Roasted Pear + Dates Baby Food Puree

This puree is a special treat because it is Friday and we can all use something a little extra special on Friday. For us mama’s our special Friday treat should involve a couple of these, these or these. If you are knocked up like I am then we will have to settle for this or this. Either way, it is a win/win.

But for the kiddos neither one of our special treats will due.

So, we have to try something else.

Something roasted and sweet with a squeeze of orange just because we can.

This puree is healthy enough to be called baby food but yummy enough that if us mama’s were to add some heavy cream, a good amount of sugar and some chocolate we could call it dessert.

A puree that is smooth and chunky at the same time while still having the power to melt in your mouth.

It’s Friday. Let’s go crazy.
