My mom always brings me interesting fruits and vegetables she finds at the Asian markets. This time she surprised me with some adorable Japanese sweet potatoes. With khaki-colored skin similar to a regular American potato, it's the inner deep purple flesh that gives you a moment of pause. It's very similar to taro but has an incredible natural sweetness that makes it the perfect healthy dessert. I just poked some holes in the potato with a fork, baked these for an hour on 350 degrees, and they came out perfectly soft. Add a little butter or margarine for that extra boost. Yum!
The purple color scared away the hubby but that just means more for me!
On a side note:
I finally decided to add the Followers widget to my sidebar (underneath the Bloglovin' icon) for those who use Google Friend Connect. I'm more of a Google Reader girl myself, but I wanted to give you the option to pick your poison.
Update: After researching some more functions on Google Reader, I realized it will add all your followed blogs from Blogger. Definitely good to know!
