Last week we had my grandson Liam while his parents were on a cruise vacation. He’s just learned to walk and falls a lot, so a cruise ship on rough seas is no place for him. So Grandma got to love on him this week.
Finding veggies he will eat is not an easy task. But then when I realize that I don’t really like veggies either, I’m a little easier on him. Then I think about his parents and they are not really fond of veggies either. So what to feed this child in the veggie department when he pushes unwanted veggies back out of his mouth?
Sweet potatoes to the rescue! And thankfully I have sweet potatoes on hand.
I’ve never done much with sweet potatoes before so it was a learning experience for me as well. But it was super simple!
Either scrub your sweet potato or peel it. I did it both ways but the peeled version seemed to be easier to eat as the skins didn’t get in the way.
Then dice up into small pieces. Put them in a saucepan, sprinkle with a little bit of cinnamon, and put in enough water to cover them. Set it on the stove and bring to a boil. Boil until the pieces are tender, about 10-15 minutes or so depending on the size of the pieces.
- Sweet Potatoes
- Cinnamon, sprinkling
- Peel or scrub and dice potatoes.
- Place in pot with a sprinkling of cinnamon and cover with water.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until pieces are softened.
Yeah, I know, hardly a recipe but that’s what I did and he loved them, as you can see in the pictures above.
Until next time, God bless,
