Sweet and Spicy

Well Monday is just about done like dinner, so I thought I'd share mine. Well, part of it anyway- and the groovy spices I found at Winner's.

I don't always buy food items at Winner's (due to possible freshness questions, but these were dated and well sealed.) I've been looking for fire roasted tomatoes for awhile, so this shaker of dried ones is part of the way there.

I thought the Jamie Oliver spices looked good (plus cute in their little containers). LOL not sure how to use Bird's Eye chilis (any tips?) but they-again- look adorable. Is Janet a shopper or what? Anyway, I've come across a number of recipes lately calling for whole herbs crushed, so this JO stash is good for attempting that.

Finally, for the sweet, I had a sweet and sweaty step class today at lunch with lots of super teens (and one sweet teacher friend) and I tried a new sweet potato recipe. The recipe using up my last 4 organic sweet potatoes (I halved the recipe) was Cooking Light's Brown Sugar Glazed Sweet Potato Wedges. Delicious! Crazily I'm the only one who <3 's sweet potatoes. More for me? ;)

I love Jamie Oliver! Be careful with the birdseye chilli's very very spicy i think! They are the hottest of thai chillies.
