Fruits of my labor

When darling son came in late tonight after a gig at the local coffee shop, he needed a little something to eat.  I like to review what he has eaten and try to address what he needs most nutritionally.  I thought what he needed was some fiber (and a little beta carotene wouldn't hurt!).  I microwaved one of the little sweet potatoes I had grown.  So simple--just wash it, pierce it all around with a sharp paring knife, and nuke it one minute at a time till it's as tender as you want it, rotating each minute.  I think I cooked it 2 or 3 minutes.  I added butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  I also threw in a few pecan pieces from the ones we had picked up at the park. 
(Young women, you should be very suspicious of the character of men who will not for themselves pick bones out of fish, nuts out of the shell, or seeds out of watermelons.)


Incidentally, we had another lovely sunset this evening.
Good night!


  1. From now on, some pecans are going in my Sweet potatoes, why didn't I think of that. NEAT. I like that idea... Pretty sky. Mama said that was my special food as a kid, a baked sweet potato with brown sugar and butter.
    Pretty sky!

  2. Surely this is a site well worth seeing.
