I suspect I'm not the only one that is glad the holidays are over. I wouldn't define myself as a Scrooge, but I do find the time between Thanksgiving and New Years to be a bit overwhelming. This year was particularly crazy as we flew both kids across the country, and had one too many mornings with a toddler on East Coast time.
Before I move on and start researching what miraculous recipes are going to keep me warm and happy in January, I wanted to share my favorite recipe from the holidays. It's a really good looking sweet potato dish, and it doesn't involve marshmallows or cinnamon. Yuck!
It's from Smitten Kitchen and it's a savory, crispy roast that you can garnish as you wish. I used crème fraîche and chives.
The annoying part is slicing all the sweet potatoes but enlist help, and poor yourself a drink. It's heavy in a decadent holiday-way, but doesn't feel as belly-stuffing as mashed potatoes. It still warranted a freezing walk on the beach though!
