would you eat this?

African-Thai Stew

Not something you would typically see on our menu, but we have committed to week nine of "The Dinner Fix" by Sandie Richards.
If you haven't tried any of her meal planning cookbooks (I have all four) you really should.

I went out Monday after printing my grocery list for week 9 off the Internet and picked up all my groceries for the week. Now we are committed.

African-Thia Stew was our third nights supper served with fresh veggies and dip..

We loved it.!!!!!!!!!..
Well Jim and I did.. In fact Jim said it was the best supper he has had in awhile.. that might have something to do with the fact that he made it... but it sure was tasty.. And the kids, they ate it.. not there favorite but ate it just the same.


1 tsp olive oil
1 onion
1 large sweet potato (1lb)

2 stalks celery
1/2 of a small green pepper
2 tsp fresh garlic

3 cups chicken broth
1 can chunky tomatoes
1 can chickpeas

1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground Coriander
1 tsp tsp chili powder
2 tsp fresh ginger
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1tbsp lime juice

1/4 cup raisins
3 tbsp peanut butter
