It's Good Friday morning, out of bed at 6 (yes I know)... and after being up for awhile checking email and news, I wanted something substantial, but healthy for breakfast. Except for grocery shopping late last week for a dinner party... it had been a bit since I had shopped, so ingredient options were limited. Luckily it all came together.
By starting the sweet potatoes in the microwave, the time from idea... to on the plate was just about 20 minutes and my sweetie loved it too.
