Right then, from plantains to yams!! Do you use yams in the same way as you'd use sweet pototoes?X
LOL!! Yams are very different to sweet potatoes. Americans call sweet potatoes yams but in Africa, yams are referred to a large long tuber that's more like regular potato (though a bit starchier with a slight bitter note). And like the potato it can be boiled, fried like chips, roasted, mashed (pounded yam) etc. I love it and its a free food on a green or EE day!!

More pics I found on the internet! I do love my piccies (they say a thousand words afterall :D )

Yep that's exactly what they are! They're basically fruit gum/chewy sweets. I love them and try not to buy them too often. Before SW I used to eat them by the bagful but these days I have 2 or 3 as a sweet treat. There are all sorts available now, percy pig and pals, reversy percy, percy piglets, percy piglet and friends etc etc. They're all delicious!

Here's a link to pics

Thursday 06 May - EE

Went to the gym today!!! And I hated every minute. It was a circuit training class made up mostly of men trying to outdo each other. I was not great at it... at all... lol. But I stuck it out to the end and it was better than laying in bed all day which I could easily have done, being my day off. I expect I will suffer over the next few days, sigh... I'll try a different class on Sunday, maybe pilates or something else that's gentle lol.
