1) Husband cooking dinner
2) Vegetables that taste like dessert
This recipe and blog post involve both of those anomalies. Husb has been on a sweet potato kick lately. He found a simple recipe online and has made enough for a dinner and leftovers for him to take w/ him for lunch the past couple of weeks. I'm not a huge veggie fan, but these are seriously delicious! A vegetable that tastes like dessert = a bold statement coming from this sugar lover!
2-4 Sweet Potatoes (depending on how many you're cooking for)
Salt & Pepper... if you want
Husband w/ a cute backside (Don't have one of those handy? Bummer.)
With the skin still on (we're bein' healthy here, remember?) dice up your sweet 'taters into little cubes. Or if you are feeling like tricking someone into thinking they are fries, cut them so they look like french fries. It makes no difference what shape you choose.
|Husb in the kitchen. Wearing J.Crew chino shorts. *sigh*|
|Sweet potatoes are ugly little suckers before they're cut up. But colorful!|
|See the skin on? That's what gives them a little crunch!|
|Action shot! Can't take these when its just me in there cooking.|
|Husb is the worst about remembering to pre-heat the oven. That was my job as sous chef!|
- Burgers (beef or bison)
- Turkey melts
- Breaded chicken breasts
- Or, if you're weird like us... spaghetti! We did this on Sunday. Odd pairing, but still good.
best vegetables to eat. "They're loaded with carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber" according to what I've read. Of course I had to research this wonder veggie after hubbs first made this recipe. This is one instance where something is too good to be true... but its true.
Healthy and nutritious does exist.
I've seen the light... don't believe it? Then try this one out for yourself!
