Between all the yogurt-making, the pickling, and the training-for-a-marathon (as well as, you know, the usual working all the time thing, and the hundred irons in the fire I'm always juggling), I haven't had much time to cook anything compelling enough to blog about.
Basically, it's been Sandwichfest 2012 around these parts. And while I know I could scroll through pictures and depictions of a variety of sandwiches every week, I doubt that you, my sophisticated and food-curious readership, feels the same way.
So today, I offer you a simple love note to a product I recently discovered and quickly developed a passionate obsession with: Sweet-potato butter.
It's like pumpkin butter, but better. Because it's sweet potato, because it's perfect with peanut butter and ground ginger on toast, and because it's got just enough natural sweetness to complement the awesome weird root-vegetabley thing sweet potatoes have going on. I noticed it while scrolling through one of my favorite websites to impulse-buy stuff from at 2am on a Sunday night, Nuts.com and just knew it had to be mine.
This stuff + Me = Match made in heaven. On toast. With peanut butter. Did I mention that already? Because seriously.
Have you ever had sweet-potato butter? Do you even like sweet potatoes? They're one of my favorite foods on earth, no lie. I could eat one every single day of my life—and thanks to this stuff, I basically am! (It's a pretty fascinating life I lead.)
