happiness

I am a dork.

Some of the smallest things bring me great joy.

Wholesome food, great friends, running, wine, and the FIRST lettuce planting of 2012!

Happiness indeed.

I feel like a kid in a candy store roaming the greenhouse these days.

It is filling up quickly my friends!

I guess it really is spring.

And since we love any excuse to crack open a bottle of wine and celebrate,  that is exactly what we did.

And dinner was not half bad either.

Spicy sweet potato pancakes with a lime curry yogurt sauce.  To die for.

Taylor took one bite and said “you know, I don’t miss eating meat. These are damn good!”

Nuff said.

For the pancakes:

1 sweet potato, peeled and grated (if you have a grater attachment with your food processor this works beautifully)

1/2 of a yellow onion diced

1 celery stick, diced

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

2 eggs (if your mixture seems too dry, add one more egg)

a few dashes of cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper

salt and pepper to taste.

Mix all ingredients into a bowl.  Form patties.  We made about 8 patties.

Fry in a frying pan over medium-high heat in a little olive oil.  About 5 minutes per side (or until browned)

Serve with lime curry yogurt sauce

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

juice of one lime

1 tbs curry powder

handful of chopped cilantro

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.  Top your pancakes and enjoy!
