crock pot and veggie recipe

Yesterday I broke out the crock pot on Bill's request and made some beef stew with
herb biscuits on top. Not my kind of meal, but it sure did look good!
Bill liked it! Hearty winter meal!

Today, I followed a recipe from a cookbook my mom gave me for Christmas for a sweet potato layered dish. It was ok...

Cut up sweet potato (one big one) very thin slices (1/4 inch).
Use cream of celery soup (I used evaporated milk - that was all I had close to it) - one can
and mix with 1/2 cup sour cream. Take 3/4 of this mixture and toss with sweet potatoes and 1/4 tsp nutmeg.
Add spinach to the rest of the liquid mixture.
Layer 1/2 the sweet potatoes,
the spinach then some cheese (whatever amount you want or omit if you want)
then repeat the layer of sweet potatoes.

Cook for an hour and a half at 350 or till sweet potatoes are tender.

I'd change this up next time - try the cream of celery or something else to mix in -
I could not find cream of celery at the store.

Nick had this for dinner cut up.
I'm not into him having cheese but every now and then he does.

I was able to do 6 miles this morning and 2 in the afternoon. I try to run in the morning as long as Nick can be in his crib playing (about 30 min after he wakes up) and finish during his afternoon nap. I need to get outside though, the treadmill and basement are killing me!
