Eating What I Crave

by Meghann on May 9, 2010

I only had one thing on my mind for dinner tonight: Nut Butter Crusted Parsnip & Carrot Fries.


I’ve made these before and have been CRAVING them ever since.


There is no word for how good these babies are and they are so simple to make. Just mix some olive oil & peanut butter (I’m out of almond butter ๐Ÿ™ ) then coat the carrots and parsnips before baking at 400 for 30 minutes. (original recipe found here)


Of course, dinner would not be complete with out a little green.



Yogurt + rolled oats


Dinner is served!! ๐Ÿ™‚


I wanted chocolate for dessert. I had a little mix of dark chocolate edamame, mini pb cups, chocolate power berries, and cheerios.


I’m not sure where today went. All of a sudden it’s 9:30? What’s up with that?!?!

The weekend was a blur and now it’s time to prepare for the start of another week!

Have a great night everyone!

I have those nights a lot where I only want to eat certain random combinations of foods. You just have to satisfy those cravings.

WOW! Those babies look good:) I must give them a try!

I need to make these fries asap – and I have parsnips on hand. YES!!

Dinners like that are the BEST! I’m reading “The Things We Eat When We’re Alone” and it’s full of interesting meals. Pretty amusing book!

I haven’t yet tried the nut butter fries craze! I need to get on it!

I seriously need to make this–so much deliciousness on one plate. Sometimes I definitely just crave a big plate of veg. ๐Ÿ˜€

12 Meghann May 10, 2010 at 5:41 am

I definitely need to try those – they look SO good!

Bar the green beans, I LOVE your dinner! Thick greek yogurt, nut butter fries…good choice!

I made parsnip fries yesterday as well! They are SOOO good. The only problem was, I ate the entire batch before my family got home to have any. Oops!! I can’t control myself around the yumminess (I had roasted about 4 x 5 inch parsnips!)

16 Matt May 10, 2010 at 7:59 am

Wow I need to try that!

17 Kelly May 10, 2010 at 9:43 am

I feel like the weekend was a blur also, so sad.

18 Michelle May 10, 2010 at 10:35 am

Aren’t those fries just awesome?! I swear no photo does the quite enough justice though.

We rush to get to the weekends and then they rush right by us. Such is life.

20 Tracey May 10, 2010 at 2:56 pm

Those look really good but I can’t even begin to imagine what they would taste like. Do they taste like nut butter?

21 Meghann May 10, 2010 at 2:58 pm

They taste like a nutty fry. ๐Ÿ™‚
