Cookfest in pictures...

Like I mentioned the other day, I had a cook fest this past week. (In fact I had to go out and buy more ice cube trays to freeze the food in) I made broccoli/carrots/sweet potato, plain sweet potato, asparagus/carrot/sweet potato, cauliflower/carrot/sweet potato, barley/applesauce, sweet potato chicken with grapes. Below is a picture tutorial of how I cooked the chicken dish. I pretty much double the recipe from the book.

Saute onions in a little olive oil

Add chicken and saute for a few minutes

Add sweet potatoes and no salt added chicken stock(I just happened to have some made in the freezer)

After it simmers for about 15 minutes, time to peel the grapes. Here I have peeled half of them.

In the food processor and ready to puree (It took 2 batches because I have a mini food processor. FYI the amount of stock you use when pureeing depends on the consistency you are looking for)

WAAAALAAAAA....spooned into ice cube trays in 1 oz portions, cover with saran wrap and freeze. Then store in a ziploc freezer bag.

Way to go Lori. This was Connor's favorite dish. Can't wait to start making food again!
