Charlie’s Best Sweet Potatoes

Sorry to be so late in posting, but our internet was down from about this time yesterday until Just Now.


I went to the grocery yesterday, and came home to the most heavenly aroma. Charlie had decided to fry some sweet potatoes.

Yes, fry. He peeled them and sliced them lengthwise, very thin, and fried them in butter at low heat. He sprinkled them with sugar and cinnamon, too.

He said they cooked quickly and would scorch if you weren’t careful. When they first came out of the pan, they were a little crispy, which was nice. After they cooled slightly, they were soft, which was also nice.

If you’ve ever been to a restaurant that serves sweet potato fries with a side of cinnamon butter, this is like that, only better.

Also, our #1 daughter made some caramel popcorn and brought us some. She’s promised to give me her recipe, and I’ll share that when I get it.

Meanwhile — sweet potatoes! Yum!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What’s your favorite root crop and why? Give that to a character.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
