on my drive home, Friday, i just couldn’t help making a detour back to the store to confirm my yam purchase… i marched right back to the wee produce section… to find the Sweet Potatoes and Yams happily smiling at me….

upon further inspection, the Sweet Potatoes appeared to be the ones lighter in color, and in fact, what Grandpa was surely craving.

and, this time, there was a much kinder young gentleman on staff to assist me.

i brought them to mom, and she confirmed that these were the ones!

SWEET potatoes were the answer… which gives me this odd sense of déjà vu… i feel like Mom and I have had this conversation about every year this time… what we call Sweet Potatoes are really Yams… and therein lies the difference.

YEA Grandpa! Happy Day!
