One sweet potato (1/2-1 lb)
Earth Balance (optional)
Put sweet potato on a paper towel on a plate, poke with a fork a few times, and microwave for 5-10 minutes. Mine was about 3/4 pound, and 8 minutes seemed just right. Add Earth Balance. Enjoy!
Now, on to the debate (no, not the one about yams and sweet potatoes - Whole Foods claims sweet potatoes are a kind of yam, Barbara Kafka of Vegetable Love says they're different, and I'm not sure I care). No, this debate: what do we call the meal that's eaten in the late afternoon, after a late morning brunch? Lundinner? Dunch? Linner?
