Fun with Sweet Potatoes: Slinky Edition

Look:

P1070943A lovely sweet potato.

P1070944Bamboo skewers for the sweet potato to sit upon.

P1070947Prepare to be…I don’t know; just prepare.

P1070950Slice.  A lot.

P1070952Stare at it.

P1070954Maybe play with it some.

P1070956Spray it all over–inside, outside…leave no place unsprayed…with PAM coconut oil.

P1070957Salt it a bit (I like that iodized sea salt), and Chinese Five Spice it everywhere.

P1070959Stuff a small handful of micro marshmallows in it.

P1070967Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes, rolling it around in the Goo Of Awesomeness a few times along the way.

Share with someone you love.  In my case, Millie.  Who was also my photographer.

I estimate this little lunch has about 125 calories, 26 grams of carbs, 3.8 grams of fiber, less than one gram of fat, 438% RDA Vitamin A, 37% RDA Vitamin C, 542 mg of potassium, and 25% RDA Iodine.

And that’s for the whole sweet potato.

I really like this lunch.
