Cold Weather = Hot Stew

The nerve of November to bring cold weather!  It has gotten me in the hot soup/stew mood and I finally made some the other night.  I flipped through several cookbooks and recipe binders I have and found one that I couldn’t remember if I’d made before so checked it out.  So Monday night I crafted some of Cooking Light’s Dijon Chicken Stew with Potatoes and Kale.

It took a good hour+ and was well worth it.  First, the aroma of leeks and garlic made my mouth water then the simmering for ‘way too long’ made it nice and warm in my apartment.  When I got my first taste, despite my tongue getting burnt (OW!), very tasty!  The recipe says it’s 6 servings and that is a good call.  I have been enjoying leftovers for lunch all week.

My next thought for soup/stew is either posole or a lemon-type soup a friend gave me a recipe for a couple years back.
