Mango Curry Chicken from Tall Grass Kitchen
oil for sauteing
1 onion, chopped
2 cups green veggie (broccoli, asparagus, peas,etc.)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 T curry powder
2 chicken breasts, chopped
1 fresh mango, diced (or about 1 cup frozen)
1 can sliced peaches in juice (I used scissors to chop them up in the can)
2 T brown sugar
juice from 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
1) Saute onions in oil until translucent. Add additional vegetables, and cook until crisp tender. Add garlic, ginger, curry, and cinnamon. Stir until fragrant.
2) Add chicken pieces, and cook until beginning to brown.
3) Add peaches (with juice), mango, and brown sugar. Cook until bubbly, and chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve with rice.

Tropical Fruit Pops by Angela McLeod
1 can of coconut milk (preferably without bpa in the lining)
1 large chunk of fresh pineapple (about 1 cups worth)
1 fresh mango peeled and cut into chunks
Puree this with immersion blender and pour them into pop molds. Give them a few hours in the freezer and they’re super refreshing and not to sweet.
Baked Apples from Wholesome Baby Food submitted by Laura S
1. Core apple and leave peel on

4. Bake in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes or until tender; be sure to check on the water level.
