Welcome to week TWENTY-FIVE of my dear, dear friend Patty Wysong's From A 2 Z 4 U and me. (Just one more letter. WoWzers!) We're working through the alphabet - one letter each Tuesday. No rules, other than your post has to relate to the letter of the week. Link up at Ordinary Lives and check out everyone else's post. Click on the graphic above for more details, and stop by Patty's blog to link up.Is there a food that you truly enjoy, but nobody else in your family likes it? A delectable treat that tickles your taste buds, but your spouse and kids would rather eat dirt than consume?
And is this food one that needs to be cooked - so it's not a matter of just grabbing it from the store and stuffing it in your mouth? It take EFFORT to prepare it for just one person. And sometimes, it just doesn't feel like it's worth that effort.
It hasn't always been this way. My son, Andrew, LOVED them as a baby. For quite a while, they were his favorite baby food. Orange was a common stain color on his bib, and, of course, all over his face.
But his tastes changed to correspond more with my husband's (who doesn't even like to have one near him LOL) and daughter's. So I'm the sole sweet potato/yam lover in my house. And maybe I'm lazy, but rarely do I take the trouble of picking one up and baking it just for myself.

So I wait for Thanksgiving, when someone else MIGHT bring some to the family gathering (it's not too popular among the hubby's family either). Or I keep my eye out for it on the menu when we eat out. (I'm SO glad they're becoming more popular)
Every once in a while, I'll pick up a can of yams, or buy a sweet potato and bake it and have it for lunch. But it's not common. Perhaps I'll go treat myself with one...
If there aren't any at Thanksgiving.
Thanks for reading! Be sure to stop by Patty's blog for more Y posts.
