thanks for startin this today PA. I was hoping it'd get started soon.
I'll attempt my girlfriends Moroccan chicken
after I go to the market and grab 3 items in it. I won't utilize the pita bread part though, I'll be putting this over the potatoes instead.
I already did sour cram mashed potatoes and creamy baby peas early this morning, I was bored.
they're in the frig for tonight.
Since the chicken recipes calls for two lemons, I'll buy extra cause for dessert, I'm doing ginger bread cake with warmed lemon sauce poured all over the top.
Coffee maybe for him, if he's in the mood, water for me, I'm always in the mood
Lulu, not to worry that you bought pre made, like we haven't all done that. DH bought a truckload of Lean Cuisines yesterday for his lunches at work and now my freezer's stuffed with premade stuff, so see, it's okay...

Pa Baker,

Sweet potato and peanut soup:

Cook one medium chopped onion, 1 tsp brown sugar and 1 tsp salt in 2-3 TBS butter until soft. Add 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and a couple of large cloves of minced garlic, and cook 1 minute more.

Add 3 cups of chicken stock, 2 cups of water and 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin. Stir in 3 TBS of creamy peanut butter.

Simmer until potatoes are tender, 20 minutes or more.

Puree all in blender and return to pot. Stir in 2 TBS of fresh minced cilantro ( I usually cheat and use the kind that comes in a tube)

Check the seasoning and serve.

This will have a little bite so drop the cayenne lower is your family doesn't like spicy soup.

Mozart.

Your soup sounds wonderful, I'll have to try it!

We're having Delmonico steaks smothered in onions and steak sauce with tater tots (from frozen) and lima beads cooked with diced bacon.

You mean you don't make fresh tater tots from scratch?

Enjoy the soup.
