Happy Thursday!  I love Thursdays because there’s so much anticipation for the upcoming weekend 🙂

As I mentioned before, the Mr. and I are MOVING…which means we must sell our house (yikes!).  Our house doesn’t need any major projects before it’s ready to sell, but it needs cleaned and de-cluttered.  We started with the laundry room…the Mr. put up some extra shelving and tonight I cleaned and organized.  My goal was to make it look like a page out of Real Simple magazine.

How’d I do??

It’s hard to get a pic because the room is really narrow.  The room doubles as a mud room and is the entrance to the house from the garage…also right next to the kitchen so it needs to look functional.  Another angle:

Next up, something else simple for my FIRST Blogger Secret Ingredient submittal.

I’m really not super creative in the kitchen, but I do love sweet potatoes, so here’s my creation:

Sweet Potato Nachos

Here’s what I did:

  • sliced a sweet potato into “chips”
  • sprayed chips with Olive Oil cooking spray and sprinkled with salt, pepper, and cayenne
  • baked at 450 for about 15 minutes
  • flipped and baked for another 10ish minutes
  • topped each chip with a small scoop of vegetarian refried black beans and a few sprinkles of shredded cheese
  • put the chips back in the oven for about 3 minutes- until cheese got melty
  • topped each with some chipotle salsa

YUM!  I don’t if this really counts as a recipe, but this was delicious and really fun to eat 🙂

  3. Sweet potato, black beans and cheese is one of my new favorite combos. I think they were meant to be together. 🙂

    You’ve got the Real Simple thing down. 🙂 Good luck selling the house! I hope the market is good where you live!
