Any of you guys ever have fried green tomatoes? That shit is delicious. I had a whole basket full of green tomatoes I had to pull off my plant because of the early frost, so I've been frying them up every couple of days. I wish I had a picture but they get eaten too fast to get any visual evidence.

I love fried green tomatoes

Some pizza chain opened near us that delivers your shit like five minutes after you order (over the internet).  It makes it toooooo easy.

YES on the fried green tomatoes.  Recently, I made BLTs using those in place of regular tomatoes, and they were great!  I also added some chipotle-garlic mayo to the sandwiches; basically just some canned chiptole pepper and minced garlic fork-stirred into some mayonnaise.  A really versatile topping for all kinds of things!

The concept of marshmallows on sweet potatoes is so foreign to me.  I mean, in my family we never really ate sweet potatoes.  Ever.  When I eat them now I can only eat like two bites then any bites beyond that I feel I have no room left in my body for sweet potato.  Even if I am still hungry, I can not do it.  My body can only contain so much sweet potato, and it is not very much.

Butternut squash is the same.

Like, I think butternut squash is fucking delicious.

but I can't handle more than 2 mouthfuls.

I don't think marshmallows would improve the situation.

Do they use brown sugar or something? That would be pretty good.

I do not deny the patriotism inherent in layering sugar on sugar, I just prefer sweet potatoes less adulterated

at its simplest, loads of chilis and meat.

Better, start with onions, garlic, bell peppers, and chilis (a combination of various types of fresh and dried chilis) sauteeing in your fat of choice. Add beer and meat that you've browned in a separate pan. Tomatoes too. Beans (if you roll that way) should be added early enough to cook and soften a bit but not so early that they dissolve.

I think I've posted chili recipes on here before (http://www.lastplanetojakarta.com/forums/index.php/topic,11972.msg625656.html#msg625656). Greg has also and his chili wins awards and accolades.

Jim summed up the chili pretty well there. I just want to add this bit of advice: "If you're ever not sure if something is good, just keep adding jalapenos until you are sure that it's good." -rockmeamadeus

Marshmallows have not been a part of my sweet potato eating experiences, traditionally. In fact, the closest I've come is the marshmallow fluff dip for sweet potato fries that Bri, Jess and I shared at a bar in Lexington, which was pretty darn good.


Also, solid advice from Josh/Blake.

jm, I am in Wisconsin and/but I can only tell you that my family did marshmallows every year and at age...28? I think, my brother still scrapes off the marshmallows and ignores the sweet potatoes because we are adults. I cannot speak for the entirety of the Midwest.

Hmm! I'm from Ohio and this is the first I've heard of this practice!  Time to investigate.

I think it is pretty common in the midwest. We never had any kind of sweet potato tradition in my family but I was introduced to them by Mindy's family, who had a more minimalist approach. I've seen that sweet potatoes and marshmallows thing a bunch of times. I guess if you're gonna go sweet(er than usual) with them I say go full on and make me a damn sweet potato pie.

Maybe it's a southern part of the midwest thing? My parent's families are from Missouri and they do sweet potatoes with marshmallows, my aunt is from Kentucky and she DEFINITELY does them with marshmallows. The first time I ever encountered a sweet potato, it was called candied yam and it had marshmallows and brown sugar all over it. I hated it until I didn't anymore. Now I will eat a sweet potato with nothing on it at all. I'll eat it right up.

i've only seen marshmallow sweet potatoes once, at a danish family christmas, and thought it was disgusting. whoever was flipping out about the whole country not having such bad taste should maybe take a valium and reconsider their ways. or embrace the crazy, bring back lime jello marshmallow molded salad, in a jessie steele apron:

My family always did marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes, and I just assumed it was a way to get picky kids to eat them. I don't remember if they still do it, because the youngest kid at dinner is 15.

For Christmas dinner, my uncle's girlfriend makes an awesome sweet potato casserole that involves bananas.

I will fuck someone up if they put marshmallows on my sweet potatoes. I hate marshmallows more than I hate anything else in the world. The only things that should be on top of my sweet potato casserole are real butter, brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon.
