I have been trying to get my family hooked on sweet potatoes for a L-O-N-G time. I would buy them if I knew for sure we would eat them and when I way “we” I mean my hubs. He does have quite an influence on what the boys eat. For example, we have an ongoing battle over Miracle Whip and Mayo. As of now I see no end in sight so our children will probably grow with psychological problems when it comes to what spread they want on their ham sandwich but that is a story for another day.
Knowing the trouble I have with condiments and realizing I could lose the sweet potato fight completely I told no one! I just watched smugly as they all took bites and relished in the fact that I had done it! Bite after bite they kept eating. My 5 year old even said, and I quote, “This is the best cake ever!” Yes, son, this IS the best cake ever. I had come out victorious after this battle; the fight, well that has just begun. Next battlefield, savory sweet potatoes with a lot less butter! Oh, and I did tell them eventually.
Here is the video I made for the Real Women of Philadelphia…I did a bit better on camera this time. All I can say is…wardrobe!? (Shouted as if someone would actually come and fix that bag of a sweater I was wearing. I swear it looked much better in the mirror.)
