The New McCain Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

The New Crispy McCain Sweet Potato FriesPeople who know me very well , know I have a love affair with fried/slap chips so much that every Friday after work before I go home get myself a packet. Received a voucher for me to go buy The New McCain Crispy Sweet Potato Fries, sounds like an alternative replacement because they are low in carbs.

Sweet potatoes are known to promote digestive health, heart health and they are also a good source of Vitamin C and Beta Carotene. They are so bright orange that my daughter thought I was deep frying carrot chips. My daughter hates chips so much, but she enjoyed the new McCain Crispy SweetThe New Crispy McCain Sweet Potato FriesThey are so easy to cook you can bake or deep fry them the choice is yours. Prefer deep frying them because its quicker than baking them. While deep frying, in hot oil takes about 3 minutes for them to be cooked, baking takes 20 minutes, the product cooks best from frozen. Totally a fan of things that cook fast and quickly so we can eat.

Modern Roti with Woolworths

Prepared some light dinner last night decided to try roti, thanks to Woolworths there was no flour,mixing I found ready made rotis just had to fry them. We had some Roti, tomato gravy added some spices to make curry, Boerewors and some cucumber and carrots soaked in vinegar.
Woolworths Roti

Indian Spices

Pretty simple, but my daughter was happy because she loves rotten and I hate flour that’s why I skip almost all my baking classes during my studies, but thanks to modern day Woolworths ready made roti I am the best mom in the world in my daughter’s eyes what more can I ask for. Wow, I really enjoyed the Woolworths Plain Roti’s so much that I will be buying them again.
