As I mentioned earlier, I’m making an effort to eat better. I’ve never been not an adventurous eater, but I’m certainly not adventurous for myself. You can learn more about my effort here. You can follow along on my Foodstagram @foodemilieeats and by looking at my hashtag #foodemilieeats which preceeds the account.
I don’t normally have bacon at home, but in Georgia, where I’m visiting my boyfriend, the four still growing boys going through bacon like crazy. I decided to have bacon with my breakfast one morning and made it into a smiley face. Yes, I’m a child.
Casey had a morning the other day where he didn’t have PT, so when we woke up he asked for Cinnamon Buns, something I’d normally never even think about making for something other than a lazy Sunday morning. Believe it or not, but I don’t think I’ve ever made these before myself. I’m scared of the can popping enough that I don’t buy these sorts of things.
Perhaps most in-line with what I’m trying to do with this effort is that last picture- I made homemade mashed sweet potatoes. I knew I was leaving for Atlanta, but still had three sweet potatoes that wouldn’t survive the 18 days I was going to be gone. I boiled them, added a tablespoon of butter, and put it all in my roommates Ninja Food Processor. Ta-Da! It was delicious. I had some that night and then freezed the rest, which will be perfect for when I get home!
That’s been my aventures in food lately. Any new recipes you’ve tried lately?
