Vessi Shoes

I bought my second pair of Vessi shoes. My first pair I wore everyday since I got them. They also had great grip in the snow. They are so comfortable I stopped wearing my other shoes.  These shoes are vegan, waterproof, and they mold to your feet. You have to buy them online  at vessi’s.com. They are machine washable but I have not tried they are easy to wipe clean  My second pair is a limited edition I bought them because I walk everywhere and they have some reflection so I feel a little safer that cars will see me walking in the dark winter. I love the style.  These shoes really are waterproof. You can see an Instagram Reel of me walking in the rain here  Waterproof Shoes Instagram Reel . My pants got wet my shoes stayed dry.   

Sweet Potato/Yam Toast

Lately my social media has shown some recipes for sweet potato toast. I am still loving the toaster I received from field agent last year I wanted to try this.



sweet potato/yam toast 

I peeled a yam as I wasn't sure if the skin would burn and I was prepared to make soup with my ends but I ended up being able to cut it into four slices without any left over.



Round 1  I put the smallest two slices in the toaster and put it on the frozen setting.

Round 2  I put it back on regular toast I should have put it on frozen again

Round 3 I put it on frozen again

Round 4 I put it on bagel and it was done.

At Round 2 I decided to put the other two slices in the toaster oven. I spread some ghee and salt on them and put it in the toaster oven for 10 minutes on toast. It took another 10 minutes on toast and then another 5 minutes on broil for these two be done.

I have been eating avocado toast for twenty years long before its popularity. I spread some cream cheese and the toaster slices and added the avocado. This was very good really tasted like bread toast. It takes 4 rounds in the toaster on frozen setting for two slices so not the fastest method but I could definitely make this while getting ready and have this for breakfast as it is just a matter of pressing the button to toast.


The toaster oven version tasted completely different it tasted like a baked sweet potato it was really sweet and more like dessert. It is really strange how the cooking method changes the taste completely.    I recommend using a toaster over the toaster oven even though it requires a little more labour.

And day two with a sweet potato this time I just cut it in half and put it i the toaster on frozen and dark 4 times. It was good but I like the texture of the yam better.
