I'm a fan of the humble sweet potato. They are oh so good for you. I like to bake them in a 405 degree oven for 40 minutes. Just poke holes in them with a fork and drizzle them with a tiny amount of olive oil. When they come out, hit them with kosher salt.
The skin gets a bit browned; this is a very yummy way to eat sweet potatoes.
On both a sad (and happy) note, Jason informs me that Pei-Wei at 7th St./Glendale is open again - you will remember the shenanigans that took place recently with said "Sheriff Arpayaso." A lot of hard working nice folks lost their jobs, and their residence here in the U.S.
Grrrrr! The kitchen wench sympathizes with hard working kitchen people, hotel people, landscape people who come here from Mexico in search of work to feed their families.
