Emotional Eating

For once, let go of cupcakes, of bread slathered in butter, a screw-it-all I'll just have fries sprinkled with Parmesan. Scrub a sweet potato and roast in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes. While it's cooking, cut up a bunch of good feta cheese into cubes and throw them into a bowl with cherry tomatoes and olives. Chop up some parsley and some chives and add a bit of ground cumin and a bit of ground cardamon. Hell, add a bit of za' atar  if you have it. Add a few tablespoons of olive oil and squeeze a half of a lemon over the whole mess. Sprinkle some salt on that, and let it sit and marinate until the potato is soft. Split the potato and spoon the salad over it. Eat it for lunch while listening to this and for once in your crazy life feel virtuous.

  1. For a dish that has to be ate because of emotion I would say that is not an unhealthy decision.

    But why are you eating emotionally, dear one? xo

  2. Sweet potatoes are just about the best thing ever.

  3. That looks delicious! Mashed up sweet potato is the last thing my mother ate - that I fed her, about an hour before she died; the one thing I finally found that she would eat with gusto in those last days of her life. I'm not sure when I'll be ready to eat one again myself. But it sure looks pretty.

  4. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Beautiful and tasty. Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  5. Sigh.

    Thank you.

    The description, the photo, the music. Perfect. I hope you ate slowly without being asked for anything by anyone and I hope you do it all over again soon.

  6. Oh, that looks delectable! YUM!

  7. oh sweet Jezus... that looks divine ... packed full of every flavor i adore!!
