Not DPIAT's Peanut Soup!

I got this recipe from our very own @Palimpsest who shared her mother's recipe for West African Groundnut Stew  with us on a DPIAT thread. Apparently the Phillips family has special sacred peanut soup every year for Thanksgiving. I found Beall's recipe thinking it sounded interesting and was disappointed to see it was basically a cream of peanut butter soup, meh. If I were at a restaurant and they were known for it I would give it a try, maybe if it had tons of garlic it would be okay. The recipe was one of those a little of this, and some of that type recipes which I like.

     I decided to skip the meat and I added tons of veggies.  It was delicious, and I will be enjoying it for lunch this week. We are expecting seven inches of snow tonight so a spicy hearty soup will hit the spot.

I'm so glad you tried it and eat it in good health.  That does look really good and I hope it tasted good too.  Yes, that recipe is distinctly a little bit of this and that and I usually leave out the meat too.

@MarblesMom my mother's recipe ended up in a DPIAT thread.  I managed to find it though.

I still can't stand that DPIAT has soiled the memory of my native area's signature dish.

FYI: if anyone is every in Leesburg, Virginia, go to Leesburg Restaurant and have their peanut soup. Amazing. Maybe try one of their milkshakes too.

I googled to see whether they had a recipe online.  Have they changed their name?

Beall's famed recipe looked very bland.

Yes! They recently underwent a complete renovation and must have changed the name. 

Hope they didn't mess with the peanut soup...

      Glasgow residents, do you have hate preachers using your city as a personal pulpit, too?

      Not that I'm aware of, I hope not.

      Bestiality is actually illegal in Washington (it's not in many states), so charges would have been filed.

      That said, I predict Kelly will be married to Natty Darnell within a year. Scott will insist on it.

      If that happens, Ol Scottie needs a new picker. God forbid, he let Kelly pick her own husband. Hey Scottie, I picked my own husband and we have had 24 years and counting of wedded bliss. The kicker, my husband isn't even Christian!

      You're a perfect example of the vast limitations of these tests, and the reason why they should not be used to qualify or disqualify anyone as belonging to any particular group! It sounds like your great-great-grandpa was accepted as Apache by the Apache community, and that your great-grandma grew up in that culture. There's a reason tribes don't accept DNA results for membership. It's absolutely possible to be a member of a group via adoption, marriage, etc. rather than DNA. In fact, DNA (in the context of these tests) is just looking at patterns common to certain groups of people who inhabited certain areas at one time. It's basically telling you, "Your DNA matches about 17% with what we've discovered people from X region tend to show." 

      In the 18th and 19th century, many Irish people married French Canadians, and many more Irish orphans were adopted into French Canadian families. They were raised French, and the majority of them forgot their Irish heritage. Depending on the location

       and random chance, it's possible that a few generations later you could have French Canadians who were actually mostly of Irish descent - and yet culturally speaking, they were 100% French Canadian! 

      The tests are a lot of fun, and they can rule out certain things at a broad level (I remember one particular woman who was adopted and raised believing she was part Native American, but her test came back 50% Japanese, and she went on to discover that her birth father was, in fact, Japanese) - they can also provide clues ("Hmm, my test came back 25% Jewish, maybe that rumour about Grandpa So-and-So was right"). But they absolutely cannot define your identity! Reality is far messier than that!

      Yes, you do, to the extent that you would be able to draw a conclusion about their ethnicity (which is another issue altogether). 

      I love that you used the Irish/French Canadian example because that's the other side of my family! My dad is Irish, Quebecois, and German. He's much more Irish than German or Quebecois, but he qualifies for a German citizenship through a heritage Visa. We eat almost exclusively German food, even though we don't live in a German area. It's weird what things get passed on to the next generation. Like fry bread and pow-wows from the Jewish side, haha! 

      ETA: You're correct about Great Grandma. Culturally, she lived 100% Apache.

      It just seems like a well educated, worldly man searching the internet for a fairly uneducated, submissive, sheltered wife should be a massive red flag. It should be a huge red flag to fundies, but apparently if you claim salvation your creepy behavior will be ignored. 

      If he should up at our house my uncle would show him his gun collection and escort his off the property.   There is something WEIRD with Hammer.  

      My guess:   Mental Health issues.   

      I feel for Meredith.  She looks like a delightful young woman.   Instead of barefoot and pregnant for the past 6 years she should has been President of her sorority, moving into her first apartment (which you know would look incredible and decorated with the best DIY, flea market finds and a lot of her creativity and ingenuity ), and buying her first car.  

      Her parents royally screwed her and her siblings.    If farming is their goal the boys (and girls) should be at college majoring in agricultural science to learn everything they can on how to successfully run a farm. 

      This situation makes me want to cry.
