In Praise of: Sweet Potatoes
My eye is almost back to normal. Thanks for the concern! I am still wearing my glasses and actually getting used to them once again after wearing contacts for so long, I had gotten spoiled by not having to wear them.
Today, I thought I'd bring back one of my favorite blogging subjects, praising food. Haven't done an "In praise of" for a long time.
This time of the year, sweet potatoes are readily available. This is the first year that I have really tried them. I have to say that I love them. I went to Sam's this week and they had a 10 lb box for $8.88. I've eaten one a day all week, slicing them, adding a bit of oil and baking them for 30 minutes. They come out just a little soft and melt in your mouth delicious.
Do you have a favorite way to serve sweet potatoes without having the traditional Thanksgiving brown sugar with marshmallows mega-calorie feast?
