Sweet Potato Hash

Have you ever had that embarrassing situation when you had the pictures and recipe to share with, but you couldn’t come up with an idea for your post? I mean it’s always a way to write something like: “Hello, World! Let me introduce to you a stunning dish. Pudding – Alice. Alice – Pudding“, and so on. That could work out indeed. But I’ll reserve this ploy for those sad days I run out any decent ideas at all.

I shot this sweet potato hash in March, and all this time I’ve been thinking over the way to get rid of those pictures from my unpublished archives. I don’t have any particular story or memories. The recipe is simple to boast about.

Originally, I was going to be talking about some food I didn’t know most of my life and was desperately trying to find it when I started blogging in Russia. I even got some notes, but the text was generally lame and mediocre.  So I had put it off for a while. When I began my serial of “Revelations”, I perfected that concept. Or should I say I tried? Yup, few times I started writing a blog post, but that didn’t work either. The beginning was almost freaking awesome quite fine (I’ve got to be a humble guy!), with a few hilarious stories, but then everything was falling apart. No concept. No coherence. Nonsense. The way too long. Totally artificial product. Failed. Filed. I still have a pile of 159 papers though, for any case.

But the irony is I do love this dish and probably somewhere deeply inside I like these pictures as well. And I know, having been postponing this post for a long time, it might never get published – there are a lot of amazing nice stuff on its way, and I occasionally trash some unpublished works I took some time ago.

So I opted for this dangerous way. Hopefully, I won’t get trapped, and that won’t be my writing style.

But, on the other hand, it’s weekend just around the corner, and you may be looking for a hearty, simple, and delicious meal. What could be better than some sweet potato hash, eh? (What could be better than a stack of pancakes/waffles/french toasts? What could be better than a pizza/pasta? What could be better…you got that – an old classic trick).

Oh, let me wrap up this nonsense, please.

Enjoy you weekends.

And make some scrumptious hash.

    I for one am glad you posted the picture and the recipe! I know my writing skills are often eclipsed by a well taken picture, but that is why I enjoy taking recipes for a test drive as my only blogging attempt has been in limbo for years. Loved the combination of flavors, especially using the smoked paprika! Served it with a side of Toad In The Hole. Great combo! Is definitely a keeper and there will be repeat performances as evidenced by plates licked clean and rave reviews!

  7. Crazy I made something similar just the other night and this looks heavenly! Sometimes I am “blogged” out myself and words just don’t come. I guess we all hit that now and then. Sometimes I don’t feel a post necessarily needs a story and let the photos and recipe do the talking.

  8. I am in the same boat my dear Ben. Somedays it seems so hard to get the perfect idea about what to write —and that day is when my heart and mind don’t agree, and I try to go with my heart in those situation! It always works for me! ;) And I am totally loving this amazingly delicious looking sweet potato hash! AWESOME share! :)

  9. Well, let’s say you did pretty well for not having a post in mind. I enjoyed it :)
    I don’t think I ever had pictures and not the post. But at times I have the post but only very bad pictures, and that is also no good. I am still trying to improve my photography skills and the last thing you want, after you dedicate the whole day on a very time consuming, but delicious, recipe is not to be able to take a good picture. VERY frustrating!

    • Thanks, Emanuele but don’t lie to me. I know it’s not that enjoyable as could be. However, lie. I don’t mind:) I know you feeling. When I just start blogging many years ago, I put all the pictures, even though I knew they weren’t perfect – I just was afraid of not repeating a dish again and thus not having an opportunity to shoot it. Later on, I started to be picky about choosing the snaps but still used most of them. And only for the last year or even less I’ve been extremely strict, on that issue and a lot of pictures are being posted only in Instagram. Right now I have 3 folders: “to publish”, “not sure” and “not for publishing”. Regularly all these folders are audited and the pictures are moved into the second or the third folders” :)

  10. I ALWAYS have that problem, Ben. The writting aspect of having a blog is by far the most difficult, to me at least. Some people are so eloquent and they seem to have all these exciting stories. Not me. I’m boring and my writing skills are on par with a 5 year old. Or worse. Lol. Therefore, I feel your pain.
    I freggin’ looooovvveeeeeeee me some hash, especially sweet potato hash!! Yours looks super scrumptious- yummy for my tummy, for sure! :) I’m glad you decided to finally share this dish, because this is way too delish to be stored away! Cheers, buddy!

    • That’s so unfair to be a mediocre writer when everyone around is so eloquent, eh? By the way, by the word “mediocre” I didn’t mean you – only myself:) I love you style and now, but that’s good I’m not the only one person to have such an issue.
      Haha, thanks a lot! Potato hash is THE thing! The only thing I regret I tried it first time ever only this year – I had wasted so many years of my life not knowing it. So sad:)
