It's zucchini season! These glorious, giant, ubiquitous veggies are flooding everyone's gardens right now. I decided, while the getting's good, to get some and start making and freezing baby food for my Maeve.
Last night I cubed, steamed, and mashed summer squash and zucchini, and made about a quart of baby food. It was squishy, and quite a vibrant color that made me want to sing "great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts"! DH helped with the mashing once my wrists gave out, and he agreed the color was... evocative.
I find out tomorrow whether our new pediatrician thinks Maeve can start solid foods yet, and I can hardly wait. Of course,we won't start her on zucchini; it'll be rice cereal initially. But the baby food making adventure has begun! know it'll be messy, wild, and unpredictable, but I'm so excited to see what Maeve likes and doesn't like. There's so much for all three of us to learn!
