Paleo Food - Meatballs & Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

I'm always tweaking my life. Habits. Hobbies. What I'm reading. What I'm watching. Activities. Obsessions. Supplements. Diet. My latest personal experiment? Paleo. I've been doing some (SOME!) of the basics for a while. Avoiding carbs. Avoiding sugars. Paleo kicks it up a few more notches. Plenty of literature out there. Plenty of testimonials Websites galore. And recipes. So I decided to try a couple of them.

My first foray included: Lion's Head Meatballs and Bacon Basil Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes. Both were absolutely delicious. Easily the best tasting dishes I've fixed since we moved back to MS. Possibly the best dishes I've EVER made. Cindy confirmed as much. And I think she liked them even more than I did.

I should have compressed the meatballs a little more. They were very light and therefore very fragile. Wonderful flavor and a very subtle kick to them.

I should have cooked the sweat potatoes longer. Didn't get them out of the skins correctly, so the aesthetic was off. And I didn't get the consistency right on the pesto. But it was still delicious.

Cindy and I thoroughly enjoyed this first attempt. There will be others. Many others.
