Stasera cucina Lucas!

Many of our friends asked me if I cook all the time, or if Lucas cooks too. The truth is that we try to alternate: one night I cook, one night he does. And whoever cooks, also cleans the dishes. So, no complains: you choose how many pots and pans you want to use and then you also clean them up! As a matter of fact, it turns out that I cook more often, and sometimes he cleans up my mess. But, I'm actually very happy of our alternating agreement. It's nice to come home and not to have to do anything every once in a while. And.. Lucas is a good cook! Recently he's made some really delicious pasta dishes. But his favorite dishes are stir fries, or composites with rice or potatoes, some source of proteins and if he's in a good mood he'll make also another vegetable. So this post is in honor of one of his meals:

Gamberetti con pure di patate dolci e fagiolini / Shrimp with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans
For the recipe, you have to ask him!!!

Eheh, I told Lucas of his success! Apparently he doesn't remember the recipe, but I believe he just sauteed half an onion with say 1/2 lb green beans, then in another pan he sauteed the shrimp, which he had previously coated with some paprika, in olive oil. And to end, he boiled 2 sweet potatoes and then mashed them and added salt (he probably added some butter, if I know him well enough).
