Part 3 -Big Life updates

My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it. I’m holding on to the actual memories I had with my mom the letter has been given to my brother to do wh

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.
