SWEET Potatoes is Right

The very first meals that Josh made me for me when we started dating was lemon chicken, sweet potatoes, and a salad. I was impressed! I certainly couldn't cook like that at the time. I was shocked that he could. I was so impressed in fact that I held my tongue about not really loving lemon flavored food (aside from candy). That was a big mistake. For months Josh made me lemon chicken because he thought I loved it.

This actually happened with a few other things at the beginning of our relationship. I was afraid to tell Josh if I didn't like something he had made for dinner or that I was allergic to the flowers that he kept buying for me. Because I was always so appreciative of his gestures which were always so sweet, he kept on doing what he was doing. FINALLY I had enough courage to tell him that I was a picky eater and had a million allergies. He was so upset, not that I didn't like what he was making and buying, but that he had accidentally almost killed me on numerous occasions. Huge lesson learned. Honesty, no matter what it is about and how much you think you are shielding the other person's feelings, is the best policy. In my effort to be polite to Josh, we almost had a catastrophe on our hands.

Luckily for both of us, I truly loved his sweet potatoes. They are so tasty and easy to make. I can't get enough of them. Since we have been eating potatoes non-stop after the great potato stockpile of 2010/2011, I have had my favorite side dish many times in the last few months. These potatoes never get old!

2 potatoes makes more than enough for the 2 of us.

You can either cut them very thin to make chip-like potatoes or a little thicker to have 'meatier' ones. Both taste great!

Once the potatoes are all laid out, sprinkle olive oil, pepper, and lawry's (or regular table salt) sparingly. Rosemary leaves go on last and each potato should have at least one.

Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes...or longer if you want them crispy or they are thicker.

Serve as the perfect side to any meal!

Stay tuned for more meals featuring this tasty sweet potato treat!
