Sweet Potato Stew

I made this last night for dinner. It was pouring rain the last couple of days and definitely chilly out. We’ve officially turned on the heat in the house this last week and of course Cooper’s room gets the coldest as it is the only room with wood floor. He has a rug in there, so I am on the hunt this week for shaggy rug to help fill his room with more fluff. Precious baby kicks his little blankets off while sleeping so I have to dress him very warm, although every morning his little fingers are still cold. We’ve discussed getting a space heater for his room but my husband puts his foot down, “no accidents” he says. We aren’t traveling down that road. I must say it’s hard to argue that, as much as I want to make his room a furnace in the dead of winter, a space heater is not the route.

Here is last night’s dinner from scratch; no fuss meal, quick and easy.




  • 1 lb cubed steak
  • Dry Kidney beans
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes
  • Diced onion
  • 2 large tomatoes diced
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp Chili Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • 8 oz water

Toss everything in a pot and let simmer for 3 hours until thickened and sweet potato is fully cooked.

Had this with my left over quick no yeast oat bread.
