I obsess. It’s true.
A lot of my time is spent obsessing. It’s kinda what I do. I
obsess over things that really don’t need to be obsessed about.
Please don’t tell anyone, it should stay our little secret.
So needless to say, I completely obsessed about this first blog post.
What should I make? Something that could be found on a trendy hipster restaurant menu? A puree with something infused into something else? Maybe a gimmicky puree inspired by my favorite summer cocktail?
It went on and on like this. Over and over. Days went by.
Oh what to make.
It needed to be something simple. No real work required. Easy. Something that smelled just as good as it tasted. Something that both you and the babes would eat together, smelling, laughing, bonding.
Then it just came to me.
Apples + Cinnamon
Really life doesn’t need to be as hard as I make it.
This recipe is easy. Requires very little skill. Best of all it can be accomplished on less then 5 hours of sleep while your little is
having a complete melt down in the other room napping.
Double bonus, it will make all of your other baby mama friends hate you with jealousy because of how great of a mom you are.
Just don’t tell them how easy this recipe is, but do bring enough to share.
Apples + Cinnamon
6 Organic Apples – I prefer Fuji or Pink Lady
½ Cup of Water
¼ to ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
Wash apples. Peel (don’t get all crazy with this step, some peel will only add to your babes daily fiber intake and to be honest, as they get older leave the peel on. They will never know) and coarsely chop apple. Make sure you get as much meat off of the core as possible. Throw apple chunks in pot with cinnamon and water. Heat on medium for 15 minutes or until you can smash the apple down with the back of a wooden spoon. Let cool until you can’t stand it anymore then dump apples and cinnamon water into blender. Blend until you have your desired consistency. A couple quick pulses will result in a chunky apple that is perfect to eat on the spot, with plain Greek yogurt or oatmeal. Blend for at least 30-60 seconds for a smooth puree.
