Sweet potatoes and "Russian" hotdogs

Tonight my dinner inspiration was a childhood meal of mashed potatoes and hotdogs. As I'm a bit older now, I decided to update it a bit.

Preheat the oven to 475 with a cookie sheet inside. Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1/4" thick slices. In a bowl, mix potatoes with garlic powder, cumin, Spanish smoked paprika and a bit of salt. Bake the potatoes in one layer on a cookie sheet for 7-10 minutes on each side.

When Anna and I were little, our parents cooked hotdogs by making an "x" cut on each end of a hotdog, and sauteing them in a pan in a bit of oil. This time I boiled them first, and then browned a bit in a pan. Oh the memories!
