Grilled Sweet Potatoes #BBQWeek


This week, Ellen of Family Around the Table and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures have us sharing recipes for the grill. This is one of my favorite blogging weeks of the year! I love prepping food and handing it off to Jake to grill for me.




Grilled Sweet Potatoes Recipe

So, I already mentioned that I had off the prepped food to my husband. I actually did all of my week's recipes on Mothers' Day; I figured that was perfect because he was doing all the work...and I could relax while he grilled. The downside: I was inside reading a book and neglected to get process photos. "Did you take any photos?" I asked when I came outside.

Ummm...no. Why would I?

"Because these are for a post," I almost wailed.

Nope.

Ugh. So sorry, folks. No process photos of the grilling part.

Ingredients
  • 4 to 5 organic sweet potatoes, roasted until just fork tender
  • freshly ground sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t sesame oil
  • 1 t sweet chili sauce

Procedure
Whisk together the olive oil, sesame oil, and sweet chili sauce. Set aside.

Slice the roasted sweet potatoes in half, lengthwise and brush with the sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill the sweet potatoes: Once the grill is hot, lay the sweet potato pieces, cut side-down. onto the grill grates. Cover the grill and cook until each side gets some grill marks, approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Serve hot.

  1. I love grilled sweet potatoes. I usually cut them into planks so I get lots of caramelized goodness and they cook faster. Not having photos is a small price to pay for having Jake make the entire weeks worth of recipes!!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
