A simple way to make breakfast for both baby and you.
It’s time for my baby to start eating solids, can you believe it?! Instead of buying pre made baby foods full of preservatives, I simply put aside a little of whatever I’m making for myself, blend and feed. Not only is is easier, its cheaper and much healthier. I don’t know what I would do without my trusty Ninja blender, it does it all. I can make dough, smoothies, juices and even grind meat with it. I use the single serve cups to make Jonny’s food, and whatever is leftover I cover with the lid and put in the fridge for him to eat later that day. I didn’t specify the seasonings because anything goes with oatmeal. You can use whatever you like, or you think baby can handle.
Since it’s super simple, I jazz it up with fancy dishes. The ones I use aren’t technically “dishes” at all, they are my Bijou Candle bases! You might remember me using them before in my DIY Honey Mask post, well this is another one of the many ways I like to reuse my Bijou again. My home was filled with the scrumptious scents of Winter Pine and Mulled Wine during the holidays, and it’s good that I’m able to keep these handy dishes after the candles burn out to use them around my home elsewhere. I have so many uses for these, and can come up with a hundred more if I had to. What are some of the ways you’d reuse your Bijou Candle bases? I’ll be sure to publish a post on all my additional ideas very shortly, but in the meantime I’d love to hear from you! I’ll include the best idea in my next Bijou post, and credit the guy or gal who gave me the inspiration!
Bijou’s entire holiday collection is on SALE right now! Be sure to head over and stock up on some of the classics. Winter Pine smells more like a Christmas tree than my real one! And Mulled Wine is a fragrance I use year round – it has hints of mandarin orange and is my absolute favorite.
