Loaded Greek Sweet Potato Fries

When it comes to quick weeknight meals, I tend to go through regional phases of cooking in the most stereotypically American sense (a bit embarrassing). For a month or more I’ll make “Mexican” food – simple salads or tacos seasoned with cumin, cilantro and avocado, topped with salsa. Then I may move onto “Italian” for a couple weeks; spaghetti squash pasta, eggplant parmesan, pizzas, etc. until I run out of Josh’s tomato sauce.

 

This month has been all about “Greek” food. The phase began with a simple desire for grass-fed lamb and we’re only in the middle of it. These loaded Greek fries pile on all my favorite elements of Americanized Greek cuisine: oregano sweet potato fries topped with spiced lamb meat, tzatziki sauce, fresh tomatoes, feta and pickled red onions. They’re a perfect, satisfying and healthy alternative to greasy summer food.

Easy Tomato Bruschetta

Easy Tomato Bruschetta

This easy tomato bruschetta is almost too simple to write a post about. But when I started thinking about it, I realized I had never made bruschetta until I met Josh. In fact, I’m not sure I could list many ingredients beyond tomatoes. Josh introduced me to his very simple version of this Italian classic, which is always an appetizer favorite at parties or events. The secret to great bruschetta lies in the tomatoes: they need to be flavorful  and you need to “gut them.” After slicing the tomatoes, use a spoon to scoop out the entire inside of the tomato. What you’ll be left with is firm tomato chunks that hold the mixture together and don’t leave the bread soggy underneath.
