SUCCESS! That my friends is Froyo! I was so excited (and riding the sugar rush) that I got lots done in the kitchen today.
Right after Froyo, I prepared Spawnbeast’s newest culinary adventure: Peaches!
I no longer use the big food processor, I find that I don’t have to purée his food as much. I use my handy-dandy stick blender with the bowl attachment. I have no idea what the baby food stages are or mean, but I’m guessing I’ve moved up a stage. We are now eating in combos. Usually a veggie with a fruit. Knock on wood, I don’t seem to have a picky eater on my hands. He seems to want to try everything. If there’s something he’s not jazzed about, he eventually warms up to it.
After baby food came dinner. I saw in my coupon mailer that tater tot casserole is a thing again. Since today was pretty chilly, I decided to throw together a tater tot Shepard’s pie.
I start with my go-to freezer veg, ground beef and brown gravy combo:
I made my own brown gravy mix but lost my recipe. It’s bullion, corn starch and a few other things. Next, the tots! My local grocery store sells tots that definitely have onion and other flavoring in them. I’m not wild about that. Next time, I will get Brand name so I know I’m actually getting plain tots. Anyway, after the meat was ready, I prepared my tater hole…
or ramekins…yeah, ramekins….
It took everything in my sugar-hopped being from organizing the tots perfectly
I have a few hours before these get baked for dinner. It’s nap time, so I better go and steal a few stitches!
