So… we have crossed the big pond and survived the 9-hour flight to Seattle (where we will be spending the first half of our holiday). We are all settled in and cozy, (despite our 4 a.m. wake-ups), and are adjusting to things here in the States…
…like huge grocery stores with hundreds of options, big vehicles on wide streets, loads of space, and anything you want whenever you want it (I’ve seen more “open 24 hours” signs in the past few days than I’ve ever seen in Europe)! There is really no limit to what you can find here, and how easily you can find it.
This is why I am always stumped to find that there are actually a few of my favorite European things that you can not find here in this “land of plenty” (nor find a suitable alternative)… like my Beaba Baby Cook!
For mothers who prefer to cook their own baby food (which, let’s be honest, I only do about half of the time), the Baby Cook is a must-have. It steams your food and then purees it (all in the same container). Easy Peasy!
Beaba, (which is French, I think) also makes handy little containers for freezing the food. Plop the containers of frozen food into the Babycook and it will defrost and reheat as well.
It’s brilliant. What do these American moms do without it? Make a mess of their kitchens with dirty pots, steamers, and blenders? I should start importing these…
