Who doesn't love a glowingly fresh morning face? Here is the routine I start my days off with:
These baked sweet potato fries have become a frequent favorite of mine. They are very easy to make, fun to eat, and they're good for you, too (fiberlicious) :o) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, cut up one or two sweet potatoes into wedges, toss in a bowl with olive oil/pepper/seasoned salt, spread on a baking dish & bake for 50 minutes. I like to dip mine in fry sauce (ketchup & miracle whip mixed together). Perfect!
I had a wonderful time in Seattle, but boy does it feel great to be home. As soon as I had unpacked, checked my mailbox, and opened up the windows to let the sunny breeze in, my body felt newly comfortable. One of my best friends, Laura, lives in Seattle and it was such a treat to see her four days in a row! We ate at her favorite restaurants, never skipped dessert, laughed, talked, and caught up. On Monday night, we went to the Steelhead Diner. I had fish & chips and we shared a brownie sundae. Laura holds that this is the best restaurant in Seattle!
My mind & body seek simplification, and my plate reflects this desire. It parallels the cleaning out, creating space, and giving away mindset I embody as I prepare to move into a new home. I think it's good to do this every once in a while... or maybe even continuously.
