Someone has wayyyy too much time on their hands.

This is dumb, and not as awesome as the last one, but I thought I'd share.

From memory with no review. This is a true recipe for disaster, but luckily, even I was unable to screw it up.

I made the egg/ onion mixture a little too dry, but the pork came out well.

Without setting anything on fire this time!

Last time I tried this, I overheated a pan of oil, and nearly took my face off/ burned the house down. Fun stuff. Only not really. I had never deep fried anything before. [Now we have a small deep-fat fryer, and I much prefer this method. It's more idiot proof.]

Last time before that I managed anything that dumb was when I was 8, and set my hair on fire with my chemistry set.

Anyone else have any amazing pyrotechnic tales from the kitchen?

Sweet potatoes. Are fucking delicious.

November is coming, and Thanksgiving with it, so it occurs to me other people might actually contemplate eating one of my favorite vegetables.

Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin C, A, and beta carotene, and are generally good for you when they haven't been drenched in brown sugar or marshmallows.

There is also the quaint 'Yam vs. Sweet Potato' debate: What I buy [tapered ends, orange or white flesh, sweet flavor] in the grocery store are often labeled as 'Garnet Yams'. This has something to do with FDA regulations saying that Sweet Potatoes must be labeled as Yams in this country, for some unknown, and probably nonsensical reason. There are probably not any true Yams of any kind for sale in this part of the country unless you go to an asian food or specialty store. True yams are HUGE, lack tapered ends, have white flesh, and a very starchy flavor to them.

I cook sweet potatoes by washing them, piercing their skins with a fork, wrapping them in a paper towel, and microwaving them whole for 6 minutes, flipping them over once in the middle. I then eat them whole, and try not to burn myself.

Try it. They're good, and if you decide you hate them, they'd make a great projectile.
