Guess who’s 30 weeks pregnant today?
(If you’re wondering why I am nearly headless in this photo, it is because the full shots came out too dark, and my editing software is on my laptop which is being repaired at Apple. I promise that the top of my head is still in tact.)
I absolutely cannot believe it. 30 weeks seems like such a milestone to me. I truly feel as though I’m on the home stretch now!
On a complete different note, I don’t like football.
It bores me to tears, and if I must watch, the only team that I like is the New York Giants (I did grow up in New York after all).
On Saturday night, Michael wanted to watch the Panthers game, so I plopped down on the couch next to him with a bunch of things to keep me busy.
Among those things was a stack of my favoritecookbooks.
While the game was on, I sat on the couch and noted all of the recipes that I want to make soon. One of those recipes was a side dish from my Trader Joe’s cookbook called Sassy Peach Sweet Potatoes.
I made a few tiny modifications here and there, and they came out great!
Sassy Peach Sweet Potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil 1 red onion, sliced 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes 4 cloves fresh garlic 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth 12 ounces of Peach Salsa (Any kind will work, but mine came from The Peach Stand) salt and pepper (to taste)
In a large pan, heat the oil and saute the onion over medium-high heat until tender (about 5 minutes). Add the garlic and saute for an additional 3 minutes. Add the sweet potato cubes and saute for about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and salsa. Bring to a boil, reduce, cover, and simmer until the sweet potatoes are tender (about 10-15 minutes). Remover the cover and increase to high heat if there is a lot of liquid left over. Boil until the liquid reduces to a glaze. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
This recipe is perfect for this time of the year, and you can adapt it to your tastes by choosing a mild or hotter salsa.
Are you a football fan? What is your favorite sport to watch? My favorite sport to watch is definitely baseball. I love it!
My sister is coming over soon, so I’m going to bid you farewell.
Have a great day!
