Since I've been back in BC I've been having a pretty much non-stop love affair with my beloved Silver Hills breads...but this week I'm switching it up for toasted sandwich thins. There's just something about the chew factor on these that I love.
While perusing my multiple coffee mugs the other day I realized that I hadn't seen my Calgary Starbucks mug since I arrived back from my road trip . A little digging through a box led me to this beauty still all wrapped up!
Lunch was inspired by the cute dishes Cat brought me as a housewarming prezzie. She said she thought of my little lunchtime snack plates when she happened upon these while shopping one day. :)
BC cherries. Oh how I love thee.
After whining about my lack of dinner inspiration the other day I decided just to take a few cues from myself and dug through my own recipes. A recent fave before I left Halifax was the super easy and deeeelish Coconut Shrimp .
Served with Coconut Mashed Sweet Potato.
1 sweet potato (or yam), peeled, cubed and steamed.
1 tsp butter
1 tsp coconut oil
pinch of dark brown sugar
s&p, cinnamon, and flaked coconut for garnish
Steam sweet potato until easily pierced with a fork. Move to bowl or pot and add butter and coconut oil. Mash with fork (or masher) until desired consistency (I don't mind mine a little lumpy). Add cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt & pepper to taste.
Easy peasy recipe.
Plate and sprinkle with coconut.
First Friday night in a while that I just stayed in all by my lonesome. Single gal chillin' on the couch with a girlie movie and a girlie snack. :)
There's a reason I don't buy HD. This container is already gone!
