We also like stew-type food here in the UK. Our party meals are generally chili con carne and beans, curry, spaghetti bolognese or pasta. Hav to be a bit careful with things containing nuts as friends have allergies to same, but otherwise we're good to feed an army.

I love reading your posts. They are fun to look at.

This recipe sounds delicious. I often use curry and peanut butter for different soups/stews and serve with rice or millet.
One of my favorites made recently is a sweet potato and kale curry soup using peanut butter. I did not use coconut milk, but chicken stock for the liquid base.
