Order turkeys NOW and a cool West African recipe!

Hi Folks-

And yes we will be having winter, apparently, here it comes. I’m ready mentally but obviously a little challenged practically, wore shoes without socks today and froze. On it, I have socks all set aside for the morning! And we have meatball subs tomorrow, so you know that will warm you up!

We are selling turkeys this year, Stonewood Farm from VT, $4.99 a pound and they come in the following pound increments: 14 to 18, 18 to 24, 24 to 30 and 30+. The bummer is that the DEADLINE FOR ORDERING A TURKEY IS THURSDAY NOVEMBER 2nd ! I am super sorry about this, due to some missed communication we have a very short window for ordering this year, please let me know asap if you want a turkey!!

Two weeks from our wine tasting, still room. Really fun event, $25.00 per person, tons of wines to try, fabulous food. 12% off 12 or more bottles ordered that night, all the wine comes in the week before Thanksgiving. Who can’t use a case of wine over the holidays? Great for drinking, great for presents! Saturday, November 11 from 3 to 7 pm. Tickets available at the store.

In my never ending search for delicious, new and healthy food I came across a recipe for West African Peanut stew with Chicken by Mark Bittman. He’s a favorite of mine and I generally like his recipes. The weird thing is I was talking with Steph at work this morning, checking in on the weekend and part of what I always chat about is what I cooked. When I told her she looked at me and said “Really?! So did Dave! (her husband)” So that’s just weird but apparently we are on the same wave length and her family loved it too!

Delicious! A pretty quick preparation too.(I changed it up a little) I used 4 cups of stock, a 28 can of diced tomatoes and 28 oz can of whole plum tomatoes. Cut thighs just in half, and fished out just before pureeing a four cup measure full of the soup and adding back in. Shredded the chicken a little and garnished with cilantro and peanuts. (oh and used a quarter cup natural peanut butter and quarter cup jiff for the full half cup measure)A Big hit!

I’ve been thinking about doing an actual food blog and so I’ve been trying to photograph my food, because I love to see what I am making and I figure other folks do too. I made the peanut chicken stew Saturday night, thought of picture taking around four on Sunday and when I opened up the container, no veggies left, no chicken left just broth, not really photo worthy:-). Peter really liked it too!
