For lunch today I baked a bunch of sweet potato fries, and served that with hummus as a dipping sauce and a big side salad.

To make the fries:
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Chop your sweet potatoes length-wise into even-sized wedges. I like to cut mine quite thick, because they do shrink once baked. Spread the fries on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil. Drizzle some olive oil and season with dried Italian herbs, paprika, salt and a touch of cinnamon. Give the fries a good toss to coat everything evenly, then place it in the oven. After 15-20 mins, take them out, flip them over and put it back in for another 5-10 mins. The cooking time really depends on your oven strength/heat, so do keep an eye on the fries so they cook evenly and don’t burn.

Every week I meal plan the dinners a that I am going to make for each day, and this week not a single one went according to plan…

Tonight I had planned on making my favorite dinner: butternut squash with ground turkey and rice but my mom thought the ground turkey was regular chop meat and made a meatloaf for my grandmother not knowing. Needless to say I was bummed that my precious ground turkey was used for something as horrendous as a meat loaf. Yuck!

So tonight’s dinner was a mishmosh of whatever we had in the house: pasta, asparagus, onion, tomatoes, and sweet potato. It was still pretty good though.
