Roast Sweet Potato & Rocket Salad with Steak

Paleo – serves 2

I’m not going to whinge about how hot it is because I am fortunate to have air-conditioning, but I will say that I have absolutely no desire to eat anything above luke warm when it’s day two of 42 degrees, and tomorrow is heading north of there. My juicer and T2 iced tea jug are my new best friends. And my camera is not – had another hissy fit tonight – photo’s are there, looking great, flicked through the few version, ate my dinner, plugged the memory card into the computer – and bam… vanished. Canon, expect my call tomorrow.
