Memorial Day Eats | Sweet Potato Fries

Memorial Day Eats | Sweet Potato Fries

Can you believe it’s almost Memorial Day?! Memorial Day seems so exciting for me this year because it’s the first time I get a paid holiday since starting my full-time job. 

Today I’m sharing with you a quick and easy recipe for sweet potato fries. They’re super yummy, and they’re guilt free too! 

Memorial Day Eats | Sweet Potato Fries

All it takes is three simple ingredients: sweet potatoes (I used five), salt (I used himalyan pink salt but if you don’t have any on hand, table salt will do), and olive oil.

For this recipe I used Esplendido Douro’s extra virgin olive oil. I had the olive oil sent to me, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting much. I’m a pretty picky (and simple) eater, so I figured that it would taste the same as any other olive oil that I’ve used in the past. But no. I was wrong. It is hands down the best olive oil I have ever used, and a new favorite of mine! It is super light and flavorful, and tastes incredibly pure. I use olive oil with all of my veggies, so I’m so glad to have found this!

This may be super dorky of me, but I was seriously ecstatic about the bottle opening. I’m always too lazy to use a measuring spoon, and you’d think I’d have learned my lesson by now, but every single time I end up over-pouring whatever I’m measuring out. Does anyone else do this?!

Well, this bottle opening is perfect and really helps to control the amount that you are pouring out. Praying that I find a bottle of vanilla extract that has the same opening.

Bye, bye Washington.

We stayed at the Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas and it was beautiful! I’ve never traveled in off-season before, and it was the best thing! The pool was never crowded and you could always find a shaded beach chair.

This was such a beautiful read. I talk about it on my instagram here

We took a catamaran to Isla Mujeres. To be honest, it wasn’t my favorite. Some of the crew were rude and they were really disrespectful to the environment. They fed and touched the fish when snorkeling, and at one point we saw a nurse shark that had been caught and all of it’s teeth had been ripped out. It was super disappointing to see, but it was also a reminder that unfortunately not all places treat animals or the environment the same way we do (which isn’t to say that we’re perfect, either).  It’s funny, whenever I travel I am absolutely shocked when I can’t find a recycling bin. PNW girl here, haha.

For our layover we landed in Utah, and it was one of the most beautiful sunsets. It was a nice welcome home.
