Good afternoon! Although it completely still feels like morning to me.
This morning, I took my hubby to work so I could use the car today. I need to run a few errands and it's not the easiest thing in the world to find someone to cart me around (or walk).
I was a bad blogger this morning. I forgot to take a picture of my breakfast!!! It was an ezekiel muffin with crunch pb. You've seen it a million times on my blog, but if you missed it. It looks like this or this or this. :D
After breakfast, I took the hubs to work, which is an hour round trip (ugh). After, I came home to work my butt off. Here's a pic of my dining room/office. Just for kicks.
Around 10:30, I was hungry again. I had a hummus plate alongside a Starbucks tea that exploded in my microwave. Boo hiss...
My hummus plate included fresh parsley hummus from Vine Ripe, pretzels, and a pepperjack stick.
My lunch is going to be partly in this post and partly in tonight's post. If I have time to do 3 posts, I will, but it's looking doubtful. I was inspired by a fellow blogger to make baked yam fries. Unfortunately, I don't remember which blogger inspired me. :( I would totally have given you a shout out. My apologies.
Don't you love the fresh color of a yam? I bought a bag of 8 yams for 99 cents. Go me!
I tossed the yam tots with a drop of EVOO, some sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and smoky red pepper.
Then, I bake them for a long time at a really hot a$$ temperature.
This is what a hot a$$ temperature looks like.
No, but really... How long I bake them depends on how they look at 30 minutes. At 30 minutes, I flip them and then put them in for 15-20 minutes more. I like mine BROWN, almost black. Yum!
We had a leftover chicken patty last night, so I'm going to have a bunless burger alongside my sweet yam fries. Yay for yam fries!
What's your favorite starchy vegetable? I'd have to say yams/sweet potatoes are pretty high on my list.
One more day on the EMW Contest.
Oh, and Carrots and Cake is also doing a contest. A much cooler one actually. Check it out. :p
Also, a contest at Marlene on the Run. Awesome jewelry giveaway.
