My First Blog

Hello Peeps.  It's me, Dingbat.  Thought I'd give this a go and see how it works out.

Had my kids home this weekend, and it was great to see them all.  Was talking to Amber and Cortney, and they suggested I start a blog and see how it goes.  Well, this is it!  I watched Julie and Julia last night and kinda got inspired. (thanks Cortney!)  And I have an idea that I may try in the vein of that movie, but I need to get someone's permission first.

Amber brought a great recipe idea for lunch yesterday.  Ross and Tyler grilled out some sirloin's and eggplant, and Amber and I made roasted sweet potatoes that were out of this world good.... Here is a basic recipe from my memory:

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Prepare a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil sprayed with Pam.

5 lbs of sweet potatoes, washed and diced into aprox 1" pieces (skins on)

Drizzle with Olive Oil liberally, and kinda stir them up.

Sprinkle liberally with Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper

Top with about 1 1/2 of fresh shredded parmesan cheese (not the green can but it might work)

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

Pure Perfection!  I have always had "sweet" sweet potatoes, IE: butter and brown sugar subsitute, but this was even better.  sweet and savory.  I give Amber the credit for that one, but I'm sure stealing it!

Well, I guess this is the end of my first blog.  Hopefully you will leave me a comment so I can see how this works, and get some feedback and input as to what you would like to see here.

Thanks Everybuddy!!!  Peace Out!

Hi Dingie!!!!
Good luck in you new cyber world "home". Just what I needed was another blog to follow. LOL
This is a new type comment box for me. So maybe I'll get this right. ;>)

PS I wanted to sign in with my wordpress acc, but it keeps telling me I don't own that identity! But I DO!! And not sure this is going to work either, cause it just bought me back here again. We shall see!

oh I meant about 1/2 cup to 1 cup Sorry about that. Thanks for pointing it out. it doesn't take much cheese. you don't want to drown it in it.

Thanks Billie!!! Glad to see you here. You will keep me straight! LOL Love ya!

Instead of the tin foil sprayed with pam, you might want to try the nonstick reynolds wrap. It's nonstick and works great.

These crackers look good. I have always been going to try to make some but never have. You've motivated me, Dinah! Often when I've put cheese on burgers in the skillet or it's run out of a grilled cheese and gotten cooked in the skillet I will peel it off and eat it and think, yep, this is good! Bo Bo is quite the little Sous Chef, isnt he?
