NWR: What should I make for dinner??

I am cooking tonight for DH and a couple friends, and I don't know what to make! All I know is, no burgers or Mexican because we've had that already this week.


Also, I have some sweet potatoes that I would love to use, but I've never really done anything too creative with them! Just sweet potato fries or baked. Any other ideas?


TIA!

Have you ever made them with butter, sugar and cinnamon on the stove top?

Aw man the first thing I was going to suggest were tacos. Partly because I am craving a good taco, and partly because I love taco night!


You could try a sweet potato sheperds pie.


You could make brinner and have sweet potato hash with eggs 


or maybe sweet potato chili 


And if you make any of these let me know because they look yum!

How fun! I love having people over for dinner. 


What about some kind of chicken and using the sweet potatoes as a side?

I also found this yummy looking sweet potato recipe, but it might be too complex for a weeknight dinner, unless you have nutritional yeast on hand and wouldn't need to run out?

We're having Chicken Alfredo and a salad. About the sweet potatos. I agree with Tressy. First peel them then cook them on the stove, then mash them like you would mash potatoes. Put your season in alone with some condensed milk. Flour and grease a cup pan and put the sweet potatoes in there let it cook for about 20 minutes. Good Luck.

Yes Cale likes Fried Chicken with the sweet potatoes as a side. My mother in law cooked dinner for us yesterday and she made that for dinner. Are you going to try that burger out Elise? If so, please let me know how it taste!
