So much to say, but here is the most important thing.
Lori-o is having everyone over for snacks and drinks. I couldn't decide what to make, so lonelydumptruck suggested we do bacon and yam-tot skewers like the tater tot ones we had at the bourbon tasting. I need to limit the amount of potatoes I eat because of the Sampter's.
Anyway...the first try was too wet, so lonelydumptruck did the 'squeeze out the excess liquid' stage. When I did it, I got a wet towel. He went all WWF on the yams and got a fine orange goo out of them. That came out too loose to fry well too, so then we hit on it.
