Hey everyone!

I’ve been writing and working on my book all day, and I still have a ton of research to get done before I call  it a night.

It’s Thursday and I made Swedish meatballs served with a sweet potato mash and grilled asparagus. In this post I’m going to give you my family recipe on sweet potato mash. We use this recipe a lot, it’s easy to make and it’s really tasty as well.

Ingredients for Hetty’s sweet potato mash:

4 Sweet potatoes

1 shallot

2 cloves of minced garlic



Freshly chopped parsley

Freshly chopped cilantro. ( or dry spice cilantro.)


How to make Hetty’s sweet potatoe mash:

1. Wash and peel the potatoes, then cut them in half, then in quarters and slice them up and put them into a pot with salted water.  Let them boil for about 20 minutes.

2. While the potatoes are boiling, peel and finally chop up the shallot. Put the shallot and the minced garlic into a pot with a good amount of butter. Let it simmer until it reaches a golden color.

3. When the potatoes are done, drain the water and add the potatoes inn with the shallots and garlic. Then use a masher to mash the potatoes. Let it cook for about 5 minutes. Blend inn the cilantro and the freshly chopped parsley and blend it well.

This is how simply and easy this recipe is, and it’s super tasty s well. I hope you like it as much as we do.

The meatballs is actually store bought, shame on me because I do know how to make it from scratch. When it comes to the asparagus, I simply used a grill pan to grill the asparagus and seasoned with salt and pepper, it took me about 10 minutes to get a crispy and tasty asparagus. We use this recipe a lot at my house and it’s simply amazing.

I hope all of you are having an amazing Thursday so far, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for  a new post. I don’t have my planner at my side atm, so I’ve no idea what I’m making for dinner tomorrow but I’m sure it’s  something good since it’s Friday and all.
