First the problem was sweet potatoes. We had them for supper and there were leftovers, and I think they were out of a can anyway, so who would want them reheated, seriously? I just happened to have a recipe for a sweet potato batter bread with pumpkin pie spices and toasted pecans (from season 2 of Breaking Bread with Father Dominic, recipe HERE), so there went my evening. I did a little grading while the bread was cooling, but not enough to really count as a serious effort, which proves that as a teacher I am lazy and selfish. All know this.
Then it was mashed potatoes. We had them for supper, and of course there were leftovers, which of course meant I had to make potato bread, since the kitchen staff evidently need a lesson in making fried mashed potatoes for breakfast and/or potato soup for lunch. Nothing extensive--four loaves, enough for a couple of breakfasts. But did I grade papers while they cooled? No---I made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies because my sister Anj happened to mention them when I spoke to her on the phone. Fasting blood sugar the next morning: 176. Hope my doctor is too busy to read food blogs.
But great toast awaits for breakfast, so that's something.
