I made my first batch of homemade baby food yesterday--acorn squash. And Mags LOVED it. I simply baked it at 350 for 45 minutes, scooped out the flesh, purreed and added water, and voila! Instant goodness. My good friend La and my new friend Beth (here in Chicago) have inspired me to make my own food. Thanks, girls. I'm using the book "Super Baby Food" and it's incredibly helpful. Mags has now eaten avocado, sweet potatoes, pears, and squash and likes them all. Hooray!
