Purple Sweet Potato and Kale Hash with Fried Eggs

The mornings here on the westside of LA have been foggy, chilly and showing signs of seasons to come.  Which is such a big relief!  By noon though the day seems to have swallowed those hints of Fall/Winter and is full-on sweltering Summer again.  But I’ve been just soaking up the morning Fall vibes and loving it.  And those kinds of mornings call for warming breakfasts like this one.  Purple sweet potatoes are my new favorite thing- less sweet than their orange counter parts, and sweeter than their white counterparts, they hit just the right spot.  As Goldilocks would say, they’re jusssssttt right.  AND, that PURPLE!!!!  It’s genius!   Recipe below, I hope you enjoy!  Wishing you all a very relaxing weekend with lots of yumminess and love!  xx- Sarah  {PS- Thank you all for your amazing and sweet comments on yesterday’s post, I loved reading them and it got me even more excited about the possibility of having dinners with you!!  Lou and I are continuing to try to wrap our brains around a year on the road and will be in touch soon!}
