So two weekends ago I was going through my recipes and picked out Loaded Potato Soup as something to make that weekend, but I didn’t get around to making it until this Saturday. I haven’t had potato soup since I was in middle school (maybe high school?) at my best friends house. I remember it was delicious with carrots and celery and ever since then I have meant to make it again and probably have three or four recipes.
This version is a take on the Load Potato Skins, another one of my favorite ways to have potatoes. I may have been short a piece of bacon and had a shallot to use instead of an onion and of course I was using whole milk. I think that have the extra bacon and onion would have made it a bit more flavorful, but it was still good and it will stay good in the fridge of a few days.
Since a whole week had passed, I was at the farmers market again and saw sweet potatoes, which have become a new favorite of mine. So yummy, so many things to do with them. A few weeks ago I came across this recipe for Sweet Potato Fries and have been thinking about making them. So I bought a few and as the guys at Simply Recipes says “These. Are. So. Addictive.”

I used just paprika and salt for the seasoning and baked them for a lot longer cause I was trying to get them crispy, which I failed at but they were still very tasty and completed my very potato dinner. Does anyone have any ideas how to get them crispy?
