But right now a sweet potato is baking in the oven, and it should be ready in an hour or so. I'm debating whether or not I should put sweet butter on it. A couple of weeks ago the market had a sale on butter, and I'd planned to get two pounds, but there was only one pound of salted butter left on the shelf, so I bought it and a pound of sweet butter. I've been wondering ever since what I should put the sweet butter on. Sweet butter is a bit of a mystery to me. If I put it on a sweet potato, will that be too much sweet at once? Or are sweet potatoes called sweet potatoes because they are supposed to have sweet butter on them? Have I been doing it wrong all my life?
I wouldn't be surprised.
But I'm still feeling dopey from that five hour afternoon/evening nap. I woke up in darkness twice today, and waking up in darkness depresses me. Now I keep expecting the sun to come up at any moment, and it won't for almost eleven hours. By that time I'll probably be taking another nap.
Maybe I ought to have made scrambled eggs for dinner. Do eggs go with sweet potatoes?
