Hi...
We had this a few nights ago for dinner and it was delicious! My hubby never knows what might be on the plate in front of him, but he always looks forward to it! This was a very colorful dinner...with the BLUEberries and the ORANGE color of the sweet potatoes. .... and I served it with a GREEN salad!
Enjoy!
