Hey all, hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Earlier in the week I finally got around to making sweet potato fries, and I am in love!!!
Yummy! I chopped up half of one (which was 100g) and coated it in a little melted coconut oil (from coconoil) and sprinkled with paprika.
I also made some sweet potato burgers. I did not have any kidney beans so this time I used lentils instead.
I microwaved 1 1/2 sweet potatoes, scraped out the filling and then whizzed it up with a tin of drained lentils, some chia seeds (1tbs) soaked in water (I hoped this would work like a gel and hold them together a bit), paprika, and sundried tomatoes.
(All ready to be whizzed up).
Then I shaped them into patties- this made 7.
I baked them for 25 mins, and then enjoyed a couple for dinner.
Soooooooooo good 🙂 I found that I liked the thinner fries the best, so I think next time I make them I would slice them super thin. The patties are very soft but the sweet potato flavour really came through. 🙂 The rest are in the freezer so I can go sweet potato crazy another day! Yay!
On Friday we went to see Steven Merchant who was really funny- but coming home I got twinges in my stomach again. Yup, another UTI. Grr. My doctors is closed all weekend but by googling things we found that I could ring an urgent care centre- a doctor rang back and then faxed a prescription to a local pharmacy- luckily. But our journey up to Sheffield was not the best. We got there fairly late, and so Andy went out to get us some dinner- a mozzerella, basil and tomato panini. I had not had cheese for 2 weeks and it tasted very good- I think not having it all the time is making me appreciate it more. Then it was off to Othello (with McNulty and Lester from the Wire as Othello and Iago). I studied the play in year 9 I think, but could not remember any part of it, and I was a little worried that I would not have a clue about what was happening. But I did (phew) and I really enjoyed it- very dramatic with some dry humour in there. Plus we shared a tub of mint choc chip ice cream in the interval which was yummy. We were planning on stopping somewhere on the drive home today, but I was not feeling great so we went out for breakfast and then headed home. I did watch some of the GNR on the TV this morning- well done to everyone who took part- it always looks like the most amazing atmosphere. And did anyone manage to high-five Mo? 🙂
