Sweet Potato Rounds

Good News Everyone!

The last of my pregnancy aversions has gone away and I can now enjoy the delicious and nutritious sweet potato! I was a little nervous when Mr. Zoey brought home a 10 pound box of sweet potatoes from Costco last weekend because it was about a year ago that we bought an identical box, only to find out that I was pregnant and totally unable to tolerate all things sweet potato.

Anyway, our 10 pound box sat on the table for about 2 days with Mr. Zoey asking me to "research" sweet potato recipes and me stalling because I was afraid of what cruel fate the sweet potatoes might still have in store for me. So, as with most of the cooking these days, he finally took matters into his own hands and created these delicious sweet potato rounds.

These are super easy and super yummy and worth trying since sweet potatoes are in season right now. I am only slightly embarrassed to admit that our box is already almost half empty.

This is such a simple and lovely treat! I'm glad that you are able to enjoy it! I had a somewhat similar ordeal with acorn squash and the stomach flu. Took me years to be able to eat one again!

Way too many ingredients for this recipe! :-P

I love my sweet potato naked just like that too! You must be so happy to be over your sweet potato aversion!

Sweet potatos are wonderful! I'm sooo glad you can eat whatever you want again! I am a minimialist. I eat everything plain or with some evoo and salt or salad dressing, sometimes, ketchup.

Mmm. Sweet potatoes simple and plain are so delectable. I'm glad you're able to enjoy them. If I had a 10lb box in front of me it's probably all I'd eat until they were all gone. They're just so good.
