Chunky TVP Stew, Okra & Biscuits

Fried Okra and Biscuits

This was a total comfort food meal for both of us. This was last night's dinner but we had it for lunch today too so here are the pics. New camera too (Rebel XTi)! I've been pretty busy and I'm still learning all the functions on it but I'm pretty happy with it so far. It's been about 3 years since I used an SLR so I need to refresh my camera knowledge again since this is a dSLR.

On to the food! Chunky TVP stew with potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onions, green pepper and hungarian hot wax peppers in a tomato base. I think Mindy would like this... Mindy are you reading? :)

Half the okra was breaded in a batter and the other half was batter and then panko. I like the ones with panko better. Homemade "buttermilk" biscuits on the side. This is only like the 4th time I've ever made biscuits and I'm getting better and better at it each time. I never made biscuits before moving here. Biscuits aren't really a big thing where I'm from originally (downtown Toronto). I do love them though. Next time I make them I'm going to have "sausage" and white gravy with them.

And a bonus pic from last week... SHADOW who is truly the best dog in the world. No really, he is!

Aren't biscuits like savoury scones? The stew looks sooooo good.

Yeah, I guess they are sort of like scones. They're flaky and really crumbly (made with vegetable shortening).

Hello! I stumbled upon your blog today and I need to ask, is the stew your personal recipe or from a cookbook? It looks so delicious I am inspired to make it ^_^
plus the puppy is so adorable!
