A lighter healthier version of the “french fry”, Crispy BAKED Sweet Potato Fries with a surprise seasoning and served with Chipotle Lime Aioli!

So this week, guys…. complete and utter exhaustion on my end! Holy Moly!

I started off the week by making a recipe that I was doing for a company and then had to take photos of “said recipe” that are going to be on their website, which you think wouldn’t be hard. After all I shoot pictures of food all the time right?

But the pictures needed to be horizontal pictures per the company and apparently I have forgotten how to shoot horizontal photos!!! Eek… so needless to say it took me much longer than it needed to.

By the time I had finished with the photo shoot it was time for our neighborhood VBS (Vacation Bible School). Have you guys ever been to one of those or sent your kids to one?

Normally VBS’s are put on by a church. Its kinda like a summer camp for kids with games, crafts, lessons, and all around fun .. but focused on learning more about the Bible. Well, my sweet sister in law Mackenzie decided to put one on for the neighborhood .. run by THE NEIGHBORHOOD. So Mike and I are in charge of the games station.

It has been a blast! We have been doing trust walks, blind folded obstacle courses, bean bag toss, trust falls, human knots, and all kinds of stuff. It has been amazing getting to know the kids in our neighborhood and watching them as their minds turn trying to process what it means to trust God and to trust those around them.

My favorite part so far though has been getting to know our neighbors {the kiddos parents}. How often do you get out and talk to your neighbors? What about having them over for dinner and inviting them into your home?

I tried to make it a goal this week to really make a connection with one of the parents and set a date to have them over for dinner.

Guess what? It happened last night! Super excited to have her and her family over for dinner, they actually just moved to Texas from a different state.

Now, just need to figure out what to make for dinner.

I’m thinking comfort food! It always makes a good impression, right? I know it would with me.

If comfort is the goal then these Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries totally fit the bill and then some …

They are crispy on the exterior and soft in the center, but the best part is… they are BAKED and their is an unexpected ingredient in the seasoning that will tease your tastebuds.

Everybody needs a partner in crime. Batman needed Robin, Bonnie needed Clide, Starsky needed Hutch, and these Sweet Potato Fries need this Chipotle Lime Aioli.

Just a warning, once you start eating these bad boys you won’t be able to stop. But you know what, its okay because everyone else will be doing the same thing!! Hope you enjoy!

    first off, your sister-in-law is amazing for putting together a VBS for your neighborhood. . I love that!! I grew up going to VBS and helped volunteer at many when I was older. . my youngest still isn’t old enough to go but when she is, watch out! 🙂 ok, I love these baked sweet potato fries and cannot wait to make this Chipotle Lime Aioli. yumm!

      haha… It is a blast. My little guy wasn’t quite old enough yet either but bc Mike and I were volunteering he got to experience his first one. (special treatment hehe) The last night I was putting him to bed he said “trust God” which was the theme for the VBS, just melted my heart! 🙂

      SO glad you liked the recipe Alice, that aioli is absolutely awesome!

      haha.. love it! 🙂 I’ll take a sweet potato fry over a regular fry any day… especially with this sauce! Thanks for the pin girl!

  6. Heather @ My Overflowing Cup

    I won’t judge you because I usually choose the fries over the salad, too. I bake sweet potato fries at least once a week, but now I have a new dipping sauce for them. The cinnamon sounds like an interesting variation. Thank you!
