The tower of power!
Behold the fabled tower! It is said to control our ids. When it tells us to sacrifice a Chia Pet in its honor, we do it with a grateful smile. With clay and foliage scattered on the floor, dance over it with your arms stretched out to the glowing orange mash. Listen to it coo to you, “It’s okay. Go for it! Embrace the unknown. Give into your desires.” Perhaps you’re bewildered by the fact that a side dish is talking to you. Don’t over-think it. Believe what the creamy, dreamy yams tell you. They have your best interest at heart. And I’m not just saying this because I’m the high priest of the sweet potato sex cult. Kool-Aid, anyone?

1. 2 sweet potatoes skinned and shredded into bit size pieces
2. 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
3. 1 onion chopped coarsely
4. 1 handful of mozzarella (or chef’s choice) cheese
5. 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Add another tablespoon of olive oil and toss in the shredded sweet potatoes. Stir in the sweet potatoes with the onions all together until they become soft too. (approx 6 min)
Turn off the heat. Throw a handful of cheese over the sweet potatoes and cover the pan. Allow the heat to melt the cheese all over your marvelous creation (approx 1 min) and pull up the lid like Dr. Frankenstein. Serve up your masterpiece on a plate with scrambled eggs or fruit or an indecent proposal. Salt to taste.
