butternut squash and spicy chilli
2 small butternut squashes , halved lengthways and seeds scraped out
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion , chopped
2 red chillies , deseeded and finely chopped
2 tsp ground cumin
250g lean beef mince
2 tbsp tomato purée
410g can kidney beans , drained and rinsed
half 20g bunch coriander , leaves chopped
50g spinach leaves
Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Rub the squash with a little oil, then roast them on a baking tray for 45 mins until soft.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan, then fry the onion for a few mins until soft. Stir in the chilli and cumin, fry for 1 min more, then add the mince, browning for 3-4 mins. Stir in the purée and beans with a splash of water and season. Warm through and keep warm. Or cool, freeze for up to 1 month, then defrost and reheat.
Scoop a little of the soft squash flesh out to make a hollow, then stir this into the chilli with half the coriander. Fill the cavity of each squash with a quarter of the mix, then scatter with the remaining coriander. Dress the spinach with a drop more olive oil, season and serve alongside the squash

Meals for a 10 month old?
Gavin just had his 9 month well visit and his pediatrician did tell me that he needs iron rich foods, as my breast milk is no longer supplying what he needs. So Haley does need iron rich foods, but that doesn't mean she has to have meat. She can get protein and iron from other sources, just be sure she gets a little each day.
I totally stole this:
Foods that are a good source of iron include:
lean red meats, including beef, pork, lamb
beans, including kidney, lima, navy, black, pinto, soy beans, and lentils
iron fortified whole grains, including cereals, breads, rice, and pasta
greens, including collard greens, kale, mustard greens, spinach, and turnip greens
vegetables, including broccoli, swiss chard, asparagus, parsley, watercress, brussel sprouts
chicken and turkey
egg yolks (which Haley can now have, Gavin just had some Saturday and LOVED them)
dried fruits, such as raisins, prunes, dates and apricots (soften in water first, then toss in the blender)
