Before shopping day, I had a few random ingredients in the kitchen and was trying to figure out how to put them together. Typed the list into recipe zaar and got this recipe. It was super hearty and filling. Would be good after a Winter day of working/playing outside.

I've been making this ever since it was published in Cooking Light. Most people do not notice the peanut butter.
