Roasted Pork with Sweet Potatoes

It’s been some time since my last post.  Things have been a bit in flux at our house.  I recently started a new job about 20 minutes from my house.  One would think with cutting down my commute from about 3-4 hours total to max 1 hour total, I would have a ton of time…
