Sweet Potato Whip with Strawberry Swirl

Jose was going to so some work for me, but he can’t right now. Want to know why? Because he’s going on a walk! A three-day walk from San Pedro to Loja to Catamayo, wow! A celebration of Maria Del Cisne. He says he won’t bring a blanket, “It’s too nice out.” Just water and food, but no cooking. Wow, impresionante! Impressive!
