Kim’s Kolorful Kasserole

IMG_0316 Sometimes I wonder why we ever pay to eat at a restaurant.  It seems nine times out of ten home cooked meals are the best.  Sunday Kim and Marc invited us for steaks.  What a delicious meal.  Steaks done to perfection, stir fried asparagus and this beautiful concoction.

According to the web site Essentially Healthy Food,  the experience of beauty in food can be attributed to these factors:
  • Harmonious Composition
  • Colour
  • Freshness
  • Culinary Perfection
  • Simplicity
  • Naturalness
  • Complexity
  • Creativity
  • Ingenuity
  • Drama
The dish that Kim created Sunday fits all these categories.  She didn’t have a recipe, but obviously it contains sweet potatoes and apples with Cranraisins, pecans, and brown sugar to taste.  She said she precooked the apples and sweet potatoes for a short while and then combined ingredients with a splash of lemon juice and baked for 30 minutes.

Wouldn’t this be a great fall recipe when sweet potatoes and apples are fresh?  It was delicious right now in the spring, too.
