As I mentioned a few weeks ago, my house has been stuffed to the gills with farm-fresh vegetables ever since Southern Prince Charming and I joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture plan). I’m constantly looking for new ways to prepare some of the vegetables that we get a lot of, including sweet potatoes. [...]
Southern Prince Charming and I have been looking for ways to both support the local economy and branch out, in all ways culinary.

SPC is more of a “Meat and Potatoes” guy, so getting him to venture to a Thai restaurant was a bit of a challenge in itself. However, after going to his favorite local chicken [...]
