Happy Memorial Day, even though it’s a little late. We spent the day, actually almost the whole weekend, at Tahoe, which is our habit. This year, though, we had no family with us. It was just Yes!Chef!, me and Obie T. Dogg.
I love the idea of Yam/Sweet Potato Fries. I just don’t like many of the recipes that I have found. Reason: Wimpiness.
I can’t think of any good reason anything or anybody should be wimpy.
Wimpy is not a good quality and is definitely not a good quality when it comes to food. Name me one food that is described as wimpy and is something you would cook? I can’t think of any.
I love soup…especially homemade soup. I think there is nothing more homey and comforting than soup. It makes the house smell good. It warms me up. It can be easily shared. It can be frozen for a later date. It’s economical. And, it gets better the next day. What more could you ask of food?
Now that Fall has officially begun, it’s time to put on the warm socks, colorful sweaters and curl up by the fire. Heat up a cup of apple cider and put a stick of cinnamon in it while you are waiting for the Crashed Sweet Potatoes to finish cooking. Can you tell that I love fall.
Here in the Sierras, we like to head out to Tahoe and get some pictures of the fall leaves, and maybe some bears.
A couple of months ago we were contacted by a cookware manufacturing company called Magefesa, located in Florida. They had somehow read our blog and wanted us to test some of their cookware and then review it on the blog. We were very happy to oblige and they sent us a complete set of their Ecotherm Plus cookware, a lovely pressure cooker and a set of frittata pans. Several weeks later we arrived home to see this on our doorstep.
Well, today is National Watermelon Day. What a coincidence that I happened to make Watermelon Gazpacho yesterday and it is perfectly chilled and ready to eat tonight. It’s quite warm here in the Sierras, so maybe it will help cool us off.
