Learn something new everyday!

Did you know that sweet potatoes are in the same family as Morning Glories? I had no idea!  So weird to think that when you eat a sweet potato you’re eating a Morning Glory, eh?


And, did you know you can make a super quick and healthy lunch with sweet potatoes and kale in around 10 minutes? I didn’t know about that either until my friend Meredith from Penelope Loves Lists clued me in to this tasty treat from sixoneseven. ETA: We don’t have TJ’s around here — Austin is the HQ of Whole Foods, ha ha — so I use a peanut sauce from Whole Foods — I think any would work.  :)

I’ve made it three times now, it’s that good. J really likes it too — I made a big bowl of it today (that I reluctantly shared, ha!).

AND!  One more thing that I learned — filters can really save your lenses when you forget to latch your camera bag and your J picks said bag up out of the car and the lens drops 4 feet onto concrete. EEKS!  The filter broke into a zillion pieces, but the lens appears to be okay — tested it out on this shot. WHEW.  Do you think I will ever learn to latch the camera bag tho…?

How about you, did you learn anything new today?
