Late recipe

I love this time of year, even though it has been ridiculously cold the last couple of days, there is something so wonderful about it all :) One of our favorite side dishes this time of year is baked yams with apples. It makes your house SMELL like fall and warm apple pie. It tastes so good that we eat it a couple of times a week -- usually as a side dish with oven fries and gardenburgers (yes, yams and potatoes in ONE meal. YUM YUM CARBS).
Here is the easy peasy recipe:

1 yam
4 small apples
pancake syrup

Preheat oven to 425. Slice your (peeled) yam starting at one of the pointy ends, so you should end up with circle slices (about 1/4 inch thick). Cut your apples into halves or fourths. Spread yams and apples evenly on an pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. It doesn't matter if your apples are face down or sitting on their skins, you will still get the flavor to juice out and spread, but make sure to have them spread with the yams, not separated on different sides of the cookie sheet. Drizzle syrup over your pan, lightly sprinkle cinnamon on top. Bake for about 15- 20 minutes. They smell amazing and taste great too :)
