Rockin Moroccan Stew....

....saves the day.

I think I have mentioned before the importance of freezing meals. I had a fantastic morning, followed by a not so fantastic mid morning faint/legs giving out thingie and hitting my head (on the driveway? car?). Either way now I'll never be a teen model.....sigh.

So I came in, put my feet up and my wonderful hubster brought me some juice and promised me a dinner out. Well I got to thinking, and I realized not only would I much rather save the money and have a nice meal out when we are on vacation, but also I had some of this in the freezer. It has been so long since I have made it I am not sure of all of the modifications, but I can tell you that I used sun butter in place of the peanut butter, and I most likely doubled the spices. It is one of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes, and that it is an excellent meal on it's own, or served with rice and chapati bread.

What a life saver! Now all I have to do is read a book, get some rest, and heat up dinner whenever the mood strikes me. Jaime Oliver said something on the season finale of "Food Revolution" that stuck with me....not of course enough for me to remember it verbatim (blame it on the head injury). It went something like this "You CAN do it, within the time and in budget".....and it was an ah-ha moment. That is exactly what I want this blog to be about. Just reaching other people and letting them know they can eat healthier, not go bankrupt, and teach their children to do the same. Simply put that's it. I'm not a super Mom by any means. I have days where I am not at my best, and don't have the energy or time to cook. By planning ahead I avoid filling my body with junk and YOU CAN do it too.


  1. Dear Mama,

    I love your blog. And you. I have spent the past few (30) minutes going through some old posts of yours (while I should have been cleaning the apartment) and looking at recipes because I need inspiration. You inspire me.


  2. Toni,
    We seem to have quite a few things in common. I love YOUR blog, and you....Also, I write my blogs while I should be cleaning, so it seems only right that they should be read in place of cleaning.

  3. Oh,my dear, I hope you are feeling better! So sorry you hurt yourself. Please let me know if there is anything at all I can do for you.

  4. I am feeling much better, thank you. I spent all of yesterday resting (read bored out of my mind) and this morning I don't feel wonky at all.
