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.

I intended it to just be an easy A class, but instead it got me really interested in gardening, landscape, plants, and growing my own food. Every few weeks we would get plants to take home, most were University of Florida hybrid plants that they had created. I lived in a townhouse, was … [Read more...]
