The Start Of Something New!

We decided to go a little crazy in the kitchen today! We were really craving some egg rolls, but midway through the egg roll prep we found some sweet potatoes and thus the fry chopping began. But you can't have fries without some burgers right? So here comes some salmon patties fresh off the grill. We had fun getting down in the kitchen today and even threw in a fennel cranberry salad to finish it off. 

Although some may not like to cook, having fun in the kitchen always makes the task more  enjoyable. Whenever us sisters get in the kitchen it is always a good time, seems more like a fun past time than a so called "job". Whenever you get cooking, get a partner in there with you and see how much fun you have :). 

We caught the "fitness bug", which is what inspired today's food shenanigans and us wanting to eat a lot better. NO! we are not health crazy and yes we do cheat sometimes but you have to start somewhere and work your way up. Below are the recipes we prepared today, so go ahead and see what you can cook up!!:)
