Happy New Year!!!!!! I had the most glorious two weeks & I hope all of you did, too. I spent mine with family, friends, dranks, and a whole hell of a lot of food.

Seriously, the moment the plane landed, I was off & running for some french fries. A bottomless pit, I tell you.

The only vegetable I had the whole trip were some fried brussels sprouts. Does that count?

Also, there was more red wine consumed on this trip than in most of 2014 & I am feeling like a CHAMP.

    Looks delicious! I have a bag of mini sweet potatoes that my wife bought me a month ago when I was all “I’m a lifter, I lift stuff and eat seitan and sweet potatoes!” and am just working through them all now – this recipe would help me use them up!
