Camote (Sweet Potato) Bread – Gluten-free

Good news on the chemical warfare in my bathroom after the last storm. Jose, when he came, assured me it just needs a flow of water, like the kitchen has, from above, and a tube coming up out of the earth, like the casita has; which never smells. They filled the drain, re-dug the trench way out of the field, and put the new pipe in.Whew. A $%ˆ%$- load of anxiety left my shoulders.
