I've been very hungry today for some reason.  I guess i really haven't been eating too much but i have been going to snack on something every couple of hours or so, lol.  Maybe to make up for the few days last week when my stomach was wonky and didn't want to eat anything.

Thought i'd share one of my snacks that i made today, as it was really quite tasty!

Prepping these took all of 5 minutes, it was super quick.  Take a sweet potato and wash it well, then slice lengthwise.  Drizzle lightly with vegetable oil of choice and toss to coat, then sprinkle with sugar and/or brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Spread out on a baking sheet and pop in the (toaster) oven until cooked through and slightly crispy.  (For my toaster oven, i put them in at 550 watts for about 15 minutes, flipping halfway through).  If you like things extra sweet like me, drizzle with a bit of honey when they come out of the oven.  I inhaled these all.  Sooooo good!

One of my go-to "dinners" when i don't want to cook is temaki-zushi, because i always have a bunch of leftover rice in the fridge.  And i usually have a package of nori-sheets in my cupboard too.  This time it was Korean seaweed, my souvenir from the Sunbeam.  :)  

For me it's always just rice, cucumber and a little squeeze of mayo, but you could definitely get more creative and try putting in some canned tuna or other seafoods or veggies too.
For your health!

The sweet potatoes sound amazing. I love everything pumpkin/squash/sweet potato. I heard that they serve pumpkin noodles at some places in Japan. I might have to hunt those down.
Your temaki sounds great. I like simple foods. Like inari sushi. I have the pouches at home and love them just filled with rice.

Ohhh, pumpkin! I love everything pumpkin too. Never heard of the pumpkin noodle place but that sounds really good! Inari is also really good, one of my top 3 sushi. :)

Have to check with my friend where she got the pumpkin noodles. Though she might have made it herself. She's a kitchen queen. But if she did, I'll get the recipe!
