Sweet Potato Fries w/Lime Mayo

IMG_3132I am really struggling with my time management this week. Do you ever feel extremely overwhelmed with everything you need to do but yet the overwhelming feeling makes you just want to ignore everything rather than motivate you to get it all done? Most of the time, I feel like I’m pretty good at self-motivating and checking things off my to-do list. Not the case this week. I came home from work last night so overwhelmed with all I needed to accomplish that my husband just looked at me sideways and stayed out of my way. Oops…

Anyway, with a full week of work packed into 4 days, a mid-week trip to California, wedding dress shopping for with my little sister and life in general, I’ve decided that it’s time to get back on track with my trusty planner.

On a completely unrelated topic, somehow, I could eat about 3 lbs of these sweet potato fries and still not feel guilty. They are DE-LI-CIOUS paired with the lime mayo, the flavors blend so well, you’re friends and family will think you went to culinary school! AND…they only take 30 minutes, start-to-finish, so they’re great for week nights too.

Sweet Potato Fries w/Lime Mayo
2 large sweet potatoes cut into 1/2″ strips
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 tsp finely grated lime zest
2 tsp fresh lime juice
chopped fresh cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss sweet potatoes and oil on a foil-lined large baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.
2. Roast, turning once, until golden brown and crisp, 25-30 minutes
3. While potatoes cook, whisk mayonnaise, lime zest and juice in a small bowl. Refrigerate until fries are ready to serve.
4. Season fries with salt, top with cilantro, and serve with lime mayo for dipping.
