A Giant Vat of Stew

As some of you may recall, I have this ridiculous tendency to make giant quantities of food. I don't know how it happens, except that I'm usually cooking for two and many recipes are feeding families of four or more.

In an attempt to save money, I've been using this "leftover" food to feed myself and the missus during our workday lunchtimes.

But I don't know what we're gonna do with the giant fucking vat of stew I made this weekend. I found this recipe on, of all places, the lid of a jar of natural peanut butter. It sounded delicious, and because it actually seemed quite small and sensible, and because I wanted a few lunches for us, too, I was foolish enough to double the recipe. I think maybe that's where it went so wrong.

It's difficult to present scale in the photo, but that's one of the larger Le Creusets available on the market today. To give you a sense of size, the kettle behind it is about six feet tall.

Yes, it's a lot of food, the missus and I will be well fed, and by the end of the week, we will never want to look at West African Peanut Chicken Stew again.

But at least if we want to stretch it, we can serve it over rice!

If you think it'll keep for 2.5 weeks, save some for me!
