a mouse in the house

mmm, sweet potatoes. my favorite way to prep them is to give them a good long bake in the toaster oven. the sides caramelize into this intense sweetness while the insides become super tender for a delicious bite. love eating it when i feel cold and want to see steam rising from my food.

the last time i baked one, guess what i found?! doesn't this blob of burnt sweet potato juice look like a famous mouse to you? perhaps next time, i can get an image of the virgin mary or jesus christ instead. just imagine the loads and loads of people from around the country who will trek to my wee house just so that they can catch a glimpse of the miracle juice, locked behind a glass case on a raised pedestal. i think i will charge $1 per viewing.

since this mickey mouse blob wasn't as exciting as a religious one, i just showed it to my dog charlie who promptly tried to eat it. bad dog! bad dog! stop trying to look cute!
