The reason we figured this out was because there appears to be a sweet potato shortage in our area!!! For the past couple of weeks, the grocery store hasn't had any or hardly any sweet potatoes available. And the co-op only has organic sweet potatoes (prohibitively expensive) and not its usual stock of conventional.
It scared me!
Sweet potatoes are a staple in my diet. They are a major source of my carbs and my starch. They fill out a meal. (we also eat other squashes, like acorn or butternut... turnips and rutabaga also fill this role... but sweet potatoes are my absolute favorite!).
So what did I do? Bought up every last sweet potato my store could offer! Hahaha :)
Not really worried about it. But it was amusing to think about how reliant we are on sweet potatoes - they are what bread used to be for us!
Short post today, back to walking on break :)
