Rounds Are Better Than Wedges

Maybe I am the last person to learn this, but cutting sweet potato rounds are MUCH easier than cutting wedges! Seems like everyone already knows this, but I’m posting just in case there are any wedge cutters like me lurking… try it round next time!

Sweet Tater Rounds tossed with Red Pepper & Cheese Spread

There is this really great spread at World Market called “Red Pepper & Cheese Spread – Flavors of Greece”. The jar says it is great on bread, pita and crackers. I love in on sandwiches and tossed with hot sweet taters! Just a few spoonfuls and stir it up and it adds a nice flavor.

Ingredients are pretty decent: red peppers, water, feta cheese, myzithra cheese, sauteed onions, evoo, red wine vinegar, tomato paste, glucose, cornstarch, sea salt, paprika, herbs & spices.

Sure they could do without the glucose, and use arrowroot flour instead of the cornstarch, but I was happy to see no MSGs or added colors or weird things. We also had it smeared on a turkey & mozzarella multi-grain pressed sammy. Yummy.

Have you ever tried this beer?



It is Quilmes from Argentina, and i tried it when we went out for tapas. It would taste much better drinking it IN Argentina. 😉

Okay, it is WAY too nice outside to be sitting inside blogging, so see you tomorrow!

  1. I’ve never heard of that cheese spread OR beer and they both sound great! Hope you have a lovely Sunday 🙂


  2. Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog :D.

    You know what, I am a wedge-cutter—don’t know why I don’t do rounds, I should start doing that. The dip sounds amazing, especially in a sammie. Hope you enjoy the gorgeous weather!

    Hey! We discovered roundss a few weeks ago—-they are so amazing! I don’t know what it is, but I feel like they are tastier than wedges—maybe because they usually become crispier than wedges? Good luck on the Shred!! It definitely gets easier.


  5. I am right with you girl- I am a total rounds girl too! So much easier and honestly, I think they even taste a little better when they are in circles. Maybe they cook more evenly?!?

    Haha- either way, they are still awesome however you slice them.
