Plastic for dinner

I make most of Sophie's baby food myself. I buy boxes of baby cereal, and a couple of the fruits, but everything else I make from fresh or frozen vegetables because a) it tastes better than the canned baby food, and b) it is much cheaper. It really is quite easy to make loads of baby food all in one afternoon.

This afternoon I was making Sophie some green beans. I had filled the blender completely full of cooked green beans, and just started to puree. I stuck the plastic spoon into the blender to push the beans down towards the blade and all of a sudden it made a horrible grinding noise, shot up into the air and got green bean puree everywhere! Note to self: remember not to stick the spoon down too far into the blender!

The whole blender of beans was lost, since a little piece of plastic came off the spoon and was lodged in the puree somewhere. Luckily, there is still plenty of peas and sweet potatoes for dinner.

Okay, you caught me! This post is really just an excuse to post another picture of my Marshmallow, but can you blame me? We can't wait for everyone to meet her in a couple of weeks!

i can't wait to meet her either. it's deep down sad to me that miles knows my neighbor much better than he knows any of his aunts and uncles. we haven't seen you parkers for way too long.

Good thing it was the spoon that broke and not the blender. Like when Our blender shattered because I left a metal spoon in it on accident. Sophie is so cute!
