African Spinach & Peanut Stew
3 large onions
2 tbs olive oil
2 lbs ground beef
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 packets frozen spinach thawed and drained (if you choose to use fresh simply sauté it down with onions at the beginning.)
2 tbs garlic minced
Curry powder (curry powder is really a mix of seasonings like coriander, turmeric, pepper, ginger, etc any of these can be used to taste)
2 cups creamy peanut butter.
In warm oil add garlic and onions and sauté until transparent. Add ground beef and brown. Add crushed red pepper or cayenne pepper, and curry to meat mixture. After browning meat, onions, and seasoning add thawed spinach to sauté mix. After spinach is mixed in add diced tomatoes, and finally peanut butter. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes and serve over rice.

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder. . . no doubt. Distance has been an interesting teacher in many other regards as well. Specifically, when it comes to what God is teaching us minute by minute, hour by hour. This year Nate & I have experienced so many parallel emotions and reactions despite the distance or the difference in our daily duties.
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
10 If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
