Louis Armstrong is just a little before my time, but I always liked this song. I hope you enjoy it--you just gotta love how his eyes pop out while he sings. Then, after he's done singing, cook up a batch of sweet potatoes, and have them with grilled hamburgers for dinner.
I found this recipe online. It adds just enough sweet, and the potatoes aren't mushy like at Thanksgiving. I've become adicted to them.
HONEY ROASTED SWEET POTATOES
Yield: 6 servings (serving size 3/4 cup)
• 2 pounds red-skinned sweet potatoes
• 2 tablespoons oil
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch pieces and put in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. In a small bowl whisk together oil, honey and lemon juice. Pour mixture over potatoes in bag, and toss to coat. Pour into a 9 by 13 baking dish, or onto a cookie sheet.Sprinkle with the salt, and bake, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour, until potatoes are tender.
NOTE: This recipe has never taken an hour to cook. Stir every 10 minutes.
