A recipe without a picture again

Sweet Potato Casserole

Three pounds of sweet potatoes
One stick of butter
1/2 cup of heavy cream
1 tablespoon cinnamon
10 gratings of fresh nutmeg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum

For the topping:

Bake the sweet potatoes in an oven until they are mushy. I do this for about an hour at 350.

After the potatoes are cool enough to touch barely, slip off the skins and make sure you get all the syrupy stuff that comes with them. Mash them with all the other ingredients. You can melt the butter, but the potatoes are so hot that the butter will melt.

Put in a 9X13 pan. It does not need greasing. Add the topping. I did 1/2 marshmallows and 1/2 pecans.

Bake 350 until the marshmallows are puffy and golden.

It is interesting to see who goes for the marshmallow (in my mind, the kiddie side) as opposed to the praline side (more adult).

Recipe without a picture

So I am all about veggies lately. I like to make all my veggies with bacon. Here is my default recipe:

Veggies by minjenah
Two strips of bacon
1/4 cup of onion
1 pound of veggies (like kale)

Fry the onion and bacon together until the onion is soft and the kitchen smells like bacon. Add the veggies and three ice cubes. Cover tightly for ten minutes. Season to taste. YUM

Meat and three

So lately, I have been all about the meat and three. That is a meat and three veggies. This was tonight's selection:

Flat Iron steak, twice baked potato, turnip greens and crowder peas.

I really like my vegetables with bacon. All of them.

Why is this $111? How is this different than a French Press? Is it the nifty neoprene jacket?

Pizza Night

So yohboh asked for pizza tonight. And I complied. It costs less than a dollar to make two pizza dough rounds. I created a new pizza:

Goat Cheese and Caramelized onion pizza
This is a goat cheese and caramelized onion pizza with garlic oil and cracked black pepper.

I could give you a recipe but I just did.

Yummy! The pizza was so good.
