So, since pomegranate season is drawing to a close, today seems like the perfect time.
But first -
Just because it's been so gloomy and cold and I stumbled across these photos while I was looking for my sweet potato - pomegranate bake;
Spring will eventually come back.
And then summer. Ahhhhh, the warmth.
|Early morning waves.|
Okay, back to reality.
Snow. Cold. Gloom.
Maybe a touch of sun.
We can hope.
But in the meantime, does all that cold have you craving citrus?
Here's a great filling side dish that is sooooo good. Did I say that already.
My daughter found the recipe several years ago on this website - Keepin' It Kind.
I wouldn't want to steal credit for her recipe, so I'll just show you two quick photos of our batch in progress and then refer you back to her for the glorious finished photos.
three large sweet potatoes cut into medallions, pomegranate arils, orange juice, maple syrup, sea salt, chopped pecans, coconut sugar or brown sugar, and ground cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg.
You may notice in the picture that my daughter chose an assortment of colored sweet potatoes. Who knew there were purple ones?
Okay, go on over to the site and look at the glorious after photos taken by her husband. Pomegranate Orange Sweet Potato Bake. Kristy tells a lovely story too about getting recipes from her grandma. I love family stories like this, so I was sold even before I tasted the deliciousness.
But please come back. I'll give you more summer waves and flowers.

So, how are you dealing with the cold? Snuggled up with a good book? So many releases this month - Jan's released yesterday and Ruthy has one on the shelf too.
I spent a cozy weekend snuggled in on the sofa with the cute dog, hot tea, scones and a great story. It was perfectly fitting for the snowy cold weather.
So help yourself to a cup of coffee or tea and let's chat.
