Sweet potatoes

October 14, 2008

He cleared the table without a word when they were finished, then went in the living room to watch TV.

She lifted the baking stone from where she’d set it on the stove and carried it to the sink. It bore the outlines where the sweet potatoes had roasted, their shapes like caramelized ghosts.
