Old-Bay Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Jan/Feb 2010, pg. 105
Old-Bay is a great spice! I had never heard of it until I lived on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and then it was in everything! Now it’s a staple on our spice rack.
P and I don’t eat a lot of meat anymore so on Sunday’s we usually cook a larger cut of meat that will provide leftovers throughout the week. This past Sunday we spatchcocked a chicken and grilled it. For our sides we had steamed broccoli and old-bay roasted sweet potatoes.
A low stress, simple Sunday dinner. Everything was delicious, especially the potatoes! Sometimes old-bay can be overpowering, but the natural sweetness of the potatoes paired well with the amount of old-bay. We had leftover chicken and potatoes, that we made into chicken salad for lunches and I used the potatoes in Monday’s dinner; black bean burgers. I used the food processor to blend the black beans and potatoes, spices, and an egg. The burgers were also delicious!
The old-bay roasted sweet potatoes were great as a traditional side and an additional ingredient to black bean burgers.
Broiled Pineapple with Frozen Yogurt, Jan/Feb. 2010, pg. 65
A lovely dessert! It was simple and quick. The broiled pineapple with frozen yogurt was a perfect last course to a Sunday dinner. But nothing beats a fresh pineapple, no additions required for me to eat the whole thing in one day or one sitting. It’s been known to happen.
