|Brynwood Needleworks - Brynwood's Taggart - January 2017|
This week is off to a great start. I helped Mom in the kitchen yesterday.
|Brynwood Needleworks - Sweet Potato Inspector Tag|
At Christmastime, our granddaughter's dog, Lulu (a real sweetheart) gave Bella and me presents! (We had a few for her, too.) Each of us got a container like this, filled with dried sweet potatoes. Even though Bella and I had our own private stash of goodness, they've been gone since about...um...the week after we got 'em.
|Brynwood Needleworks - Tag and Bella's Sweet Potato Treats|
Mom asked our daughter-in-law how she made 'em so Mom could make more. No dehydrator needed. Just set the oven for 250º; clean the outside of the sweet potatoes (you don't even have to take the skin off!); slice the spuds real thin; and put on a cookie sheet in the oven for about three hours.
That's it. Dependin' on how thin you slice, the sweet potato might be crispy or chewy. Mom didn't want them too thick because they'd still be moist enough to get moldy if they didn't get eaten right away. (No worries there.)

Mom asked me if I'd taste 'em to see if she did them right. 'scuse me while I give em a little chew. Nom Nom Nom
|Brynwood Needleworks - Tag's Seal of Approval|
Yup. They definitely get my Seal of Approval! They're lip-smackin' good! I'm really glad she bought more sweet potatoes, 'cuz I can see these are going to be a staple for the furry kids here at Brynwood! Bella's lovin' 'em, too!
Mom can make treats for us any ol' time.
Just as long as broccoli isn't involved. (hee hee)
I'll see you again in seven. 'til then...
"Chase A Dream - Or A Squirrel".
P.S. Mom said that if you cut 'em real thin and add salt while they're bakin', you'll end up with "people" sweet potato chips! No salt for dogs, though. Ours are delicious just plain!
