This spring break has been a busy one, at least for the kids.

They have been on the go pretty much the entire 10 days, and this momma is ready for a return to normal schedule. One where we are not up until 2:30 am, and sleeping entirely too late.

I love to sleep in, but teens take it to a whole new level. When you first eat breakfast at noon, lunch tends to get skipped,or at least reduced to a snack sometime before dinner.

This week we have been LOVING these spicy sweet potato fries with avocado cream.

The sweet potatoes are cut into thick wedges to allow for a longer baking time – this makes them extra sweet. They are then  tossed with a little olive oil, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper – making them the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

Totally delicious,

but when you pair the fries with avocado cream

you have a snack/lunch that is in a word
