Sweet Potato Oatmeal Boat

Recipe at the bottom of this post.

When I was a little girl, every time my dad asked me where I’d want to go to eat, I answered, “somewhere with good ambiance.” (No wonder why I became an architect.) I’ve been trying to set up a nice table scene for our family whenever I get a chance. Nothing crazy, and it doesn’t happen at every meal, but I didn’t want to eat like we’re in survival mode every time. You can go to my Instagram reels for the actual table setting. Since the table is too long and spread out, I need to rearrange it a bit for the photos.
