Ode to the sweet potato. Seriously, where has this thing been? I will confess, I was not a potato lover when I was a kid. I could barely tolerate french fries and I refused to eat tater tots... OK, I still don't eat tater tots. Yes I eat French fries now, but it wasn't until I moved to Dallas when I first heard about sweet potato fries.
Sweet potato fries? What? I never really thought about different potatoes being turned into French fries, so I never heard about them. Now, it's best if people do not stand between me and sweet potato fries. I will knock that person out of my way. If a restaurant doesn't have them, that's fine, I still like regular fries, but if a place does have them, I request those instead of the standard fries. And thankfully, my group's watering hole has them on the menu :-)
