But you should :o) The salsa adds a great flavor aside from plain tomatoes, and sweet potatoes really taste great in soups and stew.
I learned that years and years back when I first got online and found http://www.lainesletters.com There are so many great archived sharings over there worth reading.
Don't know about being MacGyver in the kitchen...he would have popped out a full 7 course meal *with* dessert given my list of ingredients :o)
Of course, the sweet potatoes could have gone into dessert I guess...sweet taterpie or cobbler would have been delicious! And homemade ice cream! YUM!
