So this past Sunday night as I was driving home I saw a shooting star. This is probably the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve ever seen one in my lifetime. So, naturally I did what any queen would do- I made a wish. It was a simple wish, nothing material at all. I don’t think I’m supposed to tell yall what I wished for- isn’t that bad luck or something? But anyways tho no request is too extreme, right? So lettuce pray:
Dear Lord, Sweet 8 lb 10 oz baby Jesus, thank you for granting my wish and continuing to bless me beyond my wildest dreams! And please continue to walk with my hands in your tiny little baby hands. In your precious name I do pray, Ayeman! 🙂
So I’m finally back to my routine after Sandy put me on a 10 day hiatus. Serious up what was supposed to be a weekend trip turned into me spending 10 days away from home-yikes! But all in all it’s all good. As the semester enters the home stretch, I’m going to try to continue to maintain and persevere through it all.
So I’m wishing on a dream yall, I really am. Cuz honestly I don’t feel so fly all the time. And lately I’ve been feeling less fly than I would like. Maybe its somekinda SAD (google it). Or maybe it’s all starting to catch up with me. Or, maybe, just maybe, I’m beginning to believe who people have been telling me that they are for all this time. You know, with me being ‘needy’ and all… or at least feeling that way. Or maybe I’m just coming to terms with the fact that I’m human; I’m not a superhero, I’m not a phoenix, I’m not infallible- yikes!
At least I have my superb charm and exquisite wit tho…right? 🙂
I don’t know…I guess I’m hopeful, even slightly optimistic if you will even in the mist of what seems like this dark period in my life. Or at least I’m trying to be, I really am. Gotta have hope right? So I’m wishing on tomorrow praying that it comes… it will.
Sweet Potato Pie
- Simple Pie Crust
- about 6 sweet potatoes, washed with skin on
- 2 eggs
- 1 stick of butter, at room temperature
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 c brown sugar
- about 1-3 tbsp pet milk
- 1 c chopped pecans, optional
Preheat oven to 400°F
Prepare the simple pie crust, refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large pot, boil the sweet potatoes (with the skin on) until they are done, for about 30-45 mins. Allow them to cool and remove the skins and place the cooked sweet potatoes in a large bowl.
Add the butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar and combine.
In a separate bowl beat the eggs thoroughly and combine with the sweet potato mixture. Mix thoroughly and add the pet milk (you don’t want the mixture to be too loose, so eyeball it). You can add the nuts after this if you’d like.
Distribute the sweet potato mixture between the two pie crusts and bake until the center of the pies set, for no more than a half hour. Allow the pies to cool slightly before serving.
