While it’s becoming more and more of a challenge to find food in the house, today was a breeze.
My husband is gone fishing, so I don’t have to make a big meal tonight for him. He made himself a sandwich with what was left of some ham, cheese and two hamburger buns. I added the last of the oranges, so he was happy.
But what about me?
I have to admit, I went shopping and out to lunch with my lovely daughter, so I wasn’t all that hungry for dinner. Later in the evening I was craving a snack, and having used up my calories for the day (and then some), I decided to make some healthy sweet potato fries.
If you’ve never made sweet potato fries before, you really should try them. They have a different texture than the fries you are used to eating. Creamy, sweet and colorful. I find that even people who don’t care for sweet potatoes will eat them in this form.
Well, I’d better go. I can hear my husband grumbling trying to find something to eat for breakfast. I’m afraid a trip to the store will be in order tomorrow. Still 12 days without going to the store for anything but milk, coffee, cat food and wine is a pretty darn good stretch!
