First comes Plum, then comes Plush

December 16th, 2007

For today’s Daily Dish I’ve got some yummy holiday dishes from Plum Organics and a special deal on one of my most favorite baby products, the Plush Pad from Ah Goo Baby. Plum Organics’ recipes are sure to please even the pickiest baby if they’re anything like the organic baby food I reviewed back in March. Yum, yum, yum!

Ah Goo BabyAnd once your little one has “processed” these tasty recipes you’re going to wish you had your very own Plush Pad from Ah Goo Baby. I reviewed the Plush Pad back in August and I have used it every day since. It’s been perfect as a second changing table in our room when our toddler is asleep in the baby’s room. This is definitely one of my most favorite baby products. Ah Goo Baby is coming out with three new designs (Blue Lagoon, Spa, and Vintage in blue) all coupled with the supersoft white minkee center panel. These designs won’t ship until January but you can pre-order a Plush Pad at 10% off plus FREE USPS Priority Mail shipping! This special promotion for Daily Dish readers expires December 31, 2007. To order, send an email to info@ahgoobaby.com with “Boutique Cafe Pre-order” in the Subject line.

And now for those recipes!

Plum OrganicsSweet Potato Turkey Casserole
1 tsp olive oil or vegetable oil
1/8 cup diced onions
1/4 cup finely chopped roast turkey
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup finely chopped cooked peas (fresh or frozen)
pinch finely chopped rosemary
4 oz Plum Organics Sweet Potatoes puree (or you could easily make your own)

Heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until soft, about 2 minutes. Mix in the roast turkey, peas, rosemary and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

For babies 6-9 months, puree the whole meal in a blender. Add extra water if necessary.
For older babies, roughly mash the mixture in the pan with a potato masher.

Warm Plum Organics Sweet Potatoes separately and fold into final blended mixture or mash. Allow to cool and serve. TIP: For a healthy, hearty toddler meal, place the rough mash in a small oven proof dish, top with cheese and bake at 350° for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Allow to cool thoroughly and serve in a child-friendly dish.
