Sweet Potatoes and Yams

Friday, April 23, 2010

i adore both of them and try to eat as many yams as i can each week. i just bake them and eat them as they are. every once in awhile i will put a wee dab of butter on one, but i much prefer them plain.

since i also try to be as 'green' as i can, i compost the skin.

at target i discovered sweet potato fries. the brand name is alexia. because i try NOT to eat fried foods, i bake them in the overn.

would anyone like to share their favourite sweet potato and/or yam recipe?

    hi shirl! thank you for posting back. emoticon

i do eat chicken, and lots of fish - i try to eat fish every day. there are these cute widdle salmon cups and they are just the right size for a snack food.

and i eat veggies galore -- carrots, celery, the yams and sweet potatoes; sometimes regular potatoes; peas . . .

    Hi Chick -- Sweet potatoes are spectacular. I'm into a quasi-vegetarian mode (no beef, pork, or chicken but, fish and dairy pass muster). In my household there are two of us on this track, myself and Dad (85 years old and still out there surfing the web). At least one (or two) nights a week, we do sweet potatoes (baked in the oven) with steamed, fresh broccoli. I'm still working so, what I love about this meal is that it requires next to no work. Pop the sweet potatoes in the over and hit the exercise routine while dinner cooks.
