awesome dinner

the wifey tells me to blog so here i am :) can't say no to that.

i just made a really good dinner. i did beer can chicken, yam and potato casserole, and asparagus. the chicken is so easy to make. i just did a rub and stuck a can of beer up the chicken. one hour later- voila! awesome chicken. the asparagus we picked up from our neighborhood farmer's market.

today was opening day for the market. it's pretty cool. they had a lot more than i was expecting. we also got some fresh chevre rolled in herbs de provence and a yummy balsamic apple vinegar (lynn, you seriously could drink this!). i look forward to hopping over to the market for fresh produce and goodies.

here is the casserole recipe, if you're interested:


  • 1 large sweet potato, thinly sliced
  • 1 large potato, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In the prepared dish, make a single layer of sweet potato slices. Place a few onion slices on top, dot with butter, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat, alternating layers of white and sweet potatoes.
  3. In a small bowl, or measuring cup, combine flour and broth. Pour over potatoes.
  4. Sprinkle cheese, bread crumbs and parsley over the potatoes. Dot with remaining butter. Cover.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until potatoes and onions are soft.
