About Me/Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Some days there is no time for words, which is why there are pictures....

I miss adventures like these....

And I miss views like these.....

This is my best friend Wifey.

That's a sea urchin, in my favorite place in the world, Pantelleria.

This is my little brother Milo, he's my favorite little brother.

Even when there is little time for words, there is always time for sweet potatoes seasoned with cumin and chili flakes....

I have made sweet potatoes fries at home several times. Always delicious, never crispy enough,. I will try parchment next time!

Great post! I love the picture of Vernazza - I have stayed in Manarola a few times (in an apartment) and I love the whole area of Liguria (& CT of course). Your brother is such a handsome boy! Sweet potato fries are one of my favorites as well!
