I’m at it again with the Beautiful Soup-ing. I can’t help it, it’s delicious and I make something with the bone broth at least once a week. It’s fresh, healthy, and something I can feel good about feeding my family. As I was preparing dinner the other night, I thought, “hey those really cute baby food mason jars could used to be well..used.” I don’t know why it hadn’t occurred to me before to just blend up what we were eating and feed it to him but that’s just what I did. He has had a few pouches before but this was his first time gobbling up any food. He ate every last bite.
You want to know what I put in my soup? Me too. That’s what happens when you never use a recipe. This version was beautiful bone broth, organic chicken thighs from Costco, red potatoes, carrots, celery, and pinto beans (make sure you check the expiration if you buy them from Food Lion, just saying, sigh). I put about 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup Marsala wine in with tumeric (still not sure I even like this but it’s supposed to be good for you), paprika, oregano, and parsley. I served it with Our House gluten free corn muffins (no it’s not a fad, do you want to see pictures of the rash?). Well, not for the baby. The baby just got his thrown in the blender with some extra uncooked carrots for good measure. If you don’t have a blendtec, I suggest you remedy that.
So, apparently this is how we baby food with four kids. Baby Hey J isn’t complaining! **If you’re in the Shenandoah or upper northern Virginia area, check out Beautiful Soup on Facebook or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org and order some for yourself. Her bone broth has made all the difference in my own and my family’s health and Tara is fantastic. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!**
