I don't know about anyone else, but this week has truly flown by. I looked up and all of sudden the weekend is upon us. Whew! Not sure if I'm ready, but I certainly have no choice but to roll with it. =)
I"m certain I'm not the only person who experiences this, but I go thru spurts of craving certain foods. A few weeks ago, my food of the moment was sweet potatoes. I was seriously wanting me some sweet potatoes. More specifically, the fries. I mean, it (craving) was really on me. Then it got to a point where I wanted sweet potato in any form but I won't go that far today.
Anyhoo, to satisfy my cravings, I went on a purchase a couple of sweet potatoes to try my hand at making sweet potato fries. It actually went pretty well and I learned a few things in the process.
|This sheet-full is from 1 potato.|
For one, 1 sweet potato can make a load of fries. So you really don't need to buy a bag to render a fair amount of fries.
Secondly, it was extra simple to make. I just peeled the sweet potato. (Which you don't have to do if you don't want to.) Then I cut them into my closest rendition of fries. Lol. Toss them in a bowl with a tablespoon or two of evoo, some Sun Fire salt (sea salt or pink himalayan's good too.) & pepper.
I laid them out on a cookie sheet, making sure they were nicely spaced out. Then popped them into my preheated oven of 450 degrees for 15 minutes. After that, I took them out and then turned them over with tongs and mostly my hands. Ouch!! I know. I need a crispamesh. Then I put them back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes and they were ready.
So easy. So quick. And so delicious.
Btw, they can be fried but we're trying to be our healthy best over here. ;) Also, I've seen recipes where people used cinnamon as a spice. Maybe I'll try adding that one day.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday,
