Sweet Potato Fries

In an effort to get Caleb to try new foods his Auntie Leah made sweet potato fries with him. This will be the first in , hopefully, a series of "Picky Eater" recipes.
He always enjoys helping in the kitchen, we'll see how he feels about doing dishes in a few years.
 Auntie Leah made these with just some olive oil and sea salt so they would be as simple and plain as possible.
3 large sweet potatoes
olive oil
If you would like, a sprinkle of cayenne or chili powder would be good too.
First, peel the potatoes.
Then slice.
And slice again into sticks.
This is where Caleb took over, spray some olive oil onto a sheet pan.
Then a little salt.
Then load the pan with the sweet potato sticks and drizzle with a little more olive oil and salt, toss them around in it.

Bake at 450F for 25-30 minutes.
Serve with Chicken Nuggets and green beans or fruit.
Good stuff!!
