Sweet Potato Love~ Prepping & Being Loving While I Still Can



It finally came today! My huge box of sweet-smelling candles that I put up in my candle stash. But it’s the sweet potato marshmallow candle I opened first. I sniffed it and fell deeply in love. So on the kitchen table, it sits to be burned for a few hours every day! I tell you it smells amazing as the aroma goes throughout the house.

I also purchased packets and packets of instant sweet potatoes to go into my food storage pantry stash.

And so my husband picked up a bag full of fresh ones to make for breakfast. I peeled, chopped, and put them in a crockpot then added a half stick butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice and a few tablespoons full of vanilla extract, and a teaspoon of salt, and once it was good and done I added a bag full of vegan marshmallows and closed the lid to allow the mellows to quickly melt throughout the hot potatoes. I have to tell you it was a delicious breakfast meal. We had them with cups of caramel flavored coffee, with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top of frothy almond milk added to the coffee and a small glass of orange juice. I tell you something else, I just am so in love our “Keurig single serve k cup coffee maker” because it has attached to it a frother to make lattes and cappuccino automatically while the coffee is dripping in your mug. So all you do is add the milk to it’s cup, sit it in the compartment and it makes the milk so frothy. Its really a simple way to make a cup of delicious coffee with no fuss in few minutes. I like that I have no coffee pot to wash and no coffee grounds to dispose, just toss the little K cups, rinse the frother and your done.

So we sat, ate and chat about all sorts of subjects and things that was on our minds.

I’m busy making every moment count. Shutting my door to the rest of the world and letting my days be as private and enjoyable as possible. Not one hour will I waste because tomorrow is not promised to me so I am making the most of everyday, every single moment. Doing what gives me joy. Letting go of worry and unhappiness. Kissing and hugging on my husband everyday and checking in on family and friends, telling them I love them. I decided to be happy while I can and be grateful while I still can and be as pleasant, kind and sweet as I can because really I can.
