Potatoholics Anonymous

After 5 months and 6 days I had a Sweet Potato Relapse! 

The last time I had Sweet Potato Wedges was here.
 I knew I was addicted and needed to cut down!

Since then, I was doing a great job at balancing my cravings for sweet potatoes by limiting
my portion sizes... but we're only human, and it was only a matter of time before I caved :)

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem haha

I cut up 2 jumbo white sweet potatoes and 2 jumbo orange sweet potatoes

Because it had been so long since I made this, I had to refer to
my original recipe for the oven temperature and cooking time!

They roasted just the way I like them; slightly darkened outside but still soft inside

You know me, always taking a million photos

Then I piled them into a large bowl

Not quite as high as my epic "Spud Mountain" Post

Turns out, my taste buds have changed... I no longer enjoyed
 these like I once had. I guess I wasn't as addicted as I thought...

I'm addicted to pumpkin puree.... It's bad. I go through a can every 2 days.
On a positive note, I'm planning on having a sweet potato with my dinner tonight! hahahahaha
Don't worry! We are ALL addicted!

I love roasted sweet potatoes -- but I like mine with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon on top. Yum!

I think it's a great problem to have, all potatoes are my weakness!

I love potatoes too!! I could eat a giant bowl of potatoes for dinner and be perfectly happy. I wish my husband was the same way!

I flippin' LOVE potatoes an sweet potatoes (baked please!). I have only ever managed to fit in about two those.... I can't compare with your awesome track record! (granted I always have a bazillion topping on them, like bean and greens and nooch for potatoes and nut butter and fruit for sweet potatoes)

Pretty sure I need to roast a sweet potato now. And I just happen to have one in my cupboard. Lunch tomorrow perhaps?
