"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
i LOVE sweet potatoes! they are great steamed, home-fried,baked - mmm-mmm!I-)
In his 1930s comic strip, Popeye was unhappy when an expert told him a yam is a sweet potato, because he'd have to start saying "I sweet potato what I sweet potato and that's all that I sweet potato."
I asked my daughter to bring sweet potatoes so i could show her how my mother fixed them. She brought yams, and couldn't understand why I was upset. I even bought a bag labelled sweet potatoes at Trader Joe's, and when I opened the bag at home, I discovered yams. It really is a big difference.
I don't care what the clip says, what are called yams and what are called sweet potatoes in the markets I go to are quite different in appearance, taste, and texture.
:-) I think that is what the clip says - that sweet potatoes ain't yams.I-)
I FREAKING HATE informative videos with music louder than the people are talking.I have NO idea what her last comment was. The last word was drowned out by the music.And, NO, I don't have bad hearing. My hearing is, actually, off the TOP of the chart. I hear too MUCH. The doctors at Loyola Hospital near Chicago were amazed.
One workaround (if you want one) would be to click the "cc" and the "mute" icons. Although in this case they didn't cc the epilogue.
