Sweet Potato Stacks from Publix

During the summer, my sweet cousin Ciara visited. We took this tween raised in the city and introduced her to some nature. My husband and I took her to feed retired horses carrots, tubing down the Itchnatuckee River and saw a flooded sinkhole. Not only did we go on nature adventures, we also went out on a limb for our tongues as well. Sweet potatoes is a popular Southern vegetable. My husband and I wanted to expose Ciara to some southern food but in a fashion she would like. What better way to get a picky kid to try out a new veggie but to add bacon to it. Bacon = Glorious Victory!
