Rules Of Engagement

The first rule when using a mandolin is USE THE FINGER GUARD!

I am so excited to have Mike home. I can cook for someone who loves to eat. I love with food. I used to laugh at Sofia and tease that food is her love language. If you feed her, you will get a hug and a few I Love You's. Now, my motto has become, "Come in, sit down and be loved" I love to feed my friends and family. I hope they love to eat as much as I love to feed!

Back to the rules...practice probably makes perfect. Had I used this thing more than once I may have remembered how important the finger guard really is! It is okay if you have to throw out part of the veggie to save your fingertips. Should you choose a life of crime, fingerprint-less fingers would come in handy.

Sweet potato "coins" are on the menu for lunch, along with spinach-feta turkey burgers wrapped in green leaf lettuce and steamed broccoli with butter salt and pepper(our favorite way).

Sweet Potato "Coins"

2 sweet potatoes, sliced

Slice, marinade and bake! 400 degree oven for at least 25 minutes, don't be affraid to let them get good and brown!

Spinach-Feta Turkey Burgers
