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...

      What would they do if someone showed up at their place with a laundry basket, broom, and dustpan?

      I was thinking this after the latest post. I wonder how many of their "patients" are still alive one year after their "treatment." I'd also like to know how many people begin actual medical treatment after leaving there. Eta my guess is not many. If they're deep enough into the woo to go there in the first place* they may dig their heals in further upon leaving. 
       

      *and wealthy enough. Even if they fundraise and sell everything they can to go down there there's still some degree of financial ability to do it. (On that note I wonder how many "patients" or their families come back to the states destitute. 

      Someone posted a link about this way upthread somewhere - a youtube guy who went searching to see how many patients who had started GoFundMes had evidence of being alive or deceased a couple of years post treatment. The stats were pretty much what you'd expect

      I find it strange having a name theme. I'm used to John and Jane happen to start with the same letter and since they stopped at two they technically had a "theme" but only because those were the names they liked. It wasn't some "we have to come up with a name we like that fits the theme." Maybe it's just me but I find it weird that so many second gen Kellers have an intentional theme. (Outside of bible names or something. Eta so I guess I'm used to "bible names" being a theme.  But starting with the same letter is weird to me)

      I think the whole idea of a “name theme” is kind of foreign to me. The biggest family I know personally have 3 kids. More than 3 is really uncommon here. Parents will usually gravitate towards somewhat similar types of names (in terms of social background connotations, modern vs. traditional, similar “vibe”), but I’ve never heard of anyone with a naming theme outside of FJ.

      Honestly, they could actually be working and still grifting for extra cash. We obviously can’t expect honesty or true transparency from them!

      I would almost be proud of them if they were pulling this off.

      We have such an obscure naming theme that I’m not sure if my partner even noticed I did it! The obvious one is that all of us have names that are technically biblical, but so common that people don’t automatically associate it. The other 2 things with my kids nobody has ever picked up on.
