Ouestion of the day

This is not exactly the question of the day, but more the weekend as I probably will not get to this till Monday night.

What should I do with these fingerling sweet potatoes I got at the farmers market last weekend? I have been debating this in my mind most of the week. I don't really want to make mashed sweet potatoes. I was thinking of boiling them and them pouring a sauce/syrup over them made from butter and brown sugar and just reducing it down. Any suggestions will help. Also if it matters I have no idea what I am cooking with these, so any fish or vegetarian suggestions to go with the sweet potatoes would be awesome as well. I promise I will post pics if someone has a great idea, hell I may post pictures anyway.

You could also boil them and then top them with a finely chopped parsley and olive oil after they get soft, add a dash of cracked black pepper too.

I'm a fan of boiled, mashed, butter, brown sugar. Mmmmm. But then, it takes a whole lotta sugar to keep me sweet!

Roast them olive oil and rosemary and sea salt. Then use the leftovers to make hash.

If you do boil and mash them, make sweet potato cakes with the leftovers. Mix in some green onions, an egg, some bread crumbs, and some salty cheese and fry them in a pan. Yum yum!

This weekend, I made roasted root veggies - carrots, parsnips, onions, radishes and sweet taters. Some fennel is good to throw in, too, but I didn't have any. It was tres delicioso.
