The other day I stopped at a local vegetable stand and saw a root vegetable called boniato, a relative of the sweet potato. I decided to give it a try. Apparently the boniato is quite popular in Florida. Please check the link for some interesting facts and recipes on how to prepare boniato. I'm going to try the Scalloped Boniato and Pineapple.
While looking for recipes I have learned the sweet potato or boniato was often depicted in Moche culture in their pottery. That's a potato water vessel fashioned by a potter from the Moche culture. I'm fascinated by these ancient people from Peru and have been reading about them.
This cottontail was in our back yard the other day. I didn't remember to say white rabbit this morning, but Gary did, hope that helps. Today I'm installing the pottery exhibit at the library. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
