TGIF! And a snow-free Friday here! This morning was crazy with rain and 40-mile wind gusts, but that cleared up by the afternoon and never turned into snow as predicted. I’m a little bummed, seeing snow here would have been pretty wild, but oh well. Since it’s still freezing cold here, Smokey parked herself in front of her favorite show – the fireplace. She’ll sit there for most of the night just watching the flames completely mesmerized – I wish I was so easily entertained.
You’re disturbing my show!
Maybe after a few more glasses of this, I will be. Red wine with frozen grapes in it – perfect way to end a busy week.
We thought about going out, but it’s freezing and the couch and fireplace just seemed to inviting. So a relaxed dinner at home it was. I decided on a splurge food – sweet potato fries. I chopped one huge sweet potato into fries, tossed with a little coconut oil and salt. Then baked at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
One sweet potato makes a lot of fries!
To create a dip for the fries, I mixed a little Veganaise and honey mustard and it was fabulous. I served the fries with a thrown-together salad of zucchini ribbons, romaine lettuce and red cabbage dressed with a honey mustard miso dressing and topped with hemp seeds.
A laid-back and simple dinner, perfect since we’re so relaxed this evening watching TV and sipping wine. Pretty lame on a Friday night, we’ll make up for it tomorrow. :-)
