Having single friends means lots more girl time lately. These, the girls in the onsies having fun, are my friends. I love a day like yesterday. A simple day with us chilling, watching basketball (we are Hoosiers after all), and then dancing and singing around the house as they clean and I cook. Pretty much a great example of why I value those small moments in life. Because truly life is spent mostly in these moments, rather than the big, grand gestures we plan and look forward to. These carefree moments. Just three girls being ourselves, nothing fancy. No makeup. No extravagent clothes. Just us. Want to fire up the grill? Yes. Laid back and easy. We compile an amazing meal, so we can sit around the table together and eat. These moments, these food moments, cooking for people I love bring joy into my life. And oh how good the food tastes on our first grilling session of 2014! Plus I’ve been seeing avocado fries all over my networking sites lately and I had to give them a try.

IMG_7209Let’s Make it Happen: I started with the sweet potatoes. Slice them as thinly as you can, while keeping all your fingers. Toss with a little bacon fat, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and sea salt. Bake @ 400 for 45 minutes. Work on your Bacon Avocado Fries <———–by clicking this link. Season hamburger. I used blackening seasoning and sea salt. Brush a little melted coconut oil on the portabellas- just a little bit. Season with lemon pepper. Grill burgers to your preferred doneness. Toss the portabellas on towards the end they. Don’t they need very long. Layer your burgers: bella, burger, lettuce, red onion, bacon, tomato, and bella. Put it on a plate, gather round the table, and go!!!
