Last night, we tried out Stockpiling Moms' Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew. I was a little nervous about this recipe since my husband isn't a huge fan of sweet potatoes. However, since we had a bunch of sweet potatoes on hand before I made JoJo's first batch of baby food, I decided I would give it a try. Since the recipe didn't seem to be overloaded with sweet potatoes, I thought it might have a fighting chance.
Now, the prep for this meal was super easy, especially since I prepared several freezer meals all at once. I labeled my ziploc freezer bag with the name of the recipe and noted that an extra cup of chicken broth would need to be added when it comes time to cook.
Although it is suggested to serve this meal over rice, I forgot to include this note on my freezer bag. I decided to make fresh bread in my breadmaker to go along with it, which turned out to be just fine. I may try serving it over rice next time just to see if we like it better.
The best news of all: my husband didn't even notice the sweet potatoes! Of course, I had to make a confession after dinner, only after I had verified a couple of different times that he really thought the recipe would be a keeper. So, I guess JoJo isn't the only sweet potato convert in our house now. :)
