Interrupt this Paula Deen PBR moment with a message from Dr. Joe – People are Stupid

Folks, the votes are in.  PBR is now the official beer of the Southernfoodscrounge site.  Not that I don’t think other beers are good, or that I’m receiving daily deliveries of PBR in a Gran Torino, but….we have to stop a minute for this public service message from Dr. Joe, one of my favorite community columnists.  It’s a classic.

People are inherently stupid

People are inherently stupid

 

His job is tough, unfortunately due to people refusing to take responsibility for their actions.  I speak from experience.

October 2009 I was struck by an intoxicated driver while riding my Buell Lightning.  Above are just a few of the injuries resulting from the accident.  And yes, the metal you see still remains.  So please, if you choose to imbibe, stay off the road.  Mr. Mike and I enjoy various libations but don’t put other people at risk when we do.

Thanks for the message, Dr. Joe.  And now back to Miss Paula and PBR.  You can easily cut the fat in her recipes by 30% and not affect the flavor or outcome.  Not sure how to do? I’ll explain in a future post, but now it is time to go to PT.  Love ya Miss Paula but stick to changing your diet and not hawking drugs as a solution to diabetes.

I think I see the Torino’s headlights coming down the drive….

Ride On – Spicy Roasted Sweet Potatoes No Paula Deen Here

Roasted sweet potatoes have their flavor enhanced with the addition of cinnamon, sugar, and red pepper.  Sweets are plentiful in the South now – pickup trucks along the highway sell them, even Walmart carries locally grown sweet potatoes.  Paula Deen should try them without a stick of butter; there’s no need for more than a teaspoon/serving.  SPs have a low glycemic index which is helpful to diabetics.   And leave the marshmallows to hot chocolate.  Let the sweets stand on their own.  This recipe is a variation of a Woman’s Day recipe (see photo).  The recipe choice is yours. My version doesn’t look as shiny as the magazine’s.  I think some food styling was going on with the mag – spraying the SPs with oil.  Hey next week- the annual Chili Cook-off by Christian Motorcyclists in Paul B J park nearby – photos and recipes!!

Sweet and Spicy Roasted Sweet Potatoes  (Serves 4)

2 Tablespoons brown sugar

1 Tablespoon olive oil

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch cayenne (chipotle is recommended

Kosher salt

½ teaspoon black pepper (coarse grind recommended)

¼ cup grated parmesan (optional)

2 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¾ inch wedges

Heat oven to 375⁰F.  In a large bowl (straight sided works well), combine the sugar, oil, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper.

Add the sweet potatoes to the spice mixture, toss to coat.  If desired, add parmesan cheese and mix well.  Spread potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet sprayed with food release.  Bake until golden brown and tender, stirring once.  Baking time is 50-60 minutes.
