Seafood Stew

May 06

I’m excited to share this month’s recipe from the Secret Recipe Club. I was paired up with the Cookaholic Wife. I love her blog design– it has a similar color scheme to mine, and I really enjoyed digging around for recipes.

At first, I was set on making something with bananas. I have a bunch of bananas a little past their prime, and I found some delicious recipes- pumpkin banana bread and chocolate chip banana muffins- but then I found this– Seafood Stew. This resulted in an immediate change in plans!! I had almost everything for the recipe, so it was perfect to make for dinner. I paired it with garlic monkey bread, which will be on the blog later next week.

Enjoy the seafood stew!
