The poll results came in…Abigail’s first veggie will be peas (I’m actually quite happy about the results being that I only had peas and carrots in our house – your votes saved me a grocery run!).
The poll broke down like this:
- Peas – 37.5%
- Sweet Potatoes – 25%
- Carrots – 18.75%
- Other – 18.75%
- Brussel Sprouts – 0% (no love? haha)
Thanks for participating!
Moving on…Peas will be broken down into 2 sections: Recipe & Prep, and Testing (aka – Eating!). The reason for this is simple – Abigail is napping and hasn’t had a chance to try the peas yet!
That being said, Peas were a cinch to make. All you need are some frozen peas, water, a steamer and a blender. Here’s the recipe (if you have a hard time reading it or have any questions, let me know!):
Abigail was very excited about the process (until the blender totally freaked her out).
See below for more pictures of the actual process and stay tuned for Part 2: Testing!
From the looks of it, I think she’s excited (or at least very curious)…
Up next: TBD
