White sweet potatoes freak me out a little bit, lol. That sounds like a yummy combo, though!

Confession: I didn't even know the 83rd
Annual Academy Awards were on tonight *blushes*.

Your sweet potato combo is inspired: I have to try that out some time but we can only get the boring orange sweet ps around here :(

Interesting idea with the potato - I might have to try that one.
I'm so excited about the Oscars - I won't be watching though because a) I don't have sattelite and it's on Sky TV in the UK
b) I'll be tucked up in bed because it'll be the early hours here :(

Actually, the other weekend at my friends wedding they brought out the vegetarian dish for me and it was a stack with marinated portobellos as the "Bread". Japanese sweet potato is so yummy. It's starchier and a bit sweeter I think :) I haven't had one in such a long time.

I didn't know the Oscars were tonight! I don't have TV but maybe I'll watch it online later. I doubt it lol. I always forget those kinds of things.

XOXO much love!

p.s. your comment on my blog made me smile!!!

I had no idea the Oscars were tonight, but my tv just got shut off today so I guess I won't be watching it. ha

I've got some sweet potatoes that need to be eaten, I'm thinking I'll try this :)

I've seen bloggers put AB on sweet potatoes before, but never jam! I bet it's good though!

I want to watch the Oscars but I don't have cable at my apartment. :( I guess I'll just read about the winners online!

I think nut butters and Jam on anything food related taste frickin awesome....actually, let me rethink that statement...

Haha, I think AB&J sweet potato is a great idea!

Missy said... [reply]

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said... [reply]

I am watching!!!! I am going to fast forward the boring parts though :-)

Jess said... [reply]

Sounds really good!!

Jess@atasteofconfidence said... [reply]

Monet said... [reply]

Watching...and loving it! I'm such a sucker for pretty dresses :-) And this is quite the unique take on my favorite sandwich. I want to try! Thanks for sharing, my dear! May your week burst forth with love, good food and peace!

I watched them a little bit and I was sooo disappointed because I wanted Javier Bardem to win best actor!!!
That sweet potato looks delicious :)
Hope you have a great week Kelsey!

I've put peanut or almond butter on many a sweet potato, but never jelly... I like the way you think!

Jenny said... [reply]

Why the f have I never thought to put this on my sweet tatter?! :O I always put almond butter or pb but not jelly! Gah must try asap

malpaz said... [reply]

I MUST TELL YOU, THIS IS A FREAKIN AWESOME IDEA... like, i never ever would have thought of it and my mouth is now watering :)

VEGirl said... [reply]

I didn't watch the oscars, but I did use this idea yesterday! I used pb however-- normally I'm not a big fan of the stuff, but I have been getting massive peanut butter cravings.

Sweet potato has kind of smooth texture on its flesh. So I am just thinking that combining sweet potato with jelly is not a great idea. I think that would be great to have sweet potato with something crunchy. Thanks for the idea.

Sunny Sattva said... [reply]

I do this too! Sweet pot (orange flesh) cut in half and on with the pb and fruit jam, sometimes banana too for extra craziness.Glad to find am not alone lol.
