Move-In Meal

20140531_212045

I have got some kickass friends! Saturday we drove to two locations, loaded up two trucks full of heavy furniture, unloaded them, and moved Chelsey into her new house all in a few hours. A mowed lawn and unpacked bags later and we were ready to go. Fast forward to some quick cookie making, Carl cutting watermelon in my lace/tulle apron, some oozing burgers, and drool-worthy smelling sweet potatoes and we had a meal and little party with Cards Against Humanity funniness. Boom what a successful day! By the time we cleaned up the sweet potatoes were demolished, the turkey burgers crushed and all the cookies had disappeared. Not to toot my own horn, but these were hands down the best sweet potatoes I’ve ever made. And the burgers were Chelsey’s call, based on a recipe from Carl, which I posted a month ago.

Pepperjack Red Onion Turkey Burgers

Sweet & Savory Bacon Sweet Potato Bake

  • 4 Sweet Potatoes
  • Sea Salt
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 5 Slices of Applewood Bacon

Let’s Make it Happen: I began with the sweet potatoes since they needed to cook longer. Peel sweet potatoes. Thinly slice each potato. Layer onto a baking pan. Sprinkle with sea salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. Add a dash of coconut sugar. Toss it all together. Cut bacon into little squares. Interspersingly add these to the potatoes. Bake @ 350 for 40 minutes or so (mine I cooked to tender), making sure the bacon is cooked completely. Halfway through give the mix a turn. That is it! So easy. Once you’ve put them in the oven get to work on those burgers. Fire them up in the grill or add them to another self in the oven to bake at 350 as well until they are no longer pink in the center. There you have it, a wonderful move-in meal.
