Good evening, blog world!
I had a long day at work and didn’t get home until 9:15… and dinner was on the table!
Sweet white corn, baked falafel balls, and sweet potato fries. Good job, Loren!
I wasn’t too hungry because I had eaten 2 small lunches today… I went to a staff meeting around 1, and they had a long meat sub sandwich. I had a small slice of the sub during the meeting just to hold me over. I was still hungry, but knew I had my healthy salad in the fridge, so I restrained myself and didn’t get anymore. Then, for snack around 4, I had the salad- which was perfect. It held me over til 9!
Dinner was just what I wanted- not too much, but enough to leave me satisfied and happy. Loren makes really yummy sweet potato fries (I taught him everything he knows 🙂 ). They are spiced with cayenne, paprika, salt, pepper, and a little bit of olive oil and bake at 380 degrees for 30 minutes.
The secret to these babies is to cut them very thinly, so that they get nice and crispy! And to turn them every 10 minutes or so while they are in the oven…
The falafel balls were also excellent- from a spicy mix we bought at Damascus Bakery in our hood.
Now I’m on clean up duty! My plan for tonight is to do a little more work, a little more relaxing, and hit the hay early. I’m still feeling better, but I know I need to keep getting lots of sleep!
