Here’s another one of those “meant to be” moments. Is it because I’m always looking for them or do they just happen to me more than I deserve? I cannot even remember what I was talking about the other day (could have been so many things!) but either a blog reader or a Facebook friend, suggested I look at “I’m still workin” but I had no idea what “I’m still workin” is or where it could be found. I googled it and poked around a couple of sites but planned to go back to a more thorough search when I had more time.
This week (sale ending today), the Kroger stores in our area had sweet potatoes for .57/pound. Vince was in there with me on Saturday and we got a good size bag of them. This morning Vince said “Are you going to go to Kroger and get more sweet potatoes because today is the last day of the sale?” I said “No . . because I’m not real sure what to do with them and I don’t want to buy them if I don’t know how I’m going to save them.”
Then, right after lunch, I was emailing back and forth with my friend, Judy, and she asked me if I had ever watched the videos at “I’m still workin“. Darn! That’s two people in about 3 days that have asked me about that site and I had never heard of it so I asked my friend, Judy, to send me the link. She did and what do you think is the first video that caught my eye? Yep . . canning sweet potatoes.
The “I’m still workin” lady has the best canning videos! They were so good that I tried to listen to one on my cell phone while driving to Kroger to get more sweet potatoes . . and I have a very small data plan but was willing to explain to Vince why I went over my allowed amount of data.
For a little more than $11, I got almost 20 pounds of sweet potatoes and for that same almost $11, I’ll end up with about 30 points of candied sweet potatoes. I’m putting them up with a very light syrup. I got about half of them done this afternoon and will get the rest of them done tomorrow.
Tonight we had sweet potatoes and steak.
But the star of the show was the salad with fried goat cheese. I love goat cheese and I love it best battered in panko and fried.
Have I ever told you that I’d rather eat at home than most anywhere else? 🙂
