I saw a giant box of sweet potatoes at Costco. I picked them up without knowing specifically what I'd do with them.
Then we went apple picking. Do you know how many apples you bring home when you bring 3 kids to the apple orchard?
So I quickly made up a double batch of this delicious and simple crockpot side dish.
The only problem was I think I cooked it too long. My apples turned into applesauce. Oh well, it was still delicious. But if you want to see some beautiful pictures of how it is supposed to look, check out the original recipe at Eat at Home.

Clean, peel and chop the apples and sweet potatoes. Put them in a crock of the slow cooker. Stir in the apple juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook on high for about 3 hours, maybe less, until they are soft and done.
