Portugese Milk Mayo from a Vermont Kitchen

January 11th, 2012 / Comments 1

It’s not to late to make a New Year’s resolution. Rather than resolving to go to the gym three times a week, or to sort out the extra clothes at the back of my closet, or to re-read at least one classic before the daffodils appear; I have resolved to have an empty fridge when it’s time to travel to Italy in March.

She wrapped a roasted sweet potato, still hot from the oven, in a thick layer of newspaper and tucked it into her pocket – it was ready when she was, a perfect breakfast on the run without crumbs or empty calories.

Sweet potato salad is another way to add this healthy vegetable to your diet and is great alternative to white potato salad.
