I feel so good about this

What is this stuff? Can you take a guess? Well, I'll tell you if you can't figure it out. It's homemade baby food! Specifically: green beans. I also made carrots, butternut squash and sweet potatoes. And I feel really good about doing it.
Here's what I did:
  1. cleaned (of course) then steamed or baked the veggies
  2. put them in my magic bullet with a little water
  3. puree
  4. scoop into ice cube trays and freeze.
  5. EASY!
Now we'll have perfect little baby portions of homemade feel-good baby food! Plus we're saving money at the same time, but that's not why I feel so good about it. It's because I'm doing the best for my baby. Sure I could be lazy and go buy the pre-packaged baby food, but who knows what they really add to it. I know what's in my baby food. And I have the time to do it. And that's why it makes me feel so good.
