     These sweet potatoes were born when I had no oven (due to a small fire).  I fried them like regular potatoes and they were delicious, sweet and a bit crisp around the edges.  We'll use the rest of the goat cheese on the weekend.

Chevre Stuffed Burgers

Total time: 25 minutes
    A bit of creamy goat cheese in the center keeps these burgers very moist and adds a lovely flavor.

Chevre Stuffed Burgers Ingredients:


Fried Sweet Potatoes

Total time: 35 minutes
     Incredibly easy, faster than the more traditional sweet potato methods of baking or drenching in something sweet; simple frying lets the wonderful flavor shine.  A bit of oil added to the butter helps prevent burning.

Fried Sweet Potatoes Ingredients:


Sautéed Snow Peas (Mangetout) with Spring Onions

Total time: 15 minutes
     Spring onions are the small, round white onions that appear in spring.  If you don't have them use green onions.   If the snow peas are small, leave them whole.  If they are large (2", 5cm) cut in half of thirds, at an angle.
