|I love this picture... even though he's just planning for a climb and not actually climbing anything!|
I made...Sweet Potato Enchiladas... totally YUM. Even if you don't like sweet potatoes, you would like this. The seasonings in the sweet potatoes make it seem like a nice creamy filling... if you didn't know better, you would never guess!

I'm sure by now, my son especially, was really hoping dad would come home soon, but I was having too much fun to quit. And the people at work would watch me get out my lunches everyday and wonder where I found out about such things. (Not a secret, I have internet access and know how to use a search engine!) I felt like a weird sideshow. Maybe they were just jealous because they had their bland boxes of Lean Cuisine waiting for them? I know I would have been!
Making all of these recipes made me want to eat better each time I made something. I was very conscious about what I was putting in my body and felt it was showing in my running. I felt physically much better by the end of the week... and my running was showing. Each morning I was feeling like I could push a little more.
Yes, I am back to cooking things with meat. Not a bad thing. I didn't miss meat, but I felt like I found out about a whole food niche out there that needed to be discovered by me. I know I'll be trying to work it a little more into our normal food rotations. I'm just not thinking that hubby will be thrilled to sit down to enchiladas when he finds them filled with sweet potatoes!
