I have been trying to re-vamp my lunch time menu. Like I told you a few posts back, I am trying to get away from the grocery and trying to get my family back in the habit of eating things that are healthy and delicious.
For an example…
Today we are having Baked Chicken, Side Salad and Sweet Potato Fries!
Doesn’t that sound delicious?
I saw this picture on Pinterest and it sparked me to use my sweet potatoes as fries instead of baking them.
Here’s what I did.
I browned a little butter in my cast iron skillet. I cut up my sweet potatoes and gave them a quick fry in my browned butter. After a few minutes I gave them a little sprinkle of salt, sugar and cinnamon.
I turned down the heat and placed a cover over the skillet so that the potatoes would soften a bit.
The kids ate theirs plain with no dipping sauce.
I used a spicy ranch for mine!
It’s a great alternative to some of the quick meals we have been having and it is something that won’t weigh us down for our afternoon lessons.
What’s your favorite quick and healthy lunch?
