"3rd" babyfoods

I love cooking. I love my daughter. So I guess it goes to figure, I should love cooking for my daughter. But we all know how it goes, the day flies by, and convenience is, well, convenient. So today, since she was sick, and since church is good at messing up naps, I chose to stay home so she could sleep. I cleaned up the kitchen and then made a great batch of baby food for her that even I would eat (seriously, it was GOOD!) It is easier now too, because she can handle so much more texture and has moved on, in some cases, to those almost rancid "3rd foods" in the jar. I thought I'd share what I did, especially because it turned out so well...

one half chicken breast cut into medium chunks
2 leftover canned artichoke hearts
1/3 ish cup of frozen chopped spinach
1/2 roasted red bell pepper
a bit of salt
a sprinkle of garlic powder
a splash of apple juice for sweetness

I seared the chicken, threw in the veggies, added about a cup of water and simmered it for about 10 minutes. I threw it in the food processor, pulsed it a few times... and viola, awesome, nutritious and delicious baby food. This time I mixed in some rice cereal... but either way! Yum!
