Last night I was confined to my kitchen for a couple of hours. See below video for a small clue as to why. Anyway, during my quarantine, I made a big batch of stew. As I was making my stew, I thought to myself, "I wonder if Ryan Castro would like my stew. I know he doesn't like vegetables, but really, who doesn't like stew"? Luckily, his wonderful wife, Christina called me an hour later. She confirmed that Ryan would indeed have enjoyed my stew. (I told you this was random.) Moving on....I ate some stew for lunch today. It was yummy. While I was eating it, I thought again about Ryan enjoying my stew, if only he would be so lucky to get some. Thinking about him liking my stew made me wonder if Lizzy would enjoy my stew. So, I fed some of the peas to Lizzy. She enjoyed them. Then I suddenly remembered a wonderful little gem in my life. A baby food grinder!

Arghh....I can't believe I forgot about our food grinder until now! When I make baby food that usually entails cooking squash or yams in the oven, letting them cool off, throwing them in the blender, dispersing them among their own little containers etc. I still like to do that for when I need a quick meal for Lizzy. However, the stew is totally baby safe.
The grinder has re-earned it's right as a permanent fixture on my kitchen counter top.
