Sweet Potato Home Fries

By Ange's Table

Hello again.

How are you doing today?  What have you been cooking lately?  I am trying to keep our meals interesting, since we all have so much time on our hands.  😂  

The other day, I felt like having breakfast for dinner.  One of my favorite breakfast foods from a diner is Home Fries.  Unfortunately, I cannot eat white potato.  I have successfully re-introduced some night shades into my diet without incident.  Potato was not one of those things.  I can use some chili powders, and certain dried spices.  But I’m out on the fresh potoato.  

All that did was make me work harder to replace the things that I love most, with foods that will not make me feel like my stomach will explode after eating.  Or strange rashes on my skin, that mysteriously come and go.
