Two Dinners with Family

Jerry's mom spent the night at our place on Friday (being in town for Jerry's niece's wedding the week previous, and before being dropped off at the airport super-early Saturday morning), and I made a new recipe for dinner that I was really happy with: African Peanut Stew.

I recommend it highly. It's a different set of flavors than we usually eat, and it was actually pretty easy to make. There are a whole lot of ingredients, but the actual cooking is all just "add this set of things, cook for a 5 minutes. Then add these other things and cook for 3 minutes." If you do all the prep the night before (as I did), it comes together pretty quickly. And it's very easy to make it dairy-free, soy-free, vegetarian, etc. Good stuff! (And a lot of it.)

Then on Sunday night, because my mom & Larry are in town looking after my niece, to visit with them and celebrate Jerry's new job, we took them out for a nice dinner at Kachina, which is a southwestern place over in the hotel across the street from the mondoplex. (It's been on my "try this sometime" list for a while.) The food was very good. The service was a little leisurely. It's a little pricey, but we had a lovely dinner.

And afterwards, Monkey and I got fro-yo. Yay! :D
