For Supper Tonight

Here are a few things I will have cooking for supper tonight Sloppy Joe meat on Whole Wheat Rolls with Sweet Potato Fries.

Whole Wheat Rolls, from Finding Joy in My Kitchen
1 1/2 T yeast
1 C + 1 T warm water
1/3 C oil
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 C White Whole Wheat Flour

Begin by dissolving the yeast in the water. Let sit for 3-5 minutes until yeast is foamy.
Add in the oil, sugar and salt.
Then, add in the flour, 1 C at a time stirring until incorporated.
Knead the dough for 3-5 minutes, until the dough is well formed and easy to work with.
Add additional flour as needed to get the dough to become workable.
Divide the dough into 9-12 sections and roll into balls. {9 if you'd like larger rolls, 12 if you'd like smaller ones}.
Place the rolls on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Cover.
Set in a warm place and allow the dough to rise/rest for ~20 minutes.
Then, bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned.

Sweet Potato Fries
Peel 2-3 sweet potatoes
Cut into fries
Lightly coat with olive oil and sprinkle with season salt.
Spread fries in a single layer on a baking sheet.
(I bake mine on parchment paper so there is no sticking and fries don't break apart as much when flipping.)
Bake at 425 F for 10 minutes, flip fries and bake for another 10 minutes or until tender.



  1. Nice! looks delicious. I made barbequed chicken in the crock pot and was proud of myself- but your meal looks awesome!

  2. We had sweet potatoes on Tuesday too! I sliced and then boiled them before basting them with teriyaki sauce. They went on the grill with our steaks. They were good but the family wasn't as fond of them. I'll try the fries next time!

  3. Sweet potato fries are one of my favorites. Does Dan like them?
