Not So Clever Me

I had a brainwave before we left for this trip...I'd make all of Jr's food (and here's the brainwave), and freeze it flat in ziplocs so it could be packed efficiently.  I like efficient things.

The first part worked fine:

So I made apples, rutabaga, broccoli and cauliflower and blueberries, as well as the peas, corn, beets, parsnips and potatoes I made later.

The broccoli and cauliflower proved a little much for Jr's inner gastronome:

But otherwise things seemed to be going well.  All the ziplocs even fit into our smallest cooler.  Well, they had to.  The only other choice was to tape them to the side of our Very Small Car for the trip.

The thing about ziploc bags is, they're made out of pretty thin plastic.  And the thing about frozen pureed baby food is, its sharp.  So you can see where I'm going with this.

Fortunately, after his initial resistance, Jr is happy to eat apple-rutabaga-broccoli-cauliflower-pea-corn-beet-parsnip-potato-blueberry puree.  I think he even enjoys it.

Back to ice cube trays for me.
