I LOVE POTATOES!!! Almost as much as peanut butter and chocolate!

Trying new to me foods: Take Two, (Im a very picky eater!!)
(Take one was way back in well, I cant find it. I tried a Rutabaga)
Love love love them!! Almost as much as peanut butter and chocolate.
After a good workout or good run, I love some potatoes and eggs!!
I boil them, let them cool, then put some Olive Oil in the pan, shred the potatoes and fry em up!!
I grew up on a farm and we had potatoes with EVERY SINGLE MEAL!!!

SO, in my quest to be healthier, I decided to try Sweet Potatoes. Ive had sweet potato casserole. My sister in law makes the BEST ever!! Full of brown sugar, nuts, yumminess!!! Ive had a baked sweet potato, and I had to add some brown sugar and a bit of butter to be able to handle it. I will get there!!! Anyway, when I peeled it, they looked white, not orange. (Maybe I grabbed a white sweet potato).  I shredded it up, and fried it. I didnt add any seasoning, wasnt sure what to thro in with it. (any ideas?)
Quickly did my 1/2 C of eggbeaters and one real egg, and sat down for my feast.

I actually enjoyed it. Wasnt like my regular potatoes and it may take a bit to get used to, but I think I can handle this as a substitute for the Idahos I usually eat.


  1. I love sweet potato baked fries. Cut Sweet potatoes into long strips, spray on a bit of olive oil, throw on some herbs. Bake. YUM!!

  2. I never eat sweet potatoes, but they are so healthy! I will have to try them this way. Sounds like something better than in a casserole dish with marshmallows on top :)

  3. throw some cinnamon on the sweet potatoes and see if you like it. if you bake them you can put a little honey on them to make them a little sweeter, too.

  4. Congrats Deb! You won :) Send me an email!

  5. The orange ones are actually yams. The white-ish sweet potatoes are really sweet potatoes. Or at least that's what I was told. I've only learned to like them as an adult but now prefer them over regular potatoes. Yay for learning to like something new.
