Kung Pao Chicken and Vegetables

I have been in a food rut lately. So I apologize for the lack of recipes recently, but I don't feel like I have been very creative in the kitchen. We have reverted to pretty simple foods while we introduce Hadley to solids. One can only bake sweet potato fries so many ways and I'm not sure if you want to read about all of them.
