Hey Everyone, Happy Friday! Today’s post is the second of my Series “Foodie Fridays”. (Check out the 1st post) Every Friday I’m going to feature food related posts and it may be a review, introduction or more. Just another thing to look forward to other than it being FRIDAY!
This month my son turned six months and it was time to give him his first baby foods. With my first daughter I made my own baby food from scratch but this may not be the case for my son (so busy). I do however manage to make avocado mixed with water in the food processor which is by far his favorite right now.
I first gave my son a tiny bit of applesauce but I figured let me try vegetables first. My usual go to baby food brand is Earth’s Best but while looking online I decided to try Babies R Us brand baby foods because it also happens to be organic. I picked up
I am so happy I did because I felt like the consistency was the same as earth’s best stage 1 foods. These two brands really shouldn’t differ all that much since stage 1 food is basically just one ingredient mixed with water. The bonus is that it’s cheaper while being organic. I’m a fan of these flavors. They are good picks because both have a creamy taste that babies can really enjoy. My son couldn’t get enough of it.
The verdict: Get this stage 1 food from Babies R Us especially if your short on time and can’t make your own baby food. Stock up because when I look to buy more they may be out of stock.
Be sure to check out Babies R Us daily deals.
In honor of National Moscato Day I want to tell you about Myx Fusions! I don’t normally go for products endorsed or associated with Celebrities but Myx Fusions is an exception.
Nicki Minaj released a refreshing fruit infused moscato beverage with three flavors in Coconut, Peach and Moscato, of course! I have tried all three flavors when they were first release two weeks ago at my local food store. The drinks are sold in New York for $9.99 and are available in a 4pk each contain 5.5% alcohol (soon to be sold worldwide). Needless to say I have been coming back for more since then, click here to find a retailer near you. I love Prosecco (a light, dry, fruity sparkling wine) but when I want something sweeter I pick up some Moscato (a light, sweeter, sparkling wine), you’ll love moscato if you are Riesling or Sweet Red Wine fan. Myx came at the right time, just as the weather begins to warm up and when people tend to pick up chilled fizzing bubble drinks. The Moscato flavor is blended with natural fruit juices that gives it that delicate sweetness. This flavor is very versatile, subtle enough to pair it with pasta, seafood dish or ending the night along with dessert. The Peach and Coconut flavor is what a summer fruity fizzing bubble drink should be! The Peach brings out the peachy aromas normally found in moscato but with a pop of flavor that’s fun and satisfying. The coconut is not something I thought would mix well but it works in so many ways. The coconut is not overpowering and accommodate the hints of apricot, vanilla and honey. As I was enjoying these flavors on many occasions it didn’t leave me wanting dessert afterwards, that’s saying a lot since I have the biggest sweet tooth. When I was in the mood for dessert it did pair perfectly with cookies or cheesecake. I hope Myx Fusions makes a larger version of the bottle because I can see it being used to make great mixed drinks, spritzers or tropical fruit sangrias. Bring on these delicious drinks, cheers!
