Very nice work there Foam. Loins can be tricky & dry out quick but you seem to have hit the sweet spot there. The steamed sweets look delish....I think the best sweets and yams come from La and always get a box at Costco when I see them.....must be the heat and humidity there. Love the fancy china you got there .......Willie
I really missed you around Chef, glad you are back!
Its really hard to beat a Louisiana sweet tater. The best come from Opelousas, or Washington Parish. Did ya know that some are yams? Whoa don't get your apron string all knotted up....... It is a patented trademark for Louisiana Yams. Last I remember there is like 153 varieties and the State University develops new strains yearly for a contest. Yeppers, sweet taters and green beans always go good with pork. My canned pinto beans (not at all like the dried), are dwindling and doubt they'll be more. They need that good West Texas sandy soil. So I am marshaling when I open and quart....LOL So it was a Sam's semi fresh.
Thank you for the compliment my friend, I appreciate it.
