I learned to love sweet potatoes when I lived in Louisiana, where I discovered that they don't necessarily have to be gooey and covered with marshmallows. I love them baked, with just butter!

Sprinkle a little cinnamon on one next time.

Supper is sometimes just a sweet potato, poked with a fork and microwaved until soft, usually for 5 or 6 minutes, then split open and slathered with butter*. I don't eat the skin, although if I'm going to fry them and slice them into "fry shape" I don't peel them.

*plus a sprinkle of cinnamon next time.

I haven't shopped for my meats yet. One Sweet Potato is on the list. Maybe two. The problem is that they are so high in natural sugar, I have to be careful how big each one is. Because no matter what the size is, then I am going to eat the whole thing. But they have so many other nutrients that are so good for you.
