Cinnamon BS Sweet Potatoes

Hi Friends 🙂
First of all, check out this tulip:
It just keeps growing and growing! I just can’t bring myself to trim it yet, I like that (for once) I am able to keep flowers alive in my house! I usually have such rotten luck with plants.
Thanks for the compliments on the Cupcake Hat Katie did such a nice job on it! Yesterday a stranger stopped me in the mall and told me she liked my hat — how nice!
I was getting more holiday shopping done last night and had a short amount of time to throw some dinner together. We had some leftover ham slices and I had bought sweet potatoes to go with them — but I really didn’t want to wait an hour or so for them to bake in the oven (even though an oven baked sweet potato is one of the most glorious things on the planet!). I opted for sliced sweet potatoes — which would roast much quicker than a whole one.
After preheating the oven to 350 degrees, I scrubbed, peeled and sliced one large (LARGE!) sweet potato. I tossed it with some canola oil and threw it in a dish. After 10 minutes in the oven I tossed the slices, and then baked for 10 minutes more. Then, sprinkle on some brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and pepper:
And after 10 more minutes, voila!
Delicious roasted sweet potato pieces. I know, I’m not reinventing the wheel here, but just a few ingredients really make the flavors pop! (The more I look at the pictures, it looks like an apple and not a sweet potato, but please take my word for it) 🙂
These are called Cinnamon BS Sweet Potatoes because they have Brown Sugar on them, but also because this recipe is pure BS. But not as bad as this:

 

I’m sorry, I don’t remember where I saw someone else post this recipe, but it is hilarious! And yes, it is on the Food Network site!
Yep, this is a quick post — busy weekend for me coming up and I’m trying to get a thousand things accomplished before then. (For the millionth time, bloggers who post daily or more than once per day truly have better time management skills than me — I don’t know how you do it!)
Enjoy your day — and tell me about your favorite-quick-and-healthy-meal.

    I love roasted sweet potato slices–they make for a great quick side dish. When I’m crunched time when it comes to cooking dinner, I usually prepare a small pot of bulgur, and toss it with whatever veggies, nuts, and dried fruit I have on hand. Drizzle with a little lemon juice vinaigrette, and we’re good to go!

    Have a great day 🙂

    Those sweet potatoes did look like apples!

    That bacon recipe is so funny. I have a recipe for early morning bacon. I think I’ll submit it.

    I love that reference to a “recipe”! I have seen girls make oatmeal and put a dob of nut butter on it and call it all kinds of things OTHER than oatmeal. But hey, whatever works. I am guilty of calling a stir fry all kinds of things too when really, it’s just veggies sauteed up. Your sweet tater and apple dish looks fabulous!! And it IS a recipe.

    Cute hat (again)!

    And bloggers who blog every day…part lunacy, part commitment, and part I dont know…I am in the every day camp and many days I do think I am a lunatic for doing it daily but I do it anyway. That would be the definition of insanity 🙂 lol

    I love that hat, too. I haven’t posted for weeks, myself. I’m writing finals and haven’t even started Christmas shopping. ‘Tis the season to be busy and have to do list a mile long, I guess. 🙂

    mm this looks great!! I love quick meals!! Usually sandwiches or pancakes are my go to quick meals!!

  6. Katie Says:

    One of my pet peeves is people calling things like that bacon a recipe. Rachel Ray, no less? That’s just pure silliness.

    I can’t believe someone complimented your hat in a store! That just made my morning, so thanks!

  7. Shanna, like Banana Says:

    Cinn apples are sort of perfect any ol’ time huh?

    My to-go meal is either popcorn (yes I know, terrible) or cabbage slaw stir fry..yum!
