I spotted these lovely mirrors at the Ross in Pasadena, Texas. Which means it should be available in other Ross stores as well - unless they have been picked up already! There were a handful of the sunburst gold mirrors which was only $16.99! I had to travel past Houston on Monday and did not have available internet which is why the one day late post. I had something else in mind to share with you guys today, but when I found these mirrors, I knew that I had to let you know about these stunners! Go get 'em!

The scorching summer heat can become tolerable if we eat the right food items. Just like in winter we eat more soups and hearty meals to keep ourselves warm; light and fresh dishes keep us rejuvenated and hydrated in the summer. Such is this recipe. A few different types of fresh produce cooked together to bring elegance in taste and color to your meal. The right mix of vegetables also enhance taste considerably. So lets see how to make this lovely dish.

During my trip to Doan's Nursery in the winter of last year, I purchased a jasmine seedling and a kaffir lime seedling. The jasmine refused to grow at all till now. It sprouted two large leaves. But more than that it has been sprouting jasmine buds all over its two frail thin branches. You can tell from looking at the images, can't you? Well, I check every morning like a giddy little girl to see the progress. Of course, I will share those photos with you again :D Happy Friday People!

This is my number one way of making sweet potatoes. I usually bake these a couple of times in a week for dinner - as a side dish to any of my entrées. You can devour them just like this or add them to a another recipe. And it has way better nutrition than regular potatoes. Serve these baked medallions under a poached/fried egg and there is breakfast!
Take a good baking tray - one that does not require a foil or parchment to bake. Baking on the tray gives the potatoes a color on the back as well as on the top. Foil/parchment will hinder that. Spray wil cooking oil [olive oil]. Cut the sweet potato in medallions. Place each down on the tray. Now spray one more time over the potatoes. Sprinkle salt and fresh cracked pepper. You can also sprinkle some hot chili powder or cayenne for that extra kick. If you can't live without cheese, then top them with some grated cheese. Bake at 350 for 40 mins. Bon appétit!
