Sweet Potato Hash

Can we please just take a moment to revel in the fact that I GOT MY NEW CAMERA! My photographic fast has come to an end. My life is complete again.

The best part of the new camera? Finally getting to use the new macro lens that My Mama sent me for my birthday. So. Stinkin. Excited. See how amazing it is:

Speaking of blogging more, I am finally able to put up this gem of a recipe. I originally happened upon it by accident. A creation that came out of no time, no food in the house, and no interest in getting into a long and involved meal.

The Hubster tried the hash last night and said it was magical. Perfect even. The flavors were dancing on his tongue in a way that he hadn’t experienced in a long time. He gave it 10 stars. And literally spent the entire meal obsessing over how good it was.

But don’t take his word for it. Try it for yourself.

  4. Reply I just found your blog, and I'm excited to try some of the recipes! We're not vegetarians, but we try to only eat meat a couple times a week. Looks like you have lots of great recipe ideas for me! I think some of my best meals come from scavengering around our kitchen when we have few groceries and little desire for a complicated meal. This has sounds fantastic, especially from your husband's description!
