I guess you have figuerd out by now that I love chocolate, cool whip, and pumpkin. Now, we’ll get to add another favorite to my list of foods I love… sweet potatoes!

Not only are they good for you, but they are dirt cheap this week at my local grocery store, which is another thing I love about them. So, be prepared for lots of sweet-potato recipes.

Also, I found an awesome new menu planning website called Onceamonthmom.com.

They have meals you cook in bulk, then separate into individual portions, freeze them, and you can use them all month! Cook once– eat all month long. You’ve got to love that!

I’ll mark any meals I’m trying from their site with an asterisk (*). They have a diet menu that has nutritional info and Weight Watchers points, which is always very helpful!

Have a great week!

  • 1 lb chicken breast cut into cubes
  • 1 lb bag frozen stir fry vegtables
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lite soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup terriyaki sauce

Directions: Heat a frying pan use the olive oil to coat the pan. Toss the cubed chicken with the corn starch. Put the chicken in the heated pan. Cook for 5 minutes over medium heat. Stir chicken frequently. Add the soy sauce and terriyaki sauce and vegtables and cook for 10 minutes covered over medium heat. Make sure the chicken has cooked all the way and the vegtables are hot. Serve over brown rice.

      Sweet potatoes are a really great healthy option. I love those too.

        I agree! I love the fact they have so much flavor compared to white potatoes. Thanks!
