As The Potato Peels...



click here for the last gripping installment of As The Potato Peels

When we last left ECM and her evil identical twin Christina Shane, ECM was stranded on a deserted island torn between two men Tony and Eric. Meanwhile back in Green Valley, in ECM's kitchen, Christina Shane was having a minor breakdown but what she didn't know is that someone was watching her from the window.

Suddenly there was a knock at the door.

{cue ominous music}

Christina Shane gasped. "Who could that be on this dark and stormy night?" she thought as she rapidly tidied herself up to go answer the door.
"Michelle!"

"Hello Mom. Did you forget about me? Wait, that's right, Aunt Christina you didn't forget because you didn't know I was in town, did you?"

"Michelle, I won't lie. It's me, your Auntie Christina. I thought your mom sent you to reform school after that unfortunate incident."

"She did, Aunt Michelle but I had this feeling that you were up to something. Mom told me to trust those instincts when its about you because she said you and I share a special bond."

"Dear God! She didn't tell you, did she?"

"Tell me what, Aunt Christina?" Michelle eyes narrowed suspiciously.

"Come in out of the rain. I'll make you your favorite sweet potato latkes, we need to talk."

Where is ECM?
What special bond do Michelle and her Aunt Christine Shane share?
Why was Michelle sent to reform school?

Stay tuned, all these questions and more will be answered on the next episode of "As The Potato Peels"

Sweet Potato Latkes:

6 medium sized sweet potatoes
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
2 tbs. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 small yellow onion
1 small granny smith apple

Line a colander with paper towels or cheesecloth. Peel and grate potatoes, onion, and apple on a coarse grater. Mix together and place into colander lined with cheesecloth. Let stand for 5 minuets and then squeeze out remaining liquid. Beat eggs lightly; add grated potatoes, onion, and apple and blend well. Add salt, flour, baking powder and mix thoroughly. Pour 1 inch oil into skillet and heat. Drop mix by tablespoons into hot oil. Fry and brown on both sides. Serve hot. Drain off any liquid before frying each cake. Serve with sour cream or apple sauce. Makes 20.
