How I wish I could get my hungry little hands on some purple sweet potato. Emmm...when I was little, mom used to just poke a couple of holes in them with a fork and microwave them then in it goes into my belly! They were so delicious. Much sweeter and more intense in flavor than the usual sweet potato. I try and justify that if you bake a potato, it is healthier and sometimes a gal just NEEDS her fries. These are delicious baked in olive oil, curry powder and garlic powder. Toss it together and bake at 400 degrees F. Emmm yum yum!
Brandon has been doing night flights so basically when I get off work, he leaves for base to fly and I am stuck at home by myself. I have seen him for a total of hmm...15 minutes in the last 48 hours. It's tough and it's going to be tougher tomorrow when I get out of school at 1pm and have the rest of the ENTIRE day by myself. Usually, that would be something I look forward to if Brandon were home. So I have come up with an idea. I was watching the movie "The Jane Austin Book Club," last night and it really made me want to dive right into one of her books. So my plan for 'Val's day to herself,' is to go buy a jane austin book I haven't read before and have a book club of my own.
Oh! I unboxed my yoga dvd today after work cause I figured that it would help me with my insanely tense muscles and sore back and neck. Boy did it do wonders. I felt SO loose afterward, of course I am just a tense person and I can already feel the tension coming back. I totally need a professional massage - perhaps for my birthday??? hmmmmmm
