Sweet, Sweet Potato
A friend and I tried a delicious pizza this evening from RealSimple magazine. The toppings: thinly sliced sweet potato and shallots, tossed in olive oil and seasoned with fresh thyme, salt and pepper. Spread the ingredients over a whole wheat pizza crust, and bake in the oven. When pizza is halfway done, dot the top of the pie with cubes of brie (as much or as little as you desire).
Serve with a side of mixed greens, tossed in a balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing.
While this pizza is meatless, I think a nice spicy sausage would compliment the sweetness of the sweet potato and the creaminess of the brie.
For dessert, hold your friend's three month old baby on your shoulder and nuzzle his soft cheek while you burp him.
