I’m trying to get this recipe to you in between taking care of a sick husband and a stir-crazy toddler…envious of me right now???

Didn’t think so!

Ok, here it is!  My new “go-to” stew!!!

It looks like a lot of ingredients, but it’s a really easy recipe to throw together…literally, just throw it together!  Feel free to modify, if you don’t have shallots, use an onion.  If you don’t have quinoa, try brown rice.  If you don’t have almond butter, use peanut butter.  No coconut oil?  Use olive oil! I’m pretty sure this recipe is fool-proof!
