Baking Sweet Potatoes in Cast Iron Skillet

Baking sweet potatoes in a cast iron skillet makes them extra delicious. These I cut in half as they were so big. A 400 degree oven. An hour or ’til fork inserted tells you otherwise.

The apples were added later. They were on my Wordless Wednesday this week and yes, that’s Irish butter in the center of each Granny Smith Half. No other seasoning.

The Man Behind Me Laughed as I Photographed This

Last Friday I was invited to Grandparents’ Day at Michael’s school. I had such a wonderful time seeing his classrooms and meeting his teachers- but before that –

Coffee and doughnuts were served.

I had to look twice at the bottom left doughnut and yes, I pulled out my phone to document what I saw. The man behind me was laughing. I said, “I’m a blogger. I’ve never seen one before.”

Yes, it’s a Bacon Maple Doughnut! I didn’t sample it, just photographed it.

Beet Root Fries

Red beet fries. Just around the corner, I saw a painted sign on the glass window of Schoene-Burger and asked my son if he’d get some to try with me sometime. Tonight he came home after work with an order of Beet Root Fries. Still hot.

They were delicious.

Mushy Peas

Mushy Peas. Never ate them or even heard of them until today. We were browsing in World Market. I’m sure making them at home is superior to the canned version. A recipe below. Hoping blog readers who are familiar with them will leave a word.

Looked up Mushy Peas on Wikipedia
