Karl’s Minced Cottage Pie

Jan just had two temporary crowns put in and is eating soft food. While she had smoothies and blended Fishyssoise the first days, she wanted something more substantial by the third day. The last time she had a crown put in, I made her Shepherd’s Minced Pie.

Karl’s Sweet Potato Mash

I am making a Southern-ish buttermilk roast chicken, this kind of main dish calls for a sweet potato side. I could have done just a simple roast potato, but I decided spice up a mash. The question is, of course, what spices? Today, I chose ginger, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.

Karl’s Mashed Yams

Yams go very well with ham.  They also cook much more quickly than regular potatoes. This makes them perfect for my time-delayed dinner. We are going out to a movie and I need to do the prep before we go, but have everything pulled together quickly after we get back.
