Or “I love it when a plan comes together”.

I am sufficiently challenged computer-wise that I have limited confidence when presenting this as a recipe. So here goes:

Pear & Sweet Potato Slow Cooker Stuff.

2 sweet potatoes, 2 Bosc pears, 1/2 cup (or less) maple syrup, pumpkin pie spices (or just cinnamon). Some butter (a tablespoon). If you are a vegan, substitute some coconut oil.

Peel and section the sweet potatoes and pears. Seed the pears. Dump them in the slow cooker. Add the syrup, spices, butter,or vegan substitute. Let the stuff cook for about 3 hours on the low setting, till they’re soft. (Maybe longer, whatever)

See how it tastes. Adjust the seasoning. Make the dish with carrots, or apples instead of pears, if you wish. I’m not here to stifle your creativity. Far be it from me to spoil your fun in tbe kitchen.

You don’t have to use maple syrup. Brown sugar would work, honey also. Maybe even no extra sweetener at all, should you choose to do so. It is your f%&kin’ kitchen, for cryin’ out loud.

You could fiddle around with your own spicing ideas, maybe even use just cinnamon. Or ginger.

I don’t want to be oppressive and dictatorial and go all alpha male on you. Just do whatever the Hell you want. You probably will anyway.

I’m sorry I even brought it up. Good luck. If you don’t like the way it tastes, don’t blame me. It’s probably your mother’s fault. Blame her. Or your first lover from college. Or your first lover after you came out. Blame them.
