So I cannot cook. When I say I can’t cook, I really mean that I CANNOT COOK. I once ruined a copper bottom pot boiling water. I peeled my first potato and first apple this week. Even if I make brownies from a box where I have to add two whole ingredients? Come out nasty!
I’m 27 years old and if my husband isn’t home (which is 12 nights a month) I live off of microwave meals and total junk food (although being pregnant really helped clean up my totally unhealthy diet) If my definition of cooking includes making a sandwich or pouring myself a bowl of cereal, how the heck am I supposed to feed another human being? One that assumingly, shouldn’t live off sandwiches and cereal until he’s at least in college!
Enter Auntie Sarah. She is like a younger, hotter, less criminal version of Martha Stuart. If you see something awesome in a magazine, whether it be a cake or a set of curtains, she can duplicate it. Needless to say, I’m pretty sure she finds my total lack of skills in the kitchen a little bit foreign.
Fortunately for us, she came through and saved the day when it came to my desire to only feed Mason homemade foods. No, she didn’t cook us a 4 month supply of baby food, but instead, she got us an awesome BabyCook!
Have you guys heard of this thing? You put your food in it and it steams it and then can chop it up to whatever consistency you want. And it’s totally idiot proof.
So far I’ve made carrots (see yesterday’s pictures LOL)
(Omg, hot fresh applesauce is the yummiest thing in the world!)
And I can’t wait to make a million other things with it too! What’s great is that while it’s PERFECT for making purees, it can be used to make so much more than that and I’m sure we’ll be using it to steam foods and chop stuff up long after Mason outgrows his “I only consume mush” stage.
Thank you Auntie Sarah! I no longer have nightmares of trying to put a sandwhich in a blender and calling that Mason’s dinner!
