Homemade WHAT?

Meal Plan Day 2:

Veggie Soup & Cornbread. I made them both. Recipes at the bottom of post!

Cooking Machine.

Baby food in the making.

I pureed up lot’s of baby food. (sweet potato, zucchini & green beans) I put the sweet potato & zucchini together- zucchini was kind of runny, so I made the sweet potato a little thicker- he liked it… hasn’t tried the green beans yet though)

The clean freak in me screams and I have to just let go every time I feed this child.

It was a successful day in the kitchen people. 
Thankfully he entertained himself like this the whole time.

Here’s how it all went down:


  • 1 onion 
  • 2 Potatos
  • 1 small Zucchini 
  • half a bag Green Beans
  • 1 can corn 
  • 1 can Beans
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • 13 oz can of tomato puree
  • 12ish oz of broth (of your choice) I used chicken broth because that’s what we had, which made it not so vegetarian. As long as you aren’t serving to a vegetarian that doesn’t really matter does it.
  • 1 bottle Sierra Nevada
  • Seasoning of your choice- we put garlic power, onion power, cracked black pepper, cumin, paprika and white pepper

Special instructions: Grill onion in pan with a little bit of oil first- then dump all ingredients in crockpot. Cook on High for 3-4 hours or low 7-8 hours.

Extra special instructions: dump a lot of hot sauce in this bad boy. Hot sauce makes everything better. We used Franks.


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • half jar of salsa
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 can creamed corn
  • spoonful or two of sour cream
  • 3 eggs

Preheat oven and bake on 400 for 30ish minutes depending on how moist you like it. I took mine out at 30 minutes and it was perfect for my liking- pretty moist but certainly done. 

Per usual with soup/stew/chili/whatever- this was much better day two. The cornbread, while not the healthiest is freaking good.

Tomorrow- I’ll post tonight’s meal. Mile repeats are lined up for tomorrow, so it better be some good fuel.
