I seem to have brought the rain with me... too bad. But that's ok. Will be in tonight enjoying a home cooked, not by me, meal. Yum.
Speaking of which, I thought I would share a recipe or two in this blog, and I'm going to start today with something I made up last night. I made up two things and together they were great, but for one I used a prepackaged spice mix, and I want to be able to list the ingredients of the spices, so I'll save that one for when I get home.
In honor of NaMoBloPop I'll name it SwePoPep
One baking potato (good size)
One sweet potato (approximately same size)
Microwave until done. (we have a baked potato button on our microwave so it's great)
Cut up baking potato in bowl (leave skin on).
Dig out flesh of sweet potato and mix in with potato.
While mixing add approx. 3TB butter, at least 1/4 tsp salt, and fresh ground white pepper (salt and pepper are both to taste).
At very end add in 1/4 or so pepitas (pumpkin seeds). Mix in.
Would likely be better if the pumpkin seeds were toasted a little, but I was trying to make a quick dinner, so no time for that. It was really good! If I do say so myself. That was my creativity for the day. I used what I had on hand, which is what I love to do.
