I wanted to save my Sweet Potato Hash recipe for today, the first day of fall.
And thanks to Facebook, I am actually posting it today, since Ceci and I thought the first day of fall was on the 20th. Anyone else confused about this?!
I love sweet potatoes. I also love butternut squash, acorn squash, kabocha and spaghetti squash. But I was definitely not always this way.
When I was little, a daycare provider shoved squash down my throat after repeatedly telling her I didn’t like it. I threw up, and I was scarred from squash heaven for all of my childhood and into early adulthood.
This is the reason that I make my children try everything, multiple times, but never shove anything down their throats or make them feel like they must eat something just because I love it.
When I came out on the other side, though, I fell madly in love with all things sweet potatoes and squash.
Now listen, one of my most popular blog posts to date is 5 reasons you might not be able to digest sweet potatoes.
This information is legit.
But right now, currently, in this moment, I am digesting all the things, and it has been so lovely friends.
Sweet potatoes and squash are comfort foods for me, and (also) right now, currently, in this moment, comfort is what I’m craving.
I have been making this Sweet Potato Hash recipe for a very long time now, probably 2+ years. At our house, we eat most of the dish in one sitting. I make it when friends come over, and it’s always completely gone. No one even has to know it’s Paleo.
You are so going to love this.
