It is official! Yesterday I bought a yoga DVD and on Tuesday I made sweet potato fries. Yup…I repeat…it is official. My name is Lauren and I am a health junkie. I know I know. I’m breaking all kinds of rules here! I mean, surely it states somewhere in the Southern belle bylaws that we like our food battered, dipped, and deep fried! But here is my rationalization…you ready? I have hips. Full blown hips. I am a curvy gal. Now I know what you’re doing. Right now you are looking at my profile picture and thinking “this girl really is crazy.” I pinky promise I’m not. But back to the point.
So here is the deal: My friend, Matt, and his wife have one ridiculously awesome garden. They can things all summer long. I unfortunately am the proud owner of a garden where plants go to die. So one day Matt offers up an ungodly amount of homegrown tomatoes fresh off the vine and just for me! So in keeping with tradition, I offered him and his wife some homemade bread (because that seems like one of my better talents). His response?? Well it may not be appropriate for the blog, but just know that him and his wife were terribly excited!
