Original post –
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
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.
