one potato, two potato, three potato, four

*******update from Haiti below*******

So, I tried to make sweet potato fries because we love them. We always get the frozen ones but I had a hankerin’ to make some fresh ones.

It was somewhat of a fail. Luckily, my brother popped in just in to time to deem them “sweet potato hashbrowns.” It works for me.

Easy-peasy but don’t expect the fried, crispier version.

update received from Haiti correspondent today

Le Bonheur's team began treating patients this morning at the clinic in Croix-des-Bouquets. As word spread that a group of pediatric experts was ready and waiting to see patients, a steady stream of people began arriving at the clinic. By 9 a.m. this morning CST, more than 100 patients were waiting at the clinic to see our specialists. Our physicians had already treated one child with a wounded arm as soon as the clinic doors were open, and the team has recruited about five local students to help check patients in and keep things running smoothly. Our doctors anticipate treating many children today and will update us early this afternoon with a full report. Stay tuned!

Good stuff, huh? I was able to talk to jacob tonight and he gave me this information in more detail. There was a lady who was cooking with hot grease when the earthquake struck. She had severe grease burns and they had not been treated yet. bad stuff, but she will be good now.
