I'm home from Utah after a very long day of air travel yesterday and then a 2 hour drive from Portland that put me home at 1:30 am. I didn't mind waking up early to a massive snuggle pile in bed with Sam and both kids. Clearly, the kids had a great weekend with Sam who kept everyone busy and happy, and managed to clean the house top to bottom, do all the laundry, and prep dinner for tonight despite having a rainy weekend with no backup. I always have a heavy heart for a few days after leaving my mom and siblings behind, but it's very good to come home, too.
Here's a "What's for Dinner?" from a simple meal I made last week. I have even more Utah photos and stories to sort through and post in the next day or two.
I totally made this recipe up. I'm crazy for sweet potatoes, so I put them in everything I can think of. Just try it, okay?
Mix refried beans (I like the spicy ones with green chiles) with 2 mashed-up small baked sweet potatoes. FYI: I baked the potatoes the day before and they were in the fridge.
Pile a scoop of the bean/ potato mixture onto a corn tortilla and sprinkle with shredded cheese. My grocery store (Hannaford) has these great hand-made style corn tortialls that are thick and chewy.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until heated through and the cheese is melted.
