The real key points that I could have done a bit better on are as follows.
You only need a bit of chicken stock since you are going to cover your pan.
This isn't chili, you don't want to cook it forever.
First, cook an onion and a few cloves of garlic.
Finally, add the sweet potatoes cut into half moons, full moons, chunks, or whatever. You want to soften them, but not turn them into baby food.
I also got these sweet shoes in from a nice discount site that has some minimalist stuff like Vibrams and Vivobearfoot at a discount.
These are Vivobearfoot Ultras. The soles pop in and out, as well as the tongue attachment on top.
I ended up wearing them "sole-less" today like Crocs.
