Carrots & Sweet Potatoes...

My friend Lisa Knight Voveris sent this to me today.  She thought that I should share the article with you.   I am now going to have to find some recipes with Carrots or Sweet Potatoes in them.  I can see my Mom smiling already. She loves Sweet Potatoes!  I am always up for people giving me ideas or sharing information with me that I can pass along to my readers.  If you have anything that you would like to share with me or would like me to include in my blog, please feel free to e-mail me at : ( Mal_1971@hotmail.com )  If I do use something that you send me, I will make sure that I give you the credit.   I feel that we are a TEAM and if one wins we all win!              Just a little disclaimer:  If you send me something I reserve the right to use the information in part, or in it's entirety.  I may use it the day you send it to me or not at all.  I look forward to your input & making this a blog that you enjoy to read and want to share with others even if you never plan on doing a 3-Day event.
