Mashed Sweet Potatoes

mashed sweet potatoesI grew up thinking that the only way you could eat sweet potatoes is with marshmallows on top. I am not a big marshmallow fan, so, as an extension, I did not really like sweet potatoes. Now that I have learned some new ways to make them, I love sweet potatoes and eat them nearly every week.

Our October recipe of the month is a delicious sweet potato recipe – Mashed Sweet Potatoes. You peel and dice the sweet potatoes, boil them until they are tender, add some cream cheese and then mash them. If you would like, you can top them with some bread crumbs and broil them for just a few minutes until the bread crumbs are golden brown.

I like this recipe because the flavor is not too sweet. I really like this recipe because it uses sweet potatoes, which are a rich source of nutrients that our bodies need including fiber, vitamin A, and potassium.

Luscious, Juicy, Sweet Strawberries!

Strawberries are a great buy right now in grocery stores. The best prices I have seen are $1/pound, but most places are under $1.50/pound. According to the news, this is because Florida and California strawberries are hitting the stores at the same time this year. In a few weeks the local berries will be in season also. Get ready for some good eating!

Strawberries are naturally high in fiber, vitamin C, folate, potassium, and antioxidants, and they’re low in calories and practically fat- and sodium-free. Ounce for ounce, strawberries have more vitamin C than citrus fruit.

Strawberries are perishable so you have to choose carefully and protect your investment once you get them home.
