    Pink Salmon Salad w/ the following items added for flavor:
    Romaine Lettuce/Spinach leaves
    Carrots
    Olives
    White onion
    Orange Bell pepper
    Sea Salt/Black Pepper
    Cilantro
    Almonds
    Cranberries
    Fat Free cheese
    Olives
    Broccoli
    Olive Oil
    Red Wine Mist (plenty of flavors to choose from) :D

    So show me your lunch (or breakfast, or dinner, or other snacks) you all are eating :)

    I'm sure dluc cut them himself, but if you're not talented, get something like this. You can find ones that cut in different thickness.

    I make mine by adding the sweet potatoes, olive oil and some kind of spicy/hot seasoning into a bag. Shake it until all potatoes are well covered with the spices and then put it in the oven until crispy. Make sure to turn the fries with a spatula at least once. It will look pretty much like Abby's potatoes. :drool:

    I have better luck by putting them in the oven :nod:

    edit: I really shouldn't have written 'look' instead of 'luck' there.

    :nod: Wouldn't say I'm talented though. I still have the occasional disaster where I cut something awkwardly and end up taking off a piece of my finger.

    Also, I thought I'd just mention that I have noticed that they sell sweet potato fries in a huge bag at Costco. I've never purchased them, but they're already cut up nicely and I think they're seasoned (I could be wrong on this that).

    Well, made my own this evening. I cut up one large sweet potato and basted the fries w/ olive oil. Coated them in cinamon and splenda. AWESOME!

    (Sorry, the wife and I ate them before I could snap pics) :lol:

    Do you guys think that we could pre cut a bunch of sweet potato fries and put them in a big baggy and put them in the freezer? So like...it's always there if we need to fix them up fast? Or do they have a really horrible shelf life or something?

    I make sweat potato chips. Basically the same thing, but cut thin. I just spray some Pam on both sides and season, flipping about half way through cooking. I like them crispier than fries generally turn out for me.

    I've done everything from cinnamon/splenda to chipotle powder/salt with good results.

    the salad is just lettuce, tomatoes, jumbo raisins, low fat cheddar, cottage cheese

    then the stir fry is chicken, snap peas, carrots, pineapple mixed up with an asian bbq sauce

    i'm pretty simple when it comes to cooking :)
