Experiment #17: Sweet Potatoes May 8, 2008

Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast, Dessert.

I bought a sweet potato the week before and still haven’t used it [I wanted to save it for something…but I have no idea what that “something” was..] so I decided to have it with breakfast this morning:

Sweet potatoes, blueberries, soymilk, cinnamon, ground ginger, and a little brown sugar

I should definitely add more sugar next time…and maybe boil the potatoes longer so it’s softer~sweet potatoes just doesn’t taste right when it’s 0.75% raw. But anyway! The bowl smelled so good I spent about half an hour sniffing it before actually eating 😛

As good as it was, not enough to fill me up 😦 But I didn’t have a cup of coffee this morning, so maybe that was why I also ended up having 2[!] slices of this:

Commence drooling!

Whole wheat green tea cake. Mom baked it yesterday [I helped! :D]–we used my bag of whole wheat flour, mom was skeptical, but after she tasted it she thought it was alright! I think I’m well on my way to converting her to my whole wheat ways XD

The cake was more moist than expected, but I like moist and doughy baked stuff so I was happy 😛

Heheh having mom around sure made meals more exciting–’cause I usually just boil stuff, add vinegar or parmesan, and eat. 😛 I took pictures of the meals~but I think I’ll probably post everything in another entry or this one’ll be too long!

Oh my gosh!! Sweet potatoes for breakfast sound amazing!!

I do that all the time. I always buy something intending to make something I had imagined at some point, then completely forget! Then it all goes bad.

Green tea cake?? My goodness your mom is cool!! I totally agree about mothers. They just know what to do.
