Ask a Stupid Question – “Have you put on weight?”  “Yes.  I only weighed 7 pounds when I was born.”

On February 28 I posted a recipe for stuffed sweet potato.  It was lovely and delicious and  a little too work intensive for me.  So I simplified it.

Trouble began in Dodge when I served it to some company in its simplified version, assuring them that the recipe was on the blog.  They couldn’t find it.  And they are some rather bright people.  My bad.

What I served them was simply the mashed sweet potato with the additives.  I put the whole thing in a casserole dish instead of stuffing the innards back into the potato skins.


3 or 4 sweet potatoes, baked and mashed

1/4 t smoked paprika

1/8 t cinnamon

1/8 t nutmeg

1 T coconut oil or olive oil



minced onion

crumbled bacon

cream cheese


Bake the sweet potatoes.  Mash and add the other ingredients.  Serve the optional toppings on the side, or not.

Nice to put into a casserole dish in a warm oven until the rest of the meal is ready to serve.



This is a picture of this dish from the February 28 blog entry.  This dish has the taste of sweet potatoes that are doctored with sugary things, but aren’t.  The spices bring out the natural sweet taste of the sweet potatoes.

My favorite son-in-law, Scott, had seconds of these.  He knows how to win a mother-in-law’s heart.

Oh, dear.  I’m becoming my mother!
