Morning y’all! How’s your weekend going? Mine’s been great, but I have T-minus 10 minutes to finish getting dressed and blog…yikes! I’m loving our produce bowl right now, especially in the natural light:
It’s 4 inches of baguette cut in half and turned inside out for “grilling.” I spread 1 tsp store-bought pesto on the crusts, then a sprinkling of mozzarella, then piled it high with cauliflower that I roasted a couple days ago. Onto a medium heat skillet and weighted it down with a full tea pot 🙂 Voila! ‘Twas delicious 🙂
After getting my hair done (sorry, no pictures of it! but it turned out wonderful!) I head to the store to get some non-meat food for dinner at Jason & Stephanie’s. You’ll never guess what I found! SWEET POTATOES!!! I decided to cook them the way Kath did the other night…
Check out the differences between the two here. A yam is much more fibrous in texture, but a sweet potato tastes like a yam, but feels like a potato. YUM! Below is a yam on the left and a sweet potato on the right:
And then the potatoes were ready! I was so excited and they did NOT disappoint! Super creamy on the inside and crisp on the outside…sooooo good! I would highly recommend the cooking method for really any potato!
Then Steph pulled out the big guns…a small Haagen Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream! I pretty much ate all of mine, and only shared a couple of bites with Nate. Later I looked at the nutrition info on the back…YIKES…but I figured I didn’t really eat a whole lot that day and desserts are allowed. Nothing is off limits! I just enjoyed it and figured I’ll compensate for that on Sunday.
I keep hearing about how it’s SOOOOOOOO good, so I figured I’ll try it. Honestly, I prefer regular peanut butter more in my oats, but the flavor of the Justin’s was good! The oats were yummy, although I’ll admit I put a little too much jam in them. Live and learn, right?
So, Tasha the Clean Eating Mama was so lovely and gave me the Sunshine Award on her blog yesterday!
