M has not been overly fond of our last few dinners. In fact, he asked me the other night, "is this your way of putting me on a diet, fixing meals I don't like?" Well, actually no it isn't. It's just that the rest of us like soups and stews and chili and all sorts of other things M doesn't.

Tonight's dinner was:
Chicken and rice - with some leftover plain rice for M
Baked sweet potatoes (from our garden) - one bite for the kids plus raw carrots for them
Broccoli - raw for M
Fruit and seed bread

A loved it and wanted a second chicken leg - good thing I cut up 5 leg quarters for the pan. We'll have this meal again (mostly) in a few days. I thought it was a very good thing to fix on a night I had to go pick up M after his robotics. The chicken & rice and the sweet potatoes went into the oven about 4:45 and then the bread went in to finish up cooking a bit after we got back. Broccoli in the microwave and we were set to eat.

Oh, and leftover cherry/apple pie for dessert. I was impressed that M actually wanted to try it. His verdict: ok, but not great. He had Halloween candy for dessert instead. Fine by me, all the more pie for me. Mmmmm.... pie - there's still some left that may be part of breakfast tomorrow.

Are sweet potatoes easy to grow? I've been thinking it might be nice to have some fall crops in the garden next year.

We have a picky eater here, too. There's almost nothing he'll eat.

Yes, sweet potatoes were ridiculously easy to grow. I bought a pack of plants in May and planted them. Then we basically ignored them until it was time to dig them up. It was a bit of a treasure hunt to find all the sweet potatoes underground - some were a ways away from the original plant.
