Today I was really in the mood to make some home-made food (this is rare for me...I'm more of a sandwhich and chips girl), and I got this new cookbook for Christmas, so I thought I'd try it out. Here's a pic:
I spent a few hours roasting 2 pumpkins, carving out the flesh, and pureeing it, putting it in bags, and dating them. I also had to steam 2 yellow squash, 2 zucchinis, 1 head of cauliflower, 1 head of broccoli, 2 apples, a bag of carrots, and something else (but I can't remember). Just steaming and putting all those items in the blender is a time consuming process. Now, I have my freezer stacked with about 25 1/2 cup portions of the aforementioned fruit and veggies puree style. My first recipe was "Applesauce Muffins" and after screwing up the 'way' to mix the batter (I always put in my ingredients even before I read the directions..I'm impatient...), they turned out pretty good. Not only are they made with applesauce but also 1/2 cup of pureed carrot! What do you think?
