Mashed Sweet Potatoes with a Honey Drizzle
So yesterday I woke up with the mother of all migraines. I mean seriously!
The stupid thing lasted all day and in fact my head is still sore and foggy, but such is life. Luckily Jamison can work from home, so he stayed home, worked, took care of Alexis and did conference calls while I stayed in bed, only to arise when nature called and such. It was not pretty. My doctor's assurance that these things get worse as you grow older doesn't help all that much as you can imagine! ;oP
So there was no "What's For Dinner?" last night because well I have no clue what Jamison and Alexis ate. I'm assuming they did eat, but you know what they say about assuming! ;oP We will have "WFD?" today though so check back this afternoon!
Now let's talk some sweet potatoes shall we?
I love sweet potatoes! There are so many thing you can do with them and they are such a nice change, not to mention a healthier alternative, to your standard white potato. Mashed sweet potatoes are ridiculously easy to make, all while giving a bit of a wow factor and by all means sweet potatoes are not just for Thanksgiving anymore!
What You'll Need per Person:
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into rounds
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of honey
In a pot of water over high heat bring sweet potatoes to a boil and boil until tender. Once tender drain the potatoes and using a potato masher mash the potatoes until well mashed. Stir in and place mashed potatoes on a plate. Drizzle honey on top of each serving.
Notes: Sweet potatoes are sweet in and of themselves. The don't need a lot of sweetener and natural sweeteners (i.e. honey, natural brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup, etc.) are best. You could also add in a bit of freshly ground nutmeg if you liked.

Glad you are feeling better. Migraines are not the best company for anyone.

Yummy! I love sweet potatoes! We're having Salmon on the grill, salad or maybe broccoli and sweet potato casserole! For dessert we're having TWD's Summer Fruit Galette...........

Migraines are no fun. I've only had them for about 6 months, but I am not impressed!
