Chipotle and Blueberry Sweet Potato Hash

Chipotle and Blueberry Sweet Potato Hash

I have, to be honest, this week has been a bit overwhelming. I think I’ve tried to write this post 2-3 times and each time I just keep deleting and restarting. I’m actually surprised I've got this far and haven't begun again. I’ll blame my lousy mood and writer's block on the weather because, well, that’s easier than being honest. We all know that avoidance, distraction, and not talking about stuff is the healthiest way to live, right? (Please read my sarcasm) Ugh, I need a vacation! This week has definitely been a downer, for multiple reasons, which is why, I think, I needed to make this Chipotle and Blueberry Sweet Potato Hash.

Don't get me wrong, I love Pumpkin Spice stuff, especially Pumpkin Pie.

Braised Pork Belly with Quail Eggs and Stewed Tomatoes

Ever since I discovered the locally owned bluesky supermarket I've been inspired to cook more! The place is full of ingredients that were previously hard to come by in my town but aren't now! Sometimes I will just walk through the isles to see what they have to get the creative juices flowing.

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes.

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes.

I woke up this morning wanting poached eggs, but to my dismay I had run out of eggs! I was so disappointed because I've been trying to eat healthier and poached eggs have become one of my favourite dishes. So, I put my thinking cap on and came up with something that I was really happy with. Pancakes typically have eggs in them, but this recipe doesn't use them, and who needs them anyway when you have pumpkin?
