Cinnamony Sweet Potato Muffins #WeekdaySupper for #FamilyDinnerTable

cinnamony sweet potato muffins

Weekday Suppers can be a scramble to get a meal prepped, cooked and on the table at a reasonable hour. During Sunday chat I found out a few of our group grew up with a set dinnertime of 5:00 pm. I didn’t have a set time to eat dinner. We ate when dinner when it was ready.
When my girl was little, we ate as soon as we could. I worked late hours so dinners were prepped ahead of time: chicken breaded, veggies cut, salads made. I still make salad plates on a regular basis before I go to work. A simple act of cutting prep time or having a chef salad ready to eat relieves so much stress about meals.

Reading through the recipes, one caught my eye,Cinnamony Sweet Potato Muffins.

I love Grace VanDeWeghe’s description.

“Belgian families like mine love breakfast food, and these cinnamon-spiced muffins always remind me of cozy mornings growing up at home. These muffins could cure anything – a bad day at school, a scrape at the playground, a lost soccer game. Just smelling the irresistible aroma wafting from the kitchen always made me feel as though everything would be all right – and you know what? It was.”

Thanks to her description and the fact that I love sweet potatoes, my decision wasn’t difficult at all!

We didn’t eat them all at once. Come on I have some restraint! I froze a few and made breakfast with a few too! A little sausage fried into a patty, some egg and cheese and a little syrup! So delicious!
