Baked Sweet Potato
Cover a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil (I use Reynold's Brand). Otherwise you will have a lot of sticky goo to clean off your pan. If you don't mind that, just oil the pan a little. Wash whole potatoes and brush with olive oil. Bake in 350 to 375 degree oven until potatoes start to ooze (about 1.5 hours). Then they are done. Even the skins taste good! And they are good for you, too! Serve with a big lettuce salad for a great, healthful meal.
Star of Bethlehem
I tell a story about my war on the Star of Bethlehem in the garden at our old house. Do not plant this bulb. It is so invasive! My friend Joan played a little joke on me.
