Got these adorable little barrels in that I thought would be perfect for a little body wash set - listed only on my website since I can't sell these on Etsy.

Sweet Potato Fries - YUM!

Tonight was the third time I made these and I LOVE them! So much more yummy and I would think (and hope!) - better for you.

I take one large sweet potato (for just me) - wash it off - hardest part is cutting it up. I like smaller fry like shapes - but you could do larger wedges. Dump that in a gallon zip lock and add a few tablespoons EVOO and shake till all the pieces are coated. Dump them out and spread on a cookie sheet (I like to use tin foil on the cookie sheet) and sprinkle with either a grill seasoning or I use an all purpose seasoning. Bake at 425 degrees 20 - 25 minutes - depending on how thick you cut and how crispy you want them.

Let cool a little - and oh my! Delicious! I'll have to take a pic next time I make them - which could be very soon!

Inauguration Time!

My daughter is - as I type this - on her way to Washington DC. My sister will be at a rally in Cambridge, MD. Tomorrow will truly be an exciting day for this country.

There is just something about this upcoming President that just speaks HOPE to this country. I was amazed on election night and right after - how many people I heard from - from so many other countries - among them Australia and Germany - who were so cognizant of our politics, and were also truly excited about the results.

I know I will be glued to the set. While none of the serious issues we face as a country will be solved overnight, I am truly optimistic that Barack Obama is truly the best man for the job. A wonderful historic day and truly exciting!

Getting ready for Valentine's Day!

Got a few new things for the special romantic evening!

Massage oil - my clear unscented lightweight massage oil is a blend of Sesame Oils, Rice Bran Oil, Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil. These highly processed and pharmaceutical grade oils are very light in weight and offer excellent glide and texture. This oil washes out of most linens easily without the aid of additives. I can add a touch of scent

Love Dust - Edible flavored honey powder mixed with flavor powder - makes a delightful fun treat for men OR women. And I found the cutest little red mini feather "duster" to go along with it.

And of course a red candle!
