Friday Favorites- Lots and Lots of Food

That seems to be a general trend around here, doesn’t it? Between my mom and I, we subscribe to a lot of different blogs- food, fashion and everything in between. It’s awesome to see what other blogger’s are up to- it’s so inspiring!

A handful of blog posts that popped up in my inbox this week were so great that I just had to share them with you all. And it just so happens that many of them are food related. So get ready to drool- hope you enjoy!

I’m not a crafty person- it’s just not one of my strengths. I loved this DIY post from Skunkboy blog though- so many cute ideas! I especially love the homemade fire starters (shown above). Also, the colorful backgammon game is amazing!

Proverbs 31 Ministries: Why Did This Happen God?

unnamedLysa Terkeurst’s devotions are awesome- I’d highly recommend checking them out. I especially loved what she had to say about Philippians 4:12-13- a verse that can sometimes be tough to swallow, and is always tough to live out. Worth the read.

That’s it for today- have an amazing weekend!

Sweet Potato Hash

My Daughter and I- Sweet Potato Hash

Jordan found this recipe on one of her favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess and we decided to try it. We made it for dinner, because we love breakfast for dinner and it was quick and easy and very delicious!

I adjusted the recipe a bit, mostly for quantity, and we all loved it- I’ve made it several times already. The recipe says you don’t need to peel the sweet potatoes and I agree. I’ve tried it both ways and it’s just not worth the time to peel them, they soften up enough while cooking.

My Daughter and I- Sweet Potato Hash 1

Sweet Potato Hash

3-4 sweet potatoes, cut into cubes

1-2 tablespoons minced garlic

6-8 pieces of bacon, cut into pieces

1 onion, chopped

Salt and pepper

Italian seasoning

 

The first thing you’re going to do is quarter up the bacon slices and throw them into the heated pan. Let them sizzle and cook and smell up your place real good. While the bacon is doing its thing, you can chop the sweet potato down to bite size pieces. When the bacon is cooked through (not all the way crispy yet) drain the grease if there is too much. You want to have a few tablespoons left in the pan. If you’d prefer, you can drain the bacon grease and add some other oil. Toss in the sweet potatoes and cover.

At this point, cut up the onion and garlic and add to the pan.I like the potatoes to cook till they brown, which can take about 15-20 minutes. It depends on how many potatoes you used/heat/pan. Add in the seasonings and stir. The recipe calls for fresh rosemary, which would be good too. Let this cook for a couple minutes. While you’re finishing the rest of the meal.

In a separate pan, you can get your eggs going, so everything is ready at once.
