Day 232 - Sweet Potato Yum

Anyone who knows me can say that I am a picky eater...specifically veggies. I carry a lot of guilt by being a poor role model for my children. So far, they have not caught on that I don't eat what I am trying to make them eat.

Chris on the other hand, eats anything. The veggier the better.

I can not possibly compete with that.

But today, I made something yummy which technically is a veggie - sweet potato chips.

The kids wouldn't try them...but I ate them right up. Lucky me! (And that isn't even sarcastic!)

Want your own? Here's what you do:

Peel a sweet potato and slice it as thin as you can. Meanwhile heat up canola oil in the bottom of a heavy skillet or pan. (I don't make the oil much deeper than the slices of potatoes.) It seems to work best on a medium high heat.

Cook them and flip them a bit. Keep an eye out and when they start getting dark pull them out with a slotted spoon and let them hang out on a paper towel covered plate. Salt them while they are hot.

I'm glad I bought 3 more sweet potatoes. I might do this again tomorrow. And I probably should eat them right in front of my kids.

  1. Oh man, I ate so many sweet potato chips when I was pregnant with Charlie, and they gave me THE WORST heartburn.

    I bought some the other day though, I should make a sweet potato and carrot mash, yummmm.
