Fun things to do with root vegetables: Sweet potato fries with spicy mayo

Sweet potato fries are the easiest thing to make, cut the sweet potato into large thin lengths. You can fry them, bake them or saute them in a pan. It is the mayo that is the kicker here. I am pretty mild mannered, but every once and a while I get craving so intense that my Dr. Jeckel comes out. I remember on day I had a craving for cake so bad I took a dozen day old doughnuts from a local bakery and didn’t get all the way home before I sat down, tore the box open, and started shoving them into my mouth, giggling manically and making weird gutteral noises like “URRRMMMMM.” Is that unhealthy? Anyway, recently I became a mayonaise monster. I beat an egg, mustard, lemon juice, and oil together using my housemate Sean’s fancy blender.  And after cackling briefly with delight, I made myself a macaroni salad. It was delicious, but them I had this jar of mayonaise. A couple days later I made sweet potato fries, and thinking back fondly to my summer in France, wanted to make curry fries. I didn’t have any curry powder, I mixed chinese five spice with tumeric, cumin, and garlic powder. Then I mixed it into my mayo, and poured over my fries. If you wanted to make this recipe vegan, I have to admit that veganaise is pretty darn tasty.
