These Baked Sweet Potato Fries are a fantastic compliment to just about any meal and an easy way to get kids to eat their veggies!
This week has been a bit of a whirlwind so far. My youngest started acting sick on Sunday and had a fever and sore throat. I scrambled to find a doctor’s office to take him to Monday morning since I suspected strep throat. No, I have no medical education however I seem to be right most of the time when it comes to my children. Anyway, it was a challenge to get him an appointment before late afternoon because of the amount of flu cases going around.
I finally had him seen and his test came back negative for strep and the flu (a relief it wasn’t the flu and not so relieved it wasn’t strep since we treat that with antibiotics). Fast forward to Tuesday night when I receive a phone call saying his lab test for strep came back positive! UGH At least they send in a lab test in addition to the rapid strep test done at the clinic, however, this meant I had to scramble for childcare Wednesday morning since it was one of the days I was scheduled to work. Thankfully my parents are willing to watch kiddos when they are sick with contagious illnesses (like all day Tuesday too), and are willing to come over on a few hours notice!
Well this has been my exciting week so far and all with the anticipation and anxiety of us leaving for skiing up north on Thursday morning! So obviously we are all trying to get healthy or stay healthy for our trip!
And now onto the recipe…Personally I’ve always been a fan of sweet potatoes, whether they are cooked whole or mashed. However, not everyone feels that way. And since sometimes I want and need variety from my typical roasted vegetable routine, I will quickly slice up sweet potatoes and make them into this easy recipe below since I know the entire family will devour them. It’s a win-win for the entire family.
