hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Lunch

You may remember the sweet potato nachos.  I've written about them here, here, and here. But I've never made them for anyone else--I've just greedily eaten them all by myself.

That is, until today.

Sarah and I wanted to get together for lunch today, and since we're both *saving money* (i.e., overspent our cash for the week), I decided to make sweet potato nachos because I had all the ingredients! And, in fact, I had two small sweet potatoes and I was wondering what to do with them--one wouldn't be enough for the recipe, but two would be too much for me to eat by myself. Such a dilemma.

Thankfully, I've had several runs at the sweet potato nachos. I now know the ingredients without having to check my iPhone every 30 seconds, I have learned not to pre-heat my oven right away because I move at a glacial pace, and I did not slice my finger with a cheese grater! This is the epitome of human progress.

Long story short, Sarah loved the nachos! She said they were "delicious, simple, and healthy--that never happens." While I wouldn't ever market myself as a lunch/dinner host, it is nice to feed my friends, especially those (like Sarah) who have so graciously provided meals for me on many an occasion.
