Okay, the 'shine' of being back to work has worn off... today was definitely a work day. But that's all good. That's how it goes, right? I got in a great workout though, despite going in thinking I was too tired. Those are the best ones! I love the little zip of energy I get from a good workout.
Today's recipe is a healthier version of french fries... it's another side dish, because I wanted something simple. Paired with a nice sirloin steak from my parent's farm, and some fresh steamed vegetables, it was a great supper. Really simple to make. The longest part was waiting on the oven -- which provided the right amount of time to cook my steak. Yum!
