Thank you for yesterday—for the recipes, for the lack of judgment when I admitted how very low I had somehow managed to sink, for the encouragement. I remain grateful for all of you.
I now have a new subfolder in my recipes folder, called Sweet Potato Riot. This amuses me. I can’t wait to try more of the ideas y’all gave me. Yesterday I ended up starting to make stock (I just happened to have a turkey carcass in my freezer; doesn’t everyone?) for soup and then I remembered that it was 95 degrees outside and that I didn’t want soup. I froze the stock and made a sweet potato hash (suggested by one of you! though I just threw one together rather than following a recipe) (onions caramelized in some bacon, then sweet potatoes, turkey sausage, green pepper, and sage/salt/pepper added to it and fried up), then topped it with poached eggs. The perfect comfort dinner! And now I only have 100-something more recipes to go.
And now, back to pushing onward. I’m over at Feel More Better today, talking about the best way I know to find lost happiness. Time for me to get back on that particular horse. I’ll bring the sweet potatoes.
