Amazing Roasted Sweet Tates.

We need to have a discussion about sweet tates. I love them all year round. But I get pumped in mid-September because it means my nemesis (Summer) is getting ready to make its exit for a minute or two, and I can start making Thanksgivingy food and not have to feel weird about it.

I feel much better having had that discussion.

Start by peeling + dicing a couple of sweet potatoes. Grease a roasting pan and throw them in.

Scrounge up a tablespoon of butter. Then melt it. Grab your olive oil. Drizzle the butter atop the tates, then drizzle a little (like a tablespoon?) of the olive oil over that.
-1 tablespoon brown sugar
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (grind your own if poss!)

Add a pinch of sea salt. Use your index finger to combine. Other fingers will not work for this. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE OTHER FINGERS. 

Sprinkle this atop your buttered + oiled tates, then stir them around to combine. They'll look like this:

Roast these in a 350 degree oven for ohhhhhh I don't know, like 35-45 minutes. Pull them out after 20 or so minutes and give them a stir. Pull a bite out with a fork after 30 minutes to check. Your oven temps may vary. WHO KNOWS. Who knows. Ovens are unpredictable.

They will look beautiful and delicious when they're done.

 They'll blow your pants off. I swear.
