Figure 1. Saturday night's dinner: balsamic chicken with pine nuts, roasted asparagus (simply, in olive oil, salt, and pepper), and Parmesan-topped twice-baked sweet potatoes (see below for filling details).
Figure 2. Before the oven: twice-baked sweet potato filling. These sweet potatoes were AMAZING (yes, worthy of all caps). The filling is a creamy mixture of sauteed onions and kale, Greek yogurt, thyme, Parmesan cheese, and sweet potato.
Figure 3. Saturday morning baking: applesauce granola made with pecans, almonds, sesame seeds, and golden raisins.
Figure 4. A close up of the applesauce granola goodness.
Figure 5. Sunday night's dinner: shrimp vodka pasta served with creamed spinach and mushrooms (mine served on a bed of additional raw spinach). Luckily, I had vodka on hand for this pasta sauce that had me bracing myself not to go back for thirds. And this creamed spinach? I died. Delicious. Absolutely delicious.
