Figure 1. The beginnings of a great meal: a pound of Brussels sprouts + an enormous sweet potato.
Figure 2. Indecisiveness on how to prepare my sprouts led to this: Brussels sprouts two ways (left: shredded for caramelized Brussels sprouts; right: halved and tossed in olive oil, salt, and pepper for roasted Brussels sprouts).
Figure 3. Also in the mix for dinner: sliced white button mushrooms and some beautiful extra-sharp white cheddar cheese (Cabot Seriously Sharp white cheddar, to be exact).
Figure 5. Twice baked sweet potato topped with mushrooms and cheddar. This is beautiful, isn't it?
Figure 6. Saturday night's dinner: twice baked sweet potato topped with mushrooms and cheddar and Brussels sprouts two ways (caramelized and roasted).
