“All grandchildren are brilliant, beautiful, and take after their grandmother.”
*** A note of caution. This entire entry, except for the amazing recipe, is pretty much a lie. All will be made clear in tomorrow’s blog post. It will be something about telling the truth or paying attention. Both rather good things to do. ***
On to today’s entry –
My grandchildren teach me so much. In the past they taught me how to text using the microphone on my phone, and how to call for a Lyft driver. And now, one of my adult granddaughters is sharing recipes with me. She is, obviously, an amazing cook.
The recipe could actually be titled Em’s Sweet Potatoes. They are. She is. She actually shared this recipe, with a picture, in a text. I asked her if I could
steal use the recipe. She said yes. I made the recipe and my sweet husband did something rather unusual. He took seconds. They are that delicious!
sweet potatoes, two to four
equal parts honey and olive oil
sprinkle of cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Peel and chunk the sweet potatoes. Toss them with a mixture of honey and olive oil. To give you an idea of the amounts – I had two largish sweet potatoes and used 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
When the potatoes are coated, spread them on a baking sheet. I lined my baking sheet with foil. Sprinkle the potatoes lightly with cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Bake for about 25 minutes.
This will now go into the recipe file marked, “Make Again, Make Often”. Maybe I’d better start such a file. Just saying.
