Dream it. Do it.

It starts with a dream, and ends in a memory.

Cravings, cravings. March 8, 2011

This past week I had a craving for . . . French fries. At every meal I imagined myself eating hot, crunchy sticks of potato. Stuck with a nagging conscience saying, “Eat healthy,” . . . my dreams of French fries were destroyed. That is until I discovered an amazing recipe for Baked Pommes Frites from Smitten Kitchen.


After making these crunchy morsels of bliss, I am proud to say that my craving was satisfied. The frites were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Perfect. The greatest thing about them was that I was able to control the oil content, and there was no need for deep frying. Awesome. (Sorry, my computer deleted my pictures of the frites).


To lighten up this meal, I added a nice salad. Use your favourite recipe, but make sure you have a light olive oil and vinegar or simple oil and lemon dressing. As a side the salad was accompanied by these delicious crescent sandwiches, which can be found at Pennies on a Platter. The asparagus was crisp and tender and added the perfect bite to the soft rolls. I substitued the ham for salami which added some great saltiness. Instead of dijon mustard I used a vegetable spread which tasted of charred roasted red peppers. I also opted for reduced fat crescent rolls. You should definitely give these a try.


Always remember, giving in to cravings is fine. Eat in moderation and listen to your body. Cooking your favourite foods also allows you to be in control of what you put into it. Enjoy.
