Hey…Beth WA here…
Tonight I made these Sweet Potato Fries. I used only 1 tbsp of olive oil instead of 2, and only half a teaspoon of salt instead of two teaspoons.
They looked delicious, they smelled delicious, and I think they would be delicious if I hadn’t put so much cayenne pepper in the mix! ay-yay-yay. I had not used cayenne pepper that much in recipes, and so I thought I’d go with the whole half a teaspoon. For most people this might be fine, but for me, it is *too* much. My mouth is burning. So, it was hard for me to taste the other delicious seasonings-which are some of my favorites.
And I burnt the pork chops, so I had to do plan b on those, and made Market Day Naked Chicken Cordon Bleu. It’s actually not bad for a pre-made chicken, but it’s not what I had in mind. The savior to the meal was the salad which I chopped the tomato and cucumber really small (I love when restaurants do that) and added black beans and a pinch of cheddar cheese.
So, I ate the potatoes and the salad, and I am waiting for the chicken.
Does anybody have good sweet potato recipes? I love them so much and am always looking for good ways to use them.
Also, guess what I did yesterday, besides grade my face off? I got all of my magazine recipes in page protectors in one binder!! Now, I just have to organize them in categories. But, just having them not sticking out everywhere and easier to leaf through has relieved some of that stress.
I’ll leave you with a picture of the salad and the potatoes pre-oven…
