My delightful daughter decided to wake at 5am this morning,and then at 8am went back to sleep!We are exhausted,but with the early start I made some dinners for her for the week.
This recipe is actually taken from my “Annabel Karmel Top 100 Baby Purees“, though not a purée. I need to add here: I detest butternut squash!Love the taste,but peeling and chopping it makes me feel like I’ve been cutting down a tree!If anyone knows a quicker and easier way please let me know!
