So my appetite is officially back…thank goodness!
And with these babies, who could resist?
I got totally inspired to make these yesterday morning, I was standing on our back porch with a cup of toasty green tea and honey. Sniffing the steam on stop and appreciating our first frost in my husbands flannel bathrobe and my worn slippers. I am feeling fall. Right now even, with my windows cracked so I can hear the leaves rustling, I’ll peak out the window to see Evelyn dive bombing into our freshest leaf pile made just for her. Yeah life is still good on this side.
Now that you have a feeling of my lifestyle and where I am sure you have found yourself a time or two, I got this awesome surge of energy in the afternoon to make myself a superb fall lunch. Nothing like a couple of sweet potatoes to set the tone of this prime weather.
I am not sure if its because its a fall harvest crop, the fact that it has that bright orange hue when you slice it open, or because of the nice sweetness when you bite into that makes it so fall-ish. Maybe it’s all of the above. But anywho, I got inspired to make some stuffed sweet potatoes with a nice homemade honey dressing to it.
Let me tell you, it was divine.
So good and satisfying because of the amazing colors of nutrients bursting from each bite.
Yeah I was satisfied and I was glowing afterwards, I hope it has the same affect on you!
