I actually saw another blog had posted about this today, and I know this isn't anything original, but did you know that baked sweet potato fries are the bomb in early spring? Peeled and sliced like fries, tossed in olive oil on a baking tray, seasoned with salt and pepper, and put in a 400 degree oven for about thirty minutes. Make sure to flip them once or twice so all the sides get baked. These hit the spot for both adults and little babies. Well, maybe not little babies. Toddlers who eat everything in their path, like the kind I have. And paired with some steaks on the grill (from Cedar Hill Farms in Amenia), caramelized onions doused with pomegranate vinegar, and some horseradish cream to dip the fries in, that is what I call "being in business." Isn't it disgusting that I even put a pat of butter on the steak? I guess I was thinking I was in Peter Luger's or something, excepting the service was super attentive. Not that I don't appreciate a surly waiter. I do. I was one once!
Oh yes my Dear, that is the way to do it! Thanks for the great idea when I am artistically at a loss!ReplyDelete
Dane - I feel artistically at a loss, truly! But these are so good and easy I figured I'd talk about them.ReplyDelete
Making this tonight.ReplyDelete
Sweet potatoes are on sale around here. Nice looking ones so I bought a few pounds. Will bake some in halves, too, for dessert.
(No, it isn't disgusting, at all. Butter rules!)
Auburn - Yeah, they're on sale here, too! Yum. (Butter does rule, though I eat quite a bit more than I should!)ReplyDelete

Tigress - The steaks are explicit, but yes, I think the fries everyone can jive with!ReplyDelete
It's been over a week since you posted these, and I still can't stop thinking about them. I love sweet potato fries, but haven't ever made them. I'm going to stop by the sweet potato store today!ReplyDelete
