No More Wimpy Yam Fries or I Yam What I Yam

I love the idea of Yam/Sweet Potato Fries.  I just don’t like many of the recipes that I have found.  Reason:  Wimpiness.

I can’t think of any good reason anything or anybody should be wimpy.

Wimpy is not a good quality and is definitely not a good quality when it comes to food.  Name me one food that is described as wimpy and is something you would cook?  I can’t think of any.

A Simple Saturday Night Meal or Barbecue Chicken and Fried Baby Artichokes

Barbecue Chicken, roasted asparagus, fried baby artichokes with Greek Yogurt dip and red grapes

It had been a long day of work-outside-in-the-yard for Y!C! on Saturday. We ordered some useful-yet-decorative cement blocks for the yard, so Y!C! and my youngest son hauled those around to make our yard look a bit more tidy.

Memorial Day Hamburger Grill or Thank you for the ultimate Gift…my freedom

Freshly ground hamburger, grilled, with Provolone, fresh tomato and lettuce with a Ciabatta Bun. Grilled Corn with Lime Compound butter. O’Rings with spicy dipping sauce.

Memorial Day!  A day to remember and thank God for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect my freedom.  A day to celebrate. My dad and my grandfathers and my husband’s father all served in the armed services.  Thankfully, none of them gave their lives, although my grandfather’s ship was hit by a Kamikaze plane and many men died.  They served and were proud of their service.  They have all passed away now and I remember them and their bravery on this day.

Thank you for your service and my freedom
