Any Ideas?

I visited the Farmer's Market again yesterday and in addition to some potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions, I came home with these.

I've got a few ideas but am open to something new-any ideas for sweet potatoes?

I love magazines this time of year-filled with baking, decorating, and gift ideas. I'm such a magazine whore! Of course when I saw this I had to pick it up! Even DH commented on the thickness of it!!

I also enhanced my yarn stash after visiting my LYS.

I bought some Cascade 220 (color 7830-coral)-I recently bought some in color 8895 but it clashed with the ribbon I had for this project. If anyone is interested in 2 hanks of the 8895 (it's a bright Christmas like red) let me know! I also purchased some Baby Alpaca yarn for some fingerless gloves, and some Noro also sneaked in to my basket for another set of fingerles gloves. I joined the Fingerless Gloves knitalong hoping it would encourage me to finish the ones I started in June, but all that's happened is that I've found other patterns I like better and I keep buying yarn for them!

To sum up, I didn't do any knitting this week, and because I clearly do not have enough W.I.P.'s (4), I bought yarn for 3 more projects-makes sense in my world!!

Before I forget (November 1st is coming up fast!), here's the link for NaBloPoMo. I know I'm not disciplined enough to do it, but maybe some of y'all are!

I saw a recipe for regular mashed potatoes that had mashed sweet potatoes swirled into them. Not sure if it's any good, but it LOOKED good!

I'm not big on sweet potatoes usually, unless they are mashed up with a lot of brown sugar and bourbon, but a couple days ago I had some sweet potato french fries that were absolutely fantastic.
