Taking a World Tour this Weekend!

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I have a lot of sweet potatoes.

Random announcement, yes. But it's true. And it's the reason I'll be taking a world tour this weekend....because at a certain point, you get sick of sweet potato fries and mashed sweet potatoes, and you have to try something different!

Three friends have unloaded garden extras that are getting ready to go bad. They've been properly stored...but it's time to use 'em or lose 'em!

In addition to my abundance of sweet potatoes, I have TONS of lentils (both red and green); lots of rice, a couple of pounds of tomatoes, one or two large eggplants, several acorn squashes, and a big butternut squash. And I will put them ALL to use!

This is what I will plan to cook this weekend (and this will be my CULINARY world tour!)

IF, after making all of these OTHER dishes, I still have veggies left over, I will also make either Ratatouille (http://recipes.sparkpeople.co

=1511049)

After Sunday, my freezer will be VERRRRRY full. And I will have NO EXCUSE to eat out! (In theory....)

Super excited to try some of these recipes! And hey, check out the similar ingredients in all of them! I might need to reinvest in some spices by the time I'm finished, but my taste buds should be satisfied no matter WHAT I'm craving for a LOOOONG time to come!!
