When I made this for lunch one day, no one knew what to expect from it. It ended up being quite good! I don’t even like ham that much and I still enjoyed it. The sweet potatoes are just that: sweet. Paired with the salty ham and seasoning, they go well together. Next time I would like to good the sweet potato even more and see if I can brown it more. I was worried about ruining it, but I think it could be even better with more caramelization.
I have decided to start a new series on here. I have a Fudgelet Food series and I obviously have been sharing regular updates about him, but now I’m “slowing my roll” on those. As I’ve mentioned before, his food tastes have turned more into ours so he doesn’t really get much special food anymore. And as for the months, he is about to be two years old, so I might not have a regular updating series for him. Still figuring that out a bit. But, I figure I still need a place to share Fudgelet stories, whether it is food or just kid-related. So, Fudgelet Adventures are starting….now!
Are you feeling soupy? I posted a soup recipe Monday, and here is another one. Both are quite different, even though both represent complete meals (with a couple additions–this one did well with some fresh baked bread on the side). Sure, it’s not corn season anymore, but I think you could modify it and do it with frozen corn. The extra steps for the roasting/corn juice did not make the soup any better. Because of this, I will share what the original recipe said to do, but also tell you what I would do for next time.
Today I am sharing something I made that turned out mostly well. Next time, I would use less liquid, and scale back the recipe a bit since I think I needed a 6 quart crockpot for the amounts given. But, it was still tasty, so I am sharing the main tips from it today…
