for boot camp, and then, well, I guess you can probably imagine that I was a little distracted about the crisis that was unfolding in Watertown. My brother was staying in Watertown Thursday night and was awoken in the middle of the night to the sound of gunfire and what sounded like a full fireworks show. Before I left for boot camp I tried to “quietly” tell Tom while he was sleeping that he probably shouldn’t go into work for the day since his office was right in the middle of the chaos in Watertown. I guess my “whispers” about shoot outs and bombs weren’t done subtly enough to let him sleep longer so we were both up early in the morning watching the madness unfold.
so exhausted by the end of the night he could barely hold his head up, he had been reporting and chasing the story around for 30 hours straight. I can’t even tell you how amazing it was when we found out that they got him and he was alive!
my Shredded Chicken MexicanPie & my MexicanSweetPotatoShepherdsPie. The thing I love about these is that you get all of those awesome Mexican flavors in a dish but you can skip the whole tortilla thing to hold it all together
Prepare mashed potatoes, using sour cream instead of milk. Spoon potatoes over meat evenly. Bake for 30+ minutes or until potatoes are light golden brown. 1 cup sweet onion, chopped. 1 cup sweet corn (fresh or frozen). 4 cups mashed potatoes
They were a big part of my volunteer time at the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and this SweetPotatoPie Recipe is the recipe that helped me make it a few rounds in the Master Chef audition process
