Thank you for sharing your heartwarming stories and wonderful recipes.

I wonder if anyone in the states knows where I can get the sweet potato leaves Kaixin mentions? Are they just the leaves of sweet potato plants? I use sweet potato vines in my hanging baskets, but I don't think I can eat those!

linguini, Constance and Jill, thank you.

Jill, we grow sweet potato in the garden and just used those leaves. Yours should be OK if they are vines used to grow sweet potatoes and are not just ornamental.

Sounds good. No sweet potatoes in the garden this year, but sounds like one to add to the list for next growing season. Can't wait to try your recipes! But tonight, Chinese delivery in the Air Conditioning!
