Things I learned today…  1) Working from home is amazing & relaxing.  2) Lunches while working from home are amazing.  3.) I am obsessed with snow.

So I finally broke for lunch and realized that since I was home I had the awesome benefit of a kitchen, oven, cutting board, fridge, etc.  I figured the best way to boost your immune system is to fill it with lots of healthy goodies so I got to work on making some fantastic sweet potato fries to go along with some raw carrots and a Dr. Praeger’s Cali Burger w/ melty cheddar cheese on top.  Plus some corn chips and BBQ cape cod potato chips for “dessert”.img_2273

img_2276img_2278I have to say, I am seriously addicted to all these orange variations of fries I’ve been having recently.  Sweet potato fries, butternut squash fries… I can’t get enough of ’em!!  I mean, just look at those babies…  I baked them at 425 for about 35 minutes with a light sprinkling of olive oil, salt and pepper.img_2272While I was eating I looked outside to see the most magical sight in the world… big snowflakes falling down!!  😀  I. Love. Snow.img_22692

Admittedly not the best picture, but that’s the best I could do without actually crawling out onto the fire escape.  It made me feel all warm and Christmasy inside.  Ok lovies, enjoy your afternoon and don’t forget to get working on some carroty creations!!

    I don’t like winter but that picture of the snow looks nice! I am glad you liked our latkes 😉
    By the way, I heart sweet potatoes – when I was on vacation in Israel they were sold for about $1.75/kg. Here they are sold for $4/kg
