Avoiding nightshades is hard. I’m constantly saying “I can’t eat that.” In the winter it is nice to have something hearty and warm. I currently think one of the easiest ways to make sweet potatoes is in the crockpot. I wrap them in foil. No wholes poked in them. No oil. Just the sweet potatoes wrapped in foil. I put them in the crockpot on low for 8 hours.
When the 8 hours are up I take them out. Leave them in the foil and allow them to cool. I store them in the refrigerator. When I want one, I unwrap, split in half and heat it up in the microwave.
January is National Oatmeal Month. I love oatmeal, I eat it ll year round. I just recently started making it in the crock-pot so I only need to make it once a week. I store the cooked oatmeal in the refrigerator and heat it up a serving at a time in the microwave. I’ve been having my oatmeal in the morning with SoDelicious Coconut Milk Eggnog on top. I also like to top oatmeal with brown sugar. I am pretty much a purist when it comes to oatmeal. Maybe one of this years goals will be to try new oatmeal toppings. What is your favorite topping for oatmeal?
