Rosemary Roasted Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Is it weird that literally every time I watch Pitch Perfect, I get chills? No seriously, I totally get chills. I keep thinking that I wrote Chili’s. Like the restaurant. I remember back in the day when I used to go to Chili’s for their chips and salsa paired with a chocolate molten cake. Those were the days. Mostly the days of sickness, but they sure tasted good. Crap, back to the point. I really can’t wait for Pitch Perfect 2 to come out. My 2015 will be complete when that occurs.

So this dish was inspired by my friends of Pastured Kitchen. While we were in Austin, they made a breakfast of apples, sweet potatoes and sausage all cooked together. It was delightful. Sweet Potatoes and apples should always be cooked together. I’ve made recipes before mixing the two but only for Thanksgiving. So why not do it again in a different way! I mean, that was 3 years ago! Cray cray. Time flies.

Want to know a cute story about Jackson (my puppy) that may make you think I’m weird? Ok great. So I was showering the other day and we have a glass door shower, so Jackson was hanging out in the bathroom bored as usual and decided he wanted to come in. Was I going to say no?? Of course not!! He’s my little human. So I let him in and he LOVED it. He thought it was super fun. So after we had a grand ole time in the shower, I said “Well sh*t, he smells even worse than he did before.” I don’t keep the puppy shampoo in the shower with me, so I wrapped him in a towel and wrapped myself in one too and took him to the kitchen sink to shampoo him. Well, he was not a fan of that. He about screamed bloody murder. And kept jumping out of the sink. So I decided to take him, all soaped up, to our bath tub. Which proved to be challenging since he was pissed at me already. Final understanding of this experience, I’m going to keep puppy shampoo in the shower with me. Yep, I’m going to shower with my puppy like a freak weirdo.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Juli, I love your Jackson stories! So cute! I cooked up something similar this weekend with cubed sweet potatoes, cubed pink lady apples and herbs, but also added in cubed rutabaga (tastes a lot like potato) and crumbled in ground pork. That’s this week’s breakfast!

  2. I am a freak weirdo too! I shower with my Frenchie. She loves it and it’s so much easier than making her stay in the sink where she is obviously miserable and cold plus I feel like she gets cleaner that way, maybe? So yeah. Freak weirdo. 😀

  3. You’re not weird for showering with your pup, my boyfriend does the exact same thing because thats the only way Piper (his pup) will actually enjoy it!

  4. I’m so happy someone else loves Pitch Perfect as much as I do! My boyfriend doesn’t understand my obsession with that movie and makes fun of me for it. Ironically enough, I was listening to David Guetta while cooking the other day and he walked in and told me that he likes the version from Pitch Perfect better and then proceeded to turn on the movie! Hahaha, mission accomplished!

  5. I don’t have the pink lady apples at the moment, but I do have some red delicious apples…do you think it would taste good if I used those instead?

  6. We gave our dog a bath this weekend, and he basically stood there the whole time looking pathetic and miserable like we were water-boarding him or something.

  7. I follow you on Instagram and I love the pics of tiny Jackson. His face is so freakin cute and smooshable. I have two small dogs and usually just bathe them in the sink. They have gotten used to it at this point, but they still don’t like it. One of them literally gets super pissed at us because she’s wet. She sits in the corner of the room looking miserable, and then just gives us the stink eye. No cuddles, no affection, just mean muggin us. The fact that Jackson loves the shower is a great thing to find out Just don’t bathe him more than once a month because it can dry their skin out and cause all sorts of issues.

  8. I totally shower with my dog! She hates it but the chances of me getting her to stay in a bath are about zero. We get it done as quick as possible in the shower.
    Not weird at all!

  9. I only bathe my dog in the shower with me…it’s the only way she doesn’t freak out…I’m positive many people use this tactic.

    Also, loving the Jackson pics on instagram!

