Potatoes My Sweet

November 19, 2013

in breakfast, salads

Move over, melons. Here’s my newest obsession…


…sweet potatoes! Bought a bag from Trader Joe’s yesterday and can’t stop eating them.


One for breakfast this morning, topped with cottage cheese…


…and another in a salad (identical to Monday’s).

Do you bake, or use the microwave to cook the sweet potatoes?

(I’m currently obsessed, as well. I *ALSO* bought the trader joe’s bag of sweet potatoes. I’m really into using the crock pot to cool them. Slower… but SOO tasty and worth it!)

These were microwaved but I’m gonna roast the rest!!!

I second the crockpot method. My 2 year old and I fly through them, so I just stack a bunch in the crock pot and then reheat them when I need. Hardly any mess and I don’t have to keep an eye on them!

Great idea! Will try!

sweet potatoes are the best! I also love topping them with trader joe’s baked beans or almond butter.

The first picture in this post is the prettiest picture of a sweet potato I think I’ve ever seen. (I, too, love me a sweet sweet potato.)

Ahhh…I’m drooling over that first picture and I have no idea why! It looks amazing. I know what I’m making for dinner…

Currently, my “melon” is persimmons – I’ve been trying to limit myself to one per day, but this was the first year in my life that I’ve ever had them and now…I can’t stop!

Joy the Baker just posted a persimmon grilled cheese recipe! http://joythebaker.com/2013/11/persimmon-prosciutto-and-brie-grilled-cheese/

I roast them in the toaster over. Peel comes right off. Sometimes I eat them straight up, and others I will season, and/or make mash potatoes (i.e. cream, butter, cheese).
