sweet thing




so i have been known to listen to doctor radio, a lot. when my kids get in the car, they know they will have to change the station from some physician talking about colon health or abnormal heart rythyms. for some reason i love the stuff. maybe i should have been a doctor...just not in the cards for me. wonder if i could have applied myself enough to even get through, or in for that matter. probably not. next life.
i have so many things i want to do in my next life!
anyway, i was listening to a dietician give her speech about potatoes. she was talking about some glycemic index or something...to make a long story short...we should be eating sweet potatoes instead of the regular spuds. apparently these sweet things have 1/8 the bad stuff regular potatoes have (i think it is carbs).
so literally you can eat 8 times the sweet potato fries!!
music to my ears. worth a provo trip just to feast on guru's sweet potato fries.
so i ventured into pavillions to find the things. actually had to ask the produce guy where they were, cuz i had NO IDEA what a sweet potato looked like. AND, do not get yams...not the same. so i found these lovely beauties, and promptly took them home to bake in the oven (about 350-425 is too hot). peeled them, sliced them and sprinkled them with a little olive oil and sea salt...wonderful. very tasty and even the kids liked them.
AND...this dipping sauce i found is excellent.
my new favorite.
not as good as guru's, but a close second.

Yummy!

I confess to watching shows like Dr. G. Medical Examiner and other medical shows. They're addicting.
