As point of reference, my more-recently deceased grandmother didn't really talk to us much, either, but that was more because 1) she was stoic and conversationally unemotional; 2) she was fairly deaf; and 3) she never really believed that Long Distance could be used casually. Long Distance was hand-pressed linen, not throwaway Kleenex. So, she would absolutely talk to us in principle; she just didn't in practice.

So: my younger daughter has done so well with cereal that we're upping the ante. This evening it's sweet potatoes, baby. So this afternoon I made the baby food version of sweet potatoes, and she'll be dining like royalty tonight! For $5.97 of organic sweet potatoes and a few ounces of formula, I filled 74 ice cube tray squares with orange puree. Considering a meal is only one square right now, maybe two as she gets bigger, I just made at least 50 meals for less than $7 of raw ingredients. Take that, iconic Gerber Baby face.
