Sweet Potatoes, the Only Way

The rich and nutty flavors are not laden with gooey marshmallow and brown sugar in this simple recipe (though nice occasionally at Thanksgiving). Here's to a beautiful fall and healthy cooking!

Skillet Fried Sweet Potatoes

(a cast iron skillet is best)

- Slice sweet potatoes in desired chunks

- Drizzle olive oil and toss until well covered.

- Sprinkle cinnamon and seasoned salt.

- Toss several more times. The potatoes may need more olive oil.

- Cover the skillet with foil. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

- Remove from the oven and remove foil.

- Toss several more times and place back in the oven.

- Bake for 15 to 20 more minutes or until the potatoes are soft when forking.

Happy Canisters

After years of searching high and low for perfect canisters, I discovered these. It seems we limit ourselves and the creativeness in the kitchen when we box our kitchen in by labeling with unimaginative labels such as "Sugar" and the like. What are your thoughts?

My Heart ---
sings in volumes
in deepest notes
and harmonies not written

Some day
these volumes
these notes
these harmonies
will be played with dedication,
"My Love".

The Frost - 11, November 2012

Glitters on my windows.
The day is before me.
The engines roar.
The hum of cars - all are hurrying.
We bustle on our way to make the day into what we've planned.
The Frost, like an envelope to open - the wrappings of the gift - the day.

Alone - 5 May 2011

Tears fill our eyes.

What do all these emotions mean?

What joy or sadness encourages a swelling of ever ready springs? 

We cannot comprehend all sadness deeper than a desert well.

Sadness plunges us down.

I lay here
on my bed
earbuds snug in my ears
Coldplay's, "The Hardest Part" streaming

It's quiet outside
nearly eleven
the week is before me
stretched out
like a white canvas
ready for color
borders, definition.

A Very Useful Prayer Guide

A friend sent me a useful prayer guide that I simply must share with my friends and family here on my blog. If you are married, this will hopefully be of help to you or if you have a desire to be married. It's not to early to start praying for your future spouse.
