I’ve been on a brief (and by brief, I mean an entire summer-long) blogging hiatus, and I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me. It’s just that… gosh, when you live in Minnesota, summer becomes such a… such a rare novelty, such a tremendous gift after a solid six-and-a-half months of malicious, fear-inspiring, soul-squashing winter, and the feeling of freedom that blew in along with warmer weather and outrageously-sized mosquitoes quite simply made me throw almost all responsibilities out the window.
I really had no choice. I was just a victim here.
But NOW. Now that it is September, I have decided that my summer-frolicking ways must shortly come to an end, and I must face at least some small measure of discipline once again. Which leads to me, sitting here eating a bowl of oatmeal at 8:32pm (that’s another story), about to tell you about this stew, this beautiful, glorious stew that I first stumbled across on Cookie and Kate.
This African Peanut Stew is brimming with robust, peanutty deliciousness and lots of delightful veggies that make for the perfect beginning-of-fall meal.
I made my own adaptions to the original recipe, including upping the peanut butter factor, adding sweet potatoes, substituting kale for spinach (because kale = yuck in this family, no offense to you kale lovers out there), and a few other lil things. If you’re one that loves savory peanut dishes, this stew has your name written all over it.
In the words of Nacho Libre, “It’s fan-TASTIC!”
Hope you enjoy, friends!
Oh, and I pinky-promise that the next time you hear from me won’t be in another four months. Mmkay?
