Dinner at our house these days can be all four of us, four plus extras or just my husband and me.  I have no control over this from day to day so I move in hourly timeframes ready for updates.  I love all the varieties.  Having four plus extras is one of my favourites but I really don’t mind either way, as I know they are all happy off being independent souls.  So it’s either a feast or rich pickings from the day before.

Because everyone’s plans can be so transient with husband away travelling with work or I am out on a freelance job or plus/minus the boys, I tend to cook as if we are all together anyway.  This means I cook once – eat twice or pop spare portions in the freezer.  Truth be told one of our boys has hollow legs and tends to eat two dinners anyway.

Nothing is wasted and the secret to this new phase in our lives is to make every meal a feast whether it’s solo dinning or feeding the whole friendship group.

This sweet potato dinner fills all the feeding requirements in our house as the fillings can be made in advance, not that they are lengthy anyway but cooking in stages always works for me if I am working from home.  Also everything can easily be kept in the fridge to eat the next day.

How do you cope with feeding the household?

    I’m going vegetarian slowly, and this is a great addition to things I can make for lunch. Looks super yummy!

      Same here. We eat far more veggy dishes than we did before.

  • Reply Debbra Lupien 11th October 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Looks yummy, perfect for cooler weather. Not a fan of feta. What would you suggest as a replacement?

    • Reply Elinor Hill aka Beach Hut Cook 11th October 2017 at 9:51 pm

      You could use a soured cream or just add salt to the yogurt and sumac.

    Elinor, your photos are absolutely gorgeous. Who knew a filled sweet potato could look so pretty! I’ve never made ‘jacket sweet potatoes’ (sounds funny!), but it’s definitely something I’d have again and again. You had me at Feta cheese, Greek yoghurt and garlic! Thanks for joining in with #FreeFromFridays.
