We’re finally settled into our new apartment. Aside from some curtains on order and reupholstering our “new” kitchen chairs, which were rescued from Irene flooding, we pretty much have everything the way we want it. I guess moving is always a big ordeal. We had to get new curtains for our 100 inch tall windows. I’m excited about all of the light but not about the cost of really, really long curtains. I love our new kitchen, it was redone right before we moved in.
We got our grill a cover so now we can keep it outside like a “real” grill. We’ve been grilling up a storm and eating out on our porch, which came with a patio table and chairs. I planted 6 different kinds of hot peppers, sweet basil, chives and scallions in window boxes on our porch and got us a tomato plant. I can’t wait until everything starts growing.
We joined the co-op and the library. At the co-op you can grind your own peanut butter… I might be obsessed.
We’ve also been running along the bike path along the lake. We’ve done 4 miles every day since we moved in… not too shabby. Now all I need to do is get a job.
This recipe is insanely easy and delicious
Grilled Sweet Potato Fries
1 sweet potato, washed, sliced into 1/4″ rounds
1 tablespoon of olive oil
cinnamon, few dashed
dash of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of maple syrup, optional
Slice up the potato and put the rounds in a gallon size zip top bag with the remaining ingredients. Shake to coat. Place on grill over medium heat. Grill about 5-8 minutes on each side, until crispy and golden. Or if you’re like me, grill them til they get a little char.
