Stuffed sweet potatoes with spinach, cranberries and almonds

This past weekend I made a very short but sweet visit to London. The main purpose of the trip was to see Beyonce’s The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, which was absolutely amazing, stunning, beautiful, and worth every penny I paid for those tickets. Seeing her live in concert has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember- and even though I’ve now managed to successfully accomplish this task, I would love to see her in concert again. (Actually, that’s an understatement.) It was a giant dance party, and every single member of the audience, with the exception of the three very bored ladies next to me, participated in the two-hour sing-along. To the left, to the left… All the single ladies, all the single ladies… I felt like there was a sense of solidarity among all the concert-goers: yes, we are all here because we love Beyoncé, and we are here to see Queen Bey in action.

While Beyoncé was wonderful, Rachel and I also took advantage of our time in London to eat. We went for dimsum at Yautcha, before stopping at Hummingbird Bakery for cupcakes (I got lemon meringue, one of their monthly specials!) and Gail’s, where I bought some munchies (coconut meringue and seeded crackers) to bring back to St. Andrews with me. We also made a pit stop at Whole Foods, before grabbing frozen yoghurt at the very popular Snog.

Beyonce and food excursions were great, but I’m happy to be back to my library routine after spending a fun weekend in London.

There’s a link below to a recipe for stuffed sweet potatoes with spinach, cranberries, almonds, and cous cous. The cranberries provide a nice contrast with the savoury flavours, while the almonds provide great texture and crunch. Yum!
