thks babe!!hey regina,
its the same way as you freeze purees.
But it has to be slightly watery if you can coz when you microwave it afterwards it cld be abit dry at times.If tht happens i just add some hot water..just a tiny tiny amt.But it doesnt happen tht often.
Saves so much time.I cook one big pot take ages...i cant afford to make tht everyday.
So once a week i cook it..freeze it n when wanna eat microwave it.Cool already can eat !!
ya..freeze in the portion ur son wld eat.So just microwave tht container.U try n see wht kind of container enuf for his porridge one feed.U dont want container too big also..waste space.Me i like the glad ones.Sometimes i use the normal ones when going out.So when baby eat finish..can throw it away liao..no need carry back smelly container..hehhehethks babe!!
but instead of freezing it into those small ice cubes, has to freeze in bigger portion??
Is GLAD container microwave safe? if not, hw u thaw the porridge?? i'm thinking of freezing porridge a day b4 CNY, so the next day just heat up, pour into thermal jar and go.. haha...ya..freeze in the portion your son wld eat.So just microwave tht container.you try n see wht kind of container enuf for his porridge one feed.you dont want container too big also..waste space.Me i like the glad ones.Sometimes i use the normal ones when going out.So when baby eat finish..can throw it away ..no need carry back smelly container..hehhehe
Any kind of porridge can freeze.I make the fish kind,meat n sometimes the plain rice ones.Definately a time saver n since i do not make it tht often i make it a point to make it really well...baby loves it!!woah, i didn't know porridge can also freeze.. that definately will save a lot of time! what kind of porridge are you all talking about anyway? Fish/meat porridge? or plain white porridge.
Erm... Mummies, just my point of view: I prefer to eat fresh food over heated food because they are much more nutritious.
For heated food, I prefer to heat it up using a steamer than the microwave oven.
I'm convinced that the radiation from microwave oven is not good for health in the long-term.
Everyday, I use an electric smart cooker to cook my boy's porridge. in the mornng, put the frozen vegetable stock and rice in, set the time that the porridge needs to be ready, it'd start cooking by itself when it has to, then keep warm until I get to it at lunch. I find this a very convenient way to let my boy eat fresh & nutritious porridge daily.
Every 3 days, I'd prepare a batch of vegetable stock, which makes the porridge super-tasty.
For LNY, instead of porridge, I steamed sweet potato and french beans to put in thermal containers. A simple yet fresh & nutritious meal.
vege stock example:can share how you make veg stock? what happen to the veg after that? feed baby w porridge? thks!
We are using Buffalo Smart Cooker, bought at Takashimaya. I like Buffalo as the inner pot is supposed to be very safe, unlike the non-stick type which may leak harmful chemicals into our food after some time.Thanks MieVee. What is the brand of electric smart cooker you using??
