Just finished making dinner :)
I made curry mince with sweet potato mash. Homemade curry paste, tomatoes and herbs from the garden. Spiced the s/potato slightly. Our sweet potatoes are a cream colour in South Africa and I see on Food Network that they are orange inside. Ours are not really sweet are the orange fleshed ones?

We have both kinds of sweet potatoes here in the US. The orange ones are sweeter than the white/yellow ones.

I'm thinking pirogi lasagna tonight. I wanted to make it last week but didn't have the sauerkraut. Have it now! Not sure what I'll serve with it just yet. Maybe a garden salad. We'll see.

Lots of leftover roast chicken so it will be a chicken quesadilla for me and "other" chicken for SO - probably salad with chicken and feta or something.

Don't forget to put chimichitos on your todo list for your leftover chicken

Thanks for the reminder. I'll have to pick up some enchilada sauce and green chilies.
