Adventures in baby food making: Chicken Puree!

We went to Granna and Pop's house last week and got to make Cohen his first meal with chicken in it! This is big. Because I feel like chicken is a staple in our house. So, we want to get the boy to likin' chicken.

I flipped through my cook book and decided on one called "My first chicken puree."

1/4 cup washed and sliced white part of a leek
1 T vegetable oil
3 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
2 plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 cup unsalted chicken broth

Saute the leek in the vegetable oil until softened. Then add the chicken and saute until it has sealed. Add the potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes and pour in the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Puree.

Cohen crawled up on Granna and Pop's fireplace, like it was no big deal. :(  He would sidle up there and scratch his little hand on the metal screen.. he loved the sound it made. He even learned how to get OFF the fireplace without busting it. My big boy...

Nice trip to Paris with a cool new meal under our belts! Can't wait to go back, we miss Granna and Pop a ton!
