It has been a pretty slow year so far. Since Dec 28th I have had a cold. Not just one, but two. The first one was all about the throat and coughing, and the second one, that overlapped the first, is all about the nasal congestion. So I have been pretty low energy and tired the past three weeks. Blah! Thankfully, I’m at home today, having a bit more of a rest after a busy weekend.
I did find a little energy to make a sweet potato pie (recipe from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook). I have never made pie using a veggie, but it was delicious. Probably because there is a lot of brown sugar in it. I did get to learn how to make a burnt butter sauce, which was something I thought was going to be difficult in my head, but turns out it is pretty easy.
Tonight I made a Balsamic Caramel Chicken with Turnip and Sweet Potato (Key’s to the Kitchen). It too turned out pretty good, just need to make a couple tweaks when cooking turnip, they take longer than the sweet potato! The skin was delicious though!
Well that is about all the energy I can muster. My nose doesn’t seem to be able to take in any air and my head is in a fog. I think it’s time to nasal spray it up!