  10. I used to shower with my dog too! Mostly because we didn’t have a bath tub and she’s a lab so she was too big to fit in the sink. It was good times though. Except that she HATED it and would just sit in the corner cowering away from the water, which broke my heart a little but she was a stinky girl sometimes and she needed a bath. Now we have a bath tub and she is all bout it. Silly pup!

  11. I had leftover rosemary from the rosemary with dates chicken recipe that you had posted and had no idea what else I would make using rosemary and didn’t want to throw it away. Then you sent an email with a recipe where I had ALL the ingrdients and I didn’t have to buy a single thing! What serendipity!! It came out delicious and I am so happy right now!

  12. You are not a freak. Showering with your dog is the only reasonable way to shampoo any dog over ten pounds. Get him into it now and you’ll be good to go for life.

    PS> Showers are also handy for little kids.

  13. If I wanted to add the sausage for funsies do I just cook it all together or will I need to cook the meat separately and add?

    Ps pitch perfect is THE BEST. My hubs and I watch it endlessly. We saw it in the theater with our friends who happen to be a Capella singers! Hahaha i didn’t know there was going to be a sequel for sure!!! I CANT WAIT!

  14. OMG made this last night…never making sweet potatoes any other way. so so good.

    AND i shower with my pups too…it’s WAY easier because bathing them just forces you to take another shower anyway. Kill two birds with one stone!

  15. Umm I didn’t even know there was going to be a Pitch Perfect 2…I’m super excited!

    Hahaha love the Jackson stories 🙂

  16. 1. I love Pitch Perfect and you totally made my day by saying there’s going to be a second one! Aca-awesome!
    2. When I had my mini schnauzer I would bring him in the shower with me and shampoo him. Not weird, it’s smart and convenient. He would sit there until I was done and we both were so fresh and so clean! It’s a win win!

  17. I’m totally stealing from a previous poster and making this tonight with the chicken with shallots and dates recipe. I can’t say as though I understand not knowing what to do with leftover rosemary, though 😉 I love the stuff. If anyone’s looking for an idea, make maple-bacon breakfast sausages/meatballs and add some chopped rosemary. So delicious!

    I, too, am a total dork for Pitch Perfect. It has a permanent place on our DVR. Both my husband and me are known to throw it on any random night. My husband always laughs at me because I cannot help but crack up during the final musical number when Gail plays air guitar on John’s leg. Every. single. time. Yup, such a dork.

    I have pretty low expectations about the sequel. I suspect it will try too hard. (Exhibit a – did anyone try watching Fat Amy’s sitcom this past Fall – AWFUL!!) Let’s hope I’m wrong.

  18. Puppy showers aren’t weird at all. I keep dog shampoo in the shower and my little dogs jump in with me all the time. I’ll wash them while the conditioner sits in my hair or I’ll let the shampoo sit on them while I shave my legs. Multitasking!

  19. We made this with sausage stuffed quail. For breakfast, we browned the leftover sausage, added the leftover sweet potatoes/apples, and put a sunny side up duck egg on top… mind blowing. OMG. I have a picture, but can’t seem to post it on here.

  20. Lindsey Mulvany

    Oh my goodness Juli, Do you remember in choir class when you and I had to sing Shenandoah together? AND then sing it in front of those “judges”? Wowza. I mean, we sounded legit and totally pitch perfect. 🙂

      1. Lindsey Mulvany

        Hell yeah, girl! I absolutely love your blog and probably make a meal from here 4-5 days a week! You helped me drop 2 pant sizes, so thank you. 🙂

  21. This was amazing! I ate only this for lunch with some coconut water, it was delish! It makes great munching food too, loveeee the sweetness of apples!

  22. Don’t worry, I’ve been showering with my dog for years! I figured out long ago that it is much easier and more efficient!

  23. 1) I bet now that you’re engaged, your 2015 is already complete!! HA!
    2) Pitch Perfect was based off my sister’s collegiate a capella group, Divisi (from the University of Oregon). I went to see it in theaters the first week it opened and in the theater with me was the guy who does the close-up magic! After the show, he sang to us. It was amazing. I cannot WAIT for it co come out soon!!!!
