Thanks to Michigan Potato Industry Commission for sponsoring this post.
So far this month has been quite busy to say the least. Of course the holidays are always hectic, but my youngest son’s birthday is the 9th of December and mine is the 18th. And I just happened to be sick over the entire weekend of my son’s birthday so we had to delay his party.
And since I absolutely love any excuse to travel, I convinced my husband that we should drive to Nashville this past weekend to see one of Garth Brooks’ last shows of his tour. Garth is one of my favorite country artists and his show just happens to fall on my birthday weekend. So a win-win in my opinion! Thank goodness for grandparents who were willing to watch our three kids while we are away.
Anyways, now on to the recipe. As I often say, I love recipes that are not only simple, but also full of nutrition. This Potato, Bean and Vegetable Stew is the perfect comfort meal especially now that the weather has finally turned to “normal” Michigan winter weather. We thankfully had very mild temperatures in November and the beginning of December, but last week we received about a foot of snow and the temps reached the teens! But that’s okay for this snow loving Michigander because more snow equals better snow skiing conditions! Now time to warm up with this delicious potato stew!
Are your potatoes going bad too quickly? Check out this detailed list from Michigan Potatoes on how to properly purchase and store potatoes. Here are some that I focus on:
- Do not refrigerate potatoes, store them in a well-ventilated area but away from heat
- Do not wash potatoes until ready to use
- Store potatoes in perforated plastic bags or brown bags
- If green spots or sprouts begin to appear, cut them off before using
I’m thrilled to have partnered with Michigan Potatoes this year to bring you simple yet delicious potato recipes throughout the year. Check out Michigan Potatoes for more details about the various kinds of potatoes in Michigan as well as the nutritional benefits.
