What I Did With 6 lbs. of Sweet Potatoes
I should have taken a "Before" photo, but I always manage to forget that part when it comes to blogging.
Instead, here's a glimpse at the aftermath of what happened to the six pounds of sweet potatoes that I picked up at the grocery story the other day:
They were on sale for a great price (evidently in time for Easter), so I decided to stock up and then chop up a bunch, resulting in a big bag full of sweet potato fries to store in the freezer.
Nothing makes a meal better than sweet potato fries, and they freeze really well without having to do any extra prep work aside from slicing and dicing: Cut 'em, put them in a bag and freeze them. That easy.
Then when you're ready to cook them, just throw them on a baking stone, spritz some olive oil over top (I like to use my Misto), sprinkle some sea salt and let them bake in the oven (350 degrees will do) for about an hour. Then enjoy!
