July 8 - 6m26d - Sweet Potato Sticks

Today was something new for all of us. In the over 6 years that Jayson and I have been together, we have never eaten sweet potato, never bought it, never ordered it, never even looked at it at the grocery store.

In many sites that I read, sweet potato sticks was something that was recommended to give to your baby if you are doing baby led weaning. Today was the day.

I looked for a recipe online. This was it:

1 sweet potato, medium size
2 tsp cinnamon
olive oil cooking spray

Peel the potato.
Cut it into "fries" - around 1/4in thick and 4in long.
Put the strips in a bowl and spray very lightly with the oil.
Sprinkle on the cinnamon, then toss together.
Line a baking sheet with foil and place your sweet potato fries on it in a single layer.
Bake at 350 deg F, 180 deg C for around 45 mins.

So, I followed the recipe.

I don't think that Jayson or I will be eating this again, however, Lily seemed to enjoy it.

She has to empty the bowl first.

She looked at them for a long time, we weren't sure that she was going to end up eating any!

After her first bite:

She seemed to like the sweet potato sticks after a few bites.

She loves to examine what she is about to put in her mouth (only when it's food!) otherwise, she just shoves it in, no matter what it is!

See what I mean:
