  • Honey Bunches of Oats - Fruit blend. This was really good. It had my two favorite fruits, strawberries and blueberries :)

  • Lemon Lime soda

  • Chicken nuggets - baked not fried
  • Green beans

  • Water
  • The beans and nuggets were flavored with Mrs. Dash. We also had honey bar-b-q dipping sauce.

I received an email from my cousin Alan asking about the sweet potato fries and how to make them. I decided to go ahead and share that recipe here for anyone else who is interested.

Sweet Potato Fries
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • Slice sweet potato into french fry strips cutting lengthwise along potato. You can cut the sweet potato in half first if you wish to have shorter fries.
  • Place cut sweet potatoes onto a baking pan / cookie sheet.
  • Place into oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Flip potato fries over and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until as crisp you want them.
  • Season with your favorite seasoning. I recommend Mrs. Dash, chili powder, or any other low sodium seasoning.
  • Enjoy!
Let me know if you enjoy seeing recipes posted and I'll post some that Kristin has if she'll let me. She has an entire recipe book full of healthy to eat foods. She's an awesome daughter!

    1. So glad you got coffee back! Good sweet potato fries are so legit. What type of bbq sauce do you use? I like mixing a little franks hot sauce in with mine to add some kick.
