Make these today.

August 6, 2009

While we were grocery shopping the other day, I stocked up on sweet potatoes.  Something about them was calling to me.

Then came dinner time.  I was at a loss for ideas.  Then it hit me – I wanted sweet potato french fries.  And from there, it got ugly.

I made about one and a half potatoes worth – cut them up, put them on a baking sheet, drizzled a bit of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), sprinkled some salt and pepper, and baked them at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.  Lordy, they were good.  So good, the next day I cut up two more and did the exact same thing.  I wish I could say that Brandon, Nolan, and I have all been snacking on them non-stop, but really, it’s mainly me.  Good thing those sweet potatoes are jam packed with some great nutrients.

So, if you can’t think of what to make for a snack or for dinner, run and get some sweet potatoes.  You won’t be sorry.

    Great idea. We go to The Counter restaurant and get these. Thanks for showing how it’s easy to make at home.
