This is my all time favorite snack these days and you can make it in a snap. I use the Magic Bullet to mix up the sauce but you can use a blender or food processor… but really the Magic Bullet
rocks for just about everything, especially smoothies.
For the fries you can make your own or you can cheat and buy them in the frozen food section in your grocery store that’s up to you.
Careful… these are ADDICTING
Sweet Potato Fries
2 sweet potatoes peeled
Sea Salt (to taste)
Slice into thin strips or steak fries (whichever you like best)
Spray the bottom of a cookie sheet with coconut oil or olive oil
Put fries on cookie sheet and lightly coat with spray oil
Lightly sprinkle cumin and sea salt over fries
Bake in the oven at 425 for 35 minutes or until done
1 Cup of Mayo (sour cream or plain Greek Yogurt works as well)
2 Chipotle Peppers in adobo sauce (from a can in the Mexican food aisle)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup cilantro
Dump it all in a food processor or the Magic Bullet and blend.
Something fell from the sky last week near Greenville, South Carolina but what? Around 2am there was an explosion and shaking as something crashed to the earth. The falling object was described as immensely bright as it streaked across the sky. Security cameras and sky cameras caught the image as the object came down. Astronomy type folks are calling it a bolide which is basically a meteor that comes crashing from space, breaks apart and crashes into earth. So far no one has found the crash site of the UFO or the bolide… whatever you choose to call the thing. I can’t imagine what it would be like to see something like that and then the explosion… no matter what it is it would probably have scared the hell out of me!
UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record
The Department of Corrections probably wishes they had double checked the police cruiser decals before they released them to be put onto 30 cop cars in Montpelier, VT. Looks like the women inmates in charge decided it would be fun to sneak in the image of a pig onto the decal and they got away with doing just that. If you look closely at the image you can see a pig appears in the spots on the cow. One officer, who has an eye for detail, noticed the pig when he was washing his car. I am kind of amazed only 1/30 noticed… OK I’m not. No word on if the decal is going to be left on the cruisers or taken off.
I was flitting around the news pages today as I typically do when I came across a picture of this puppy. I know I’m not the only one with a dirty mind if it made a popular news site. I can hear men now “Want to pet my puppy?”
Puppies For Dummies
Maybe this 18 year old woman was trying to save a horse and riding a cowboy before she got busted standing outside naked wearing only cowboy boots in Corpus Christi, Texas. There is no word why Taylor Burnham was wearing only her sh*tkickers and standing outside but they do know that when she saw police she hopped into her car and gave them a chase. I would have said high speed but it seems as if they only went up to 30mph and only for a little over a mile before they finally got her pulled over. She was charged with evading arrest and a DUI. Save A Horse [Ride A Cowboy]
This is one of the stories that make you want to cross your legs forever, triple up on the birth control and maybe cry a little. Baby Chun Chun, who supposedly shot out in just 20 minutes of labor, was born weighing 15.52 pounds. That’s THREE bags of potatoes! Scary thing is that’s not even the heftiest baby on record. That title belongs to a baby born at 23.7 pounds in 1879 in Ohio. One might think that the mother had gestational diabetes or something to cause such a large baby but according to reports the mother was healthy and both parents are average. Then again this is China and we know how well they like to tell the truth. I remember a Chinese athlete at the summer Olympics that ended up being stripped of her medal because they lied about her age. Either way that is one giant baby and I’m glad it didn’t pass through my loins!
Guinness World Records 2012
Yea, yea don’t bother telling me it’s a commercial holiday because I don’t care. I made my card to Mr. RealiT and we aren’t buying gifts so don’t waste your breath. I don’t ask for jewels, candy, flowers or any of that what I want is a clean house, a nap and maybe a card and some lunch. This year I decided to put a poem on my card and although I am no poet I really am proud of myself (patting self on back). I thought I would share it with all of you.
A song you will find on my mp3 player: My Funny Valentine (2006 Digital Remaster)
Did you know your snoring could wake up the dead?
Even when you’re not around I hear it in my head.
A good night’s sleep is no longer mine
A lifetime of yawning I have been assigned.
When you go to the bathroom, pleas turn on a fan
I am trying to figure out how that smell comes from a man
How can you produce something with that big a stink
It makes my eyes water, my nose run and I blink.
Sometimes you do some things that really make me mad,
Living a day without you would truly make me sad
Even when we don’t agree, know I love you still
If you win the lottery make sure I’m in your will!
Can you tell I’m so not the sappy type? I love my husband and he knows it and I try to show him every day not just one day out of the year. I hope he appreciates the poem because he’s not getting a gift either!
