As mentioned in my previous posts, I am looking after my friends kids this week, and staying at their house.
The kids grandpa also lives here, and he enjoys cooking. Which works out great for me. Tonight he made a pot roast, and sweet potato pie.
I was honestly not sure what I'd think of sweet potato pie, its not something you get growing up in the North East of England. As soon as he started to bake it, the smell was amazing. I had forgotten how long it takes to make a pie. The better the pie smells the longer it seems to take :). (Of course that is all just perception), it felt like hours before the pie was cooked, then cooled enough to eat.
We ate it with whipped cream and boy was it good.
Here is the recipe that he used
You know, what I have just realised, after re-reading this post, is that when I started this blog, I would never, in a month of Sundays have thought there would ever be a post about sweet potato pie on my blog. Not least, because I didn't even know there was such a thing as sweet potato pie.
