Spaghetti with Roasted Potatoes Made Them Cry

And they were not tears of joy.

Clearly I have really struck a nerve when one of my sons began crying when he saw that I added sweet potatoes and rosemary to the PLAIN spaghetti. It was not my two-year old either. And you wonder why my dinner repertoire has slowed to a trickle.

Well, he did have a bit of a point. I had high hopes for Spaghetti with Sweet Potatoes & Ricotta. Sounds lovely doesn't it? Perfect comfort food on a rainy Sunday night? Hate to say it, but it was a loser. It was just too many heavy ingredients all together. Maybe squeeze a lemon over it..

I didn't cry, but I did cringe.

Tomorrow: beef stir fry with bok choy.

It's disheartening to we experimental cooking types to continue serving plain buttered noodles with a meatball on the side. Last night Paul remarked "It's a wonder you continue to cook at all" after seeing the still-full plates left on the table, and that was simply roast chicken, brocolli and rice. Annoying!

Even though there are some misses, I give you tremendous credit for doing this. If you find a hit or two among them the entire thing seems worthwhile.

Thanks for sharing your cooking adventures. I can't wait until you get your camera back.

Just when I'm ready to give up on anything besides chicken nuggets and mac and cheese - they go and surprise me.

Overheard yesterday at my house: chicken is good, stew is good, veggies are good. How could chicken veggie stew be bad? Thank heavens.
