I don’t think there will ever be a week without some “riveting” events taking place. Last weekend, our apartment almost caught on fire. Our microwave had been acting a bit funny and started giving off this “off” smell when in use. Of course, when I go to cook a potato in it Saturday night, smoke starts billowing out the side and the entire apartment reeked of an electrical fire. Public safety, housing, my apartment duty person…they all came to take away the scary hazardous microwave and replace it (with a smaller on that broke and then another new big one on Tuesday). Death by potato? Death by microwave? Yes…only me! I had to then open all the windows (which don’t have screens) and then the next day, while I’m photographing 3 new recipes, I find a bee flying around the living room.
The life! And that was all before Monday even started 😛 At least I can say TGIF! Who’s with me?
Monday: Purple Sweet Potato Tater Tots
Wednesday: Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets
Thursday: Freedom Feature: Nicole & Rob “88 Acres” (and a giveaway!)

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ This! It’s pronounced “Nam-A”, not “name”. It is delicious! Super slimy when you peel it, but then just chop it up, throw it in the oven at 425 and it tastes like a cross between yucca and potato! I love my weird tubers!
So tell me:
+ Any mishaps this week? I was also almost attacked by some demon squirrel while I was walking to class one morning…I think it may have been hurt, though…
+ Any new foods you’ve tried and loved recently?
