost to buy premade baby food in the store.

I also saw this YUMMY looking cookie recipe today at Be Different… Act Normal. Maybe I’ll have to make some once I get off the computer.

I spent a while looking online for fun ideas of gifts I can make for our nieces and nephews for Christmas. I think I could pull of making some really cool gifts for $5 or less per kid! This will be huge since we have 8 nieces and nephews and will be making Christmas happen on a lot less money this year.

Maybe, if I’m feeling really ambitious and forgo actually getting ready for the day (yes, it’s already 3:45 pm and I’m still in my pj’s… it’s been a long morning of making baby food while caring for a fussy, teething baby), I’ll get a few more items finished to list in my Etsy shop.

And since it’s always more fun reading a blog post with a picture, here’s my little guy loving helping mom in the kitchen.
