There is a recipie for sweet potatoe fries on here that is very good. One of my other teams has a goal to try 2 spark recepies a month. Just had the fries 2 days ago, better than at the steakhouse!

Whenever I make meatloaf or pot roast or pork roast or anything of that nature, I always cook one potato and one sweet potato (in chunks) with the meat, and sometimes a couple of carrots, too. I think I'm going to try the sweet potato and cranberry bake recipe, and I might also try it with raisins substituted for the cranberries. (Or maybe in addition to.)

This challenge is making me want to get creative and cook things I've never cooked before. I really loved the brussel sprouts from the first week, though I never did buy any beets last week so I guess I'll be doing that particular challenge long after the fact...

There was much rejoicing!

Sweet Potato and Cranberry Bake
Cube 2 pounds of sweet potatoes. In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons coarse grain mustard, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, dashes of salt, pepper, and thyme. Add the sweet potatoes to the mixture and coat evenly. Add 1/2 cup fresh cranberries. Place in a baking dish. Bake covered in a 350 degree oven, for one hour or until tender. Bake another ten minutes uncovered to brown the potatoes.

I don't use a recipe, but I LOVE adding sweet potatoes to a vegetable soup/stew instead of white or yellow potatoes. Chick peas go well with sweet potatoes too..

As it happens I had already planned to make this sweet potato & chick pea curry tomorrow:

I'll use some other leafy greens instead of spinach as we don't have local spinach at this time of year but we do have kang kong, choy sum and a few others. Probably taro leaves would be my choice if I can find them.
