You guys, I’ve eaten so many sweet potatoes in the last few weeks that I might be turning orange. I know this happens with carrots. In fact my dad, when he was a youth, ate so many carrots every day for lunch that his skin did, in fact, generate an orange-y hue for a short time (or so my mother says, anyway). And now I fear the same fate for my own skin. And it’s not that self-tanning orange glow we’re going for — it’s like Violet Beauregarde, but as an orange instead of a blueberry.
Well just stop eating sweet potatoes, you say, and I laugh and laugh. I laugh because will you just look at these bacon, chive and sour cream stuffed sweet potatoes above? Topped with melty cheese and even more bacon?
Ah, yes. I see you’re laughing now, too. Soon you’ll also be worrying about orange skin.
