Southern Saturday - sweet potato hash
I meant to do more today, but I was out and about and hauling things around a lot, so I just made one dish for brinner - Sweet Potato Hash. I didn't take a picture because, frankly, it ain't pretty. I honestly can't remember if I'd ever had corned beef hash pregan. Surely I must have, but maybe I blocked all occurrences of it from my memory because of that time my dad fed us dog food and told us it was corned beef.*
Mike and I both loved this, so much so that we finished it all off before it even got cold enough to reheat. I thought I'd have to use it up as leftovers tomorrow, but it was gone pretty quickly. I used the ground TSP beef from the book, so I did all the prep and the beginning stages of cooking while that cooked. Apart from grating the sweet potatoes, it was pretty easy.
I would absolutely make this again. It was super delicious and really homey and comforting. In fact, I still have some TSP beef left, so I might make a personal-sized serving while Mike's at his game!
*Unfortunately, true story. Or so I'm told. Apparently, dad could only afford a potato and a can of dog food. I was probably too young to have understood what corned beef was and that dog food was different and not to be eaten, but maybe he felt the need to lie to us in case mom asked what we'd eaten and we told her dog food (even though none of us could've read the label at that age - my now 32-year-old sister wasn't even on solids yet).
