What to do with the pumpkins after all the catsess' posing?
The No. 1 Ladies Detective's Mma Ramotswe came to mind as she makes her husband those pumpkin stews.
To help with pumpkin stew inspiration, I based it on a Jallof Rice recipe.
One interesting part of this recipe was to fry three bay leaves with the onions.
The smell was worth the experiment and I think I will be doing this more often with recipes that ask for bay leaves.
The chicken was added with the pumpkins.
Just watching the pumpkin stew progress felt like I travelled to Botswana tonight.
Then I added the rice and liquid and the dish turned back into a Sierra Leone Jallof Rice.
A fun cooking night indeed.
