Sweet Potato Pancakes with Avocado Salsa

I don’t think i’ll be making any pancakes tomorrow since I am in South Africa with work. Maybe if i’m lucky they will include them in the breakfast buffet, but thats not really the fun of pancakes is it?

Polenta Brunch with Asparagus and Poached Egg

DSC07723This one is less of a recipe more of a food combination that I have been loving lately.
