  1. Can we have another 30 days?
    (everything is based on taste...)
    sweet potatoes peeled & cubed
    carrots (baby, straight from the bag or sliced @ the size of the potatoes)
    honey (or molasses, or date syrup)
    prunes (ahem, dried plums - without pits)
    water or orange juice. (The veggies, kind of steam while baking - I put in enough to cover the bottom)
    Mix together, cover & bake at 350 for about an hour. (I bake it with a chicken - its done when the veggies are tender.)

  2. Thanks Anonymous! I think these past 30 days went really well, and I'd love to do 30 more. Let me think about something similar we can try in 2011. Enjoy the fast-approaching holiday season!
