While lounging around this weekend, mom got a wild hair up her butt and decided to try to make some homemade sweet potato treats! Usually mom's experiments work out, and even if they don't, I can't really tell. I mean, I eat poop, so my palate isn't too extravagant!
Mom started by taking a sweet potato, washing it off, cutting it in half horizontally then cutting 1/8-1/3 inch horrizontal slices. She cut her finger a few times, which caused her to go into some weird word fits, but by the second potato she got the hang of it.
Then she placed it on a cookie sheet, baked at 200-250 for two hours...flipping them every 30 min. I waited patiently...two hours is a long freakin' time. Then they were ready...well not really, then mom let them sit out for like 30 min. FINALLY they were ready for taste test and they were yummy! Mom bought us some storebought dried potatoes but those buggars are expensive, so this is a new way for us to get our tators!! Duncan and I both love the tators and they're healthy or something. I don't care, I just know they taste good!
I also proved to mom that while I love her buying me toys, I am perfectly entertained by a stick. I found this big one in the yard and commenced to practicing my ninja/Star Wars/medieval staff squirrel attack moves for like 30 min. Then I bit it in half. Maybe she can make me some "num-chucks"?
