Hello, hello, hello! I’m beside myself today because I’m so anxious to share with you about my sweet potato (ones with orange flesh) SUCCESS! I used this recipe with one slight modification. A reader (sorry I don’t remember who) suggested heating them in some water first which I did just until the boiling point. I took them out, dried them off and then carried on with the recipe. So delicious and healthy and I seriously may be eating them everyday. YUM!! Oh and the homemade Cowabunga Beef Burgers that I made to go with them were delicious as well. To simplify things I used some bottled BBQ sauce instead of making my own. I also especially loved that they weren’t made with egg which meant my son could eat them as well, a nice bonus!
We are starting to see some nice weather this week reaching highs of almost 18 degress Celcius, woohoo! You’ll see, over the next couple of weeks, my menu plan slowly change to adjust for the nicer weather (it better get hotter than 18 though!). I actually use my slow cooker more in the summer time than winter which I think is opposite to when most people use it. I love not having to turn on the oven in the summer. So between the slow cooker, the grill and salads I’m one happy lady :)
Although do you think I might be a little premature talking about summer when my backyard still looks like this :(
Okay enough talk about me. I’d love to know what your favorite recipe of last week was. Any highlights?
