It was a very rainy Spring Break week.  We had already planned a quick trip down to San Antonio.  The last time we were down there- we only had 2 out of three kids and one was still in a stoller.

We hit Bluebonnet Cafe (pie), Guenther House (pioneer mill- great breakfast), the missions, Alamo, Riverwalk, Pearl Brewary (and CIA), a movie, HEB, Magnolia Cafe (another great breakfast), Natural Bridge Caves, and a short stop in San Marcos.




Upon returning, I had to work a catering event plus we had basketball games.  Here is a quick stew with ingredients I usually have on hand.

Chickpea Stew

In a skillet, soften:

1 diced onion

1 shallot

In 1-2 Tbsp olive oil

Add :

2 cloves diced garlic

1 tsp minced fresh ginger (I often keep a tube of minced ginger in fridge)

1 Tbsp curry powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp brown sugar

2 chopped carrots

(you could also add diced potato, frozen peas, eggplant….)

In a crockpot add:

1 can coconut milk

2-3 cans drained and rinsed chickpeas

Then add onion mix from skillet.  Simmer on low 4 hours.  Serve over rice.
