So first I got 5 sweet potatoes:
I poked holes in them with a fork and wrapped them in aluminum foil. I baked them for an hour at 400*
Meanwhile, I tested out my new Jamie Oliver mug I got at Barnes and Noble for $2.50. They are having their 75% clearance right now. Lots of great stuff!
Mmmmm, creme brulee hot chocolate. Creme brulee is only my favorite dessert ever.
Now the best part:
The potatoes came out:
They are so easy to peel. You can just pull the skin off after they cool a few minutes.
Into the mixer. I added 5 ounces of breast milk. So um, sample at your own risk, okay? ;-)
After this was pureed to a silky smoothness, I filled up clean ice cube trays. I had enough to do 3 large travel containers as well.
Put the ice cube trays in freezer zip locks to keep them clean and prevent freezer burn. Just take a cube out to defrost the day before. Voila, individual servings. And the best part? All this food only cost me $3.90!
Now, time for some cuteness:
Cort the Conquerer and Piratey Reid. Every day is a good day for costumes!
