Sweet Potato Fries

Periodically I run into a new food item that absolutely makes me giddy! Sweet potato fries are one my most recent finds. I just LOVE them! What makes this incredible is that I don't like sweet potatoes. My daughter Becca brought some home from a restaurant a couple months ago and insisted that I try them. OMG! The fact that they were quite tasty PLUS they are very good for you makes them over the top! Since that time I have bought a couple bags of the local store's brand of sweet potato fries and been quite happy with them.

I know I haven't mentioned this yet but my hubby and I come home for lunch everyday. Isn't that awesome? We work together so it is pretty easy to do. I have 30-35 minutes to throw our lunch together and because we like our biggest meal to be at noon it can sometimes be a challenge. I have a lot of shortcuts that I use that I will share over time. We try to eat as healthy as possible so what I share with you will be with that in mind. (And yes, convenience foods do play a role in my "quick meals".)

Today we had Angus burgers that I bought at Sam's Club (Quick'N Eat Fully Cooked Choice Angus Patties - 12 ct pkg). They are in the frozen foods section and cost $13.88 a package which is a little over a dollar a piece - which is a good price for a very filling sandwich. They heat up in the microwave in just a few minutes. And the nutrition isn't too bad. They are only 230 calories per burger and the protein is 26g. They taste like they just came off the grill. I teamed these up together with the sweet potato fries for our lunch today and walked away quite satisfied! No dessert needed!
