I have to admit, I am forcing the issue of autumn here. It is still in the upper 80's and humid in Atlanta but I am over it. I want the autumn to come. Not only am I planning another foliage trip but I am eating the typical autumn foods.
Locally, I found a super sale! I got three large sweet potatoes for only one dollar. Thrilled, I snapped them up thinking it was another autumn food I have been craving. In my opinion, autumn is the best time of the year for foods. Heavy, roasted, laced with garlic and herbs. So good.
I took these discounted sweet potatoes and cubed them up like home fries. I wanted it simple, after all, it was still too hot to labor long in the kitchen. I doused them with some salt and cinnamon and tossed them in the oven. They were fantastic. I ate them for a couple of days and they made perfect work food. Good find.
For my bedtime snack it was some store acquired pie topped with some store acquired almond ice cream. Simple, yet yummy.
