What do I serve with this? (Food pairings thread)

So I'm decent at cooking, but not very good at coming up with combinations of foods, i.e. finding out which side dishes go well with a main dish or which main dish would go well with a side dish. Lately, for instance, I've been crazy about sweet potatoes, in the form of fries/wedges or oven-baked/ha...

Well, I'm not actually sure if the pills are having side effects - it could just be that I simply am this sensitive (which is the scarier answer, but oh well, I guess everything can be worked on). I guess I might be more scared of pain than your average person, somehow.
