This is a sweet potato week for me. I am on a kick for sweet potatoes. Dinner last night was a peeled diced sweet potato drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper, wrapped in foil and baked for an hour. I had some green beans and a dollop of cottage cheese with it.
Recipes I have in mind for sweet potato week are: Kale, white bean and sweet potato soup; sweet potato and black bean quesadillas; sauteed sweet potatoes and spinach; and I am toying with the idea of making a sweet potato hummus.
Last night I bound off the edges on another organic cotton baby sweater. Today will be weaving in all those pesky ends, choosing a button and sewing it on, and crocheting a button loop. Then it will be finito and off to the recipient. I am quite ready for that to happen.
Eldest Daughter was down to visit a couple of Saturdays ago. We had a nice visit. We shopped for Halloween goodies to mail to the Little Buddy and his stepsisters. I found a darling long sleeve red tee at Target that read Here Comes Trouble and had three cute monsters on it. Naturally, I had to buy it for him.
I think he liked all his Halloween goodies.
And the Little Buddy sure loves Pez — what kid doesn’t?
And last but not least, the Little Buddy decided to be a pirate for Halloween again this year. He loves to say AAAAARGH.
