Awesome Snacking

While I prepare all this baby food I need my snacks to  keep up. I admit I’m a poor eater some days. And usually have some poor eating mixed with better eating on most days. Unfortunately some days I just feel like living on chips, chocolate and ice cream (sounds worse when I write it). And if I do, I feel disgusting at the end of it. But still it was like F u all u food snobs (like me on some days). Anyway, wanted to share my favorite snacks that I can’t seem to live without recently. These are of course recommended as an addition to an otherwise nutritional diet. (haha.) I will also include some wines and cheeses I have been enjoying lately. Because I think I can put them into the snack category. I think.

This is my number one chip crave at the moment (they go great with most red wines and cheese):

These are my second favorite and go great with beer and need a tall glass of water served with them:

These are the cheeses I like with wine or the chips or some good meatballs (all those together have been a regular dinner recently at our house) :

Here are the chicken meatballs from Costco that we love( nothing wrong with that I remind myself):

Here are my favorite affordable wines right now:

And my chocolates that I really can’t go a day without at least a nibble from (I’m pretty sure there is something wrong in the grammatical order of things in that past sentence but heck, this is not my native tongue) :

And here finally my favorite sorbet going on since my June discovery:

So when I said baby food blog I meant everything BUT….haha. No, I will get back on course but whoever there is reading and looking into making good baby food…I’m sure they need to be well fed themselves as well.

The Furious Rutabaga

I think the rutabaga is furious because it’s often forgotten. It is at it’s best when pureed and added a ton of butter/milk mix and salt, then maybe even into a casserole dish and into the oven with some breadcrumbs on top. But as I recently discovered I had the genius idea of using it for baby food. I’m positive I made the rutabaga happy. So on my first post I will go on a quest to make the rutabaga happy! You should use this for baby food and maybe add some herbs. I added some basil. It’s super healthy and Lola loved it!

Happy Rutabaga

2 Rutabagas (peeled and cut up)—–>put into boiling water and let boil until soft.

Put pieces into something like this:

work in batches unless you have a bigger one, add some of the cooking liquid. Rutabaga requires more liquid than most.

Add basil leaves to the last batch, then mix all together in a bowl like so:

Let cool and transfer into ziplock containers, I  use one bigger that I leave to the fridge and then one smaller that I freeze.

Like so:

This picture has also Carrot & Sunchoke puree and Peas & Green beans puree. All is organic. More recipes will follow.

Hope you enjoyed making this. I know you made 2 rutabagas very happy (and a baby maybe).
