The Mill

I just thought I'd remind you that along with the K-Tec mill you use for grinding your wheat, there are alot of recipes at the BlendTec website you might find interesting. I'm very tempted to try the recipe for bean soup...when it get's a little cooler. Have any of you tried any other recipes, uses with your mills?

Sweet Potato, Beets, Chicken and Potato

So we went to visit some friends who have moved up to Midway/Heber and ate dinner with them. The food was so good we have tried to duplicate it 3 times this last week. Each time with different ingredients and outcomes. It's very simple.

1 large sweet potato
3-4 potatoes
1 large breast of chicken sliced into 4 smaller pieces
1 large beet

Cut the potatoes and sweet potato into 1/4" thick wheels.

Place all contents into a large zip lock bag. You may need 2 bags.

Add some olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary. One time I used some oregano and lemon juice.

Spread out contents on a cookie sheet and cook for 20min at 400mph.

Nothing fancy, but is a solid meal in our chilly weather.
