for lunch

starting early because it takes a long time to cook

planning ahead



......................................


saute pan with lid......medium to large.........preferably non-stick




the lid does not necessarily have to fit well but it has to sit correctly or inside of the pan


the steam or condensation that forms goes back onto the pan and not all over the stove


.......................................................


one large sweet potato, yam or two small

cut into approx 1/2 inch slices...it does not have to be exact


cut up or slice one onion

put in one garlic clove....leave whole to remove later or cut up

a spoonful of butter....optional

pour in some olive oil.....a very large spoonful or more

salt and pepper generously

cinnamon, cumin, allspice, nutmeg....optional or just a pinch

some people do not like too much nutmeg....a tiny pinch will be plenty


...............................................


put the stove on very low


put on the lid


watch Perry Mason

do you love Della, too....I love her clothes


stir initially and during the commercials to keep coating the pan and the sweets with the oil and the spices.

......................................


key ingredient.....try to have the television near the kitchen because we know what happens when we try to cook from the front room


.........................................................


after Perry eat lunch or turn off the stove......remove the pan from the burner to a different location.......and eat lunch after the dog park


.............................................


seriously, this is as simple as cutting up the sweet potatoes, add olive oil and salt and pepper, put on a lid and turn the stove on low and watch perry.




oh, and it is delicious


..........................................................


adjustments may have to be made for a particular stove, pan, lid....sometimes I vent the lid with a spoon,.......and the temp degree for individual stoves for low.


..............................................


this is basically slow roasted sweet potatoes in olive oil..........



optional.....to remove the peels, they easily fall off at the end of cooking


.....................................


I hope you like it....I think it is really easy and delicious.......cl
