How was your Memorial Day Weekend? Did you get some BBQ in your belly? Chlorine in your hair? This weekend was, after all, the un-official kick-off to summer.
My weekend was simple. I got a few errands done, spent some time with some good people, ate some fantastic food, and whittled away at the apartment project. Oh and I almost forgot, I re-potted my plants too. My little seedlings are growing up so fast! I’m such an herb nerd.
In other news, I fell in love… with a sweet potato! Up until this point, I hadn’t really tried a sweet potato. Don’t judge me!! As a kid, my family would always serve a big bowl of canned yams and it left a weird impression on me. I never gave the sweet potato or yams the chance they deserve.
Lo-and-behold I bought one this weekend, baked it and I’m a fan! Deemed my new favorite snack. This recipe is so easy and tasty AND healthy! Whoa… my head is spinning. I’d better sit down and eat another sweet potato before I pass out.
