With a two year old in the house there tend to be "unexplained mysteries" that occur from time to time - like just today I found a partially eaten apple in the ficus tree. I didn't know that ficuses ate apples - but I am sure Percival was just being a good host and making sure that the tree had enough to eat... Anyhoo - I added this apple to another apple that was in the fridge, also partially eaten and remembered that there was a partially eaten apple in the stroller that a friend had given Percival while we were out on a walk yesterday. This collection of apples with two year old teeth marks in them was just too cute - it was like Alvin and the chipmunks came to visit!
While Percival is not the pickiest eater, he is not a fan of finishing apples that are brown and nibbled upon, so what I decided to do with them is blend them up for the baby to make apple sauce. I had a good handful of sprouted groat ready to eat as well, so I threw everything in the blender together and it made a creamy sweet nutritious baby food delight that Percival and I found ourselves enjoying along with Cincinnatus!
I do recommend eating what you make right away. By dinner time (I made the mix at lunch) it had begun to smell a bit off..
