Rosemary Sweet Potato Wedges and Prayers for the Bear Triplets

This is one of my favorite recipes that I've found doing Weight Watchers Online. These Sweet Potato Wedges make a great appetizer or side dish for a BBQ. They are so simple, delish, and much more healthy than french fries. I really think the rosemary gives them a great flavor.

he Ingredients
- 2 large sweet potato(es), washed and patted dry
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp table salt
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed

- Preheat oven to 425ºF.
- Cut each potato into 8 or so lengthwise wedges and place on a nonstick baking sheet.
- Drizzle with oil (I use a Misto olive oil sprayer)
- Sprinkle with salt and dried rosemary.
- Roast on one side for 10-15 minutes
- Toss and roast on other side until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes more.

Serve with ketchup if your love ketchup like I do.

4 wedges (without ketchup) = 3 WW points


If you follow me on Twitter you'll know I've been tweeting about this. My dear friend Carey is pregnant with Triplets (22 weeks today). On Tuesday night Baby A's water broke. She's been in the hospital ever since, fighting to keep the Triplets alive and free of infection.

Please pray that the Triplets will stay put for a few more weeks and pray that they all stay free of infection.

And please pray for Carey's spirit. I visited her in the hospital yesterday and she said that prayers from friends, family, and strangers is what's keeping her strong and positive.

Our God is a God of miracles. Let's pray for one!

I love sweet potato fries but have never made them with rosemary. I need to try this!

Saying a prayer for your friend. That is so so scary. She's so lucky to have you there for support.

Heartbroken over the loss of the triplets, and for you, as well - so sad to have friends in such immense grief. Prayers for you and them.
