BAKED SWEET POTATOES TOPPED WITH SAUTÉED VEGGIES

Ingredients:
2 medium organic sweet potatoes, rinsed
2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium organic yellow onion, sliced into half rings
2 organic Roma tomatoes, diced
1 bag organic raw spinach, washed
2 eggs (optional for topping potato)

Directions:

Baked Sweet Potatoes
1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Stab the sweet potatoes with fork or knife so that they bake all the way through
3. Place sweet potatoes on sheet pan and drizzle 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil all over, then place in oven and let bake for 40 minutes.

Sautéed Veggies
1. In a non-stick skillet on medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil.
2. Add the onion to pan, and sauté until translucent with a light hue of gold (5-7 minutes).
3. In same skillet, add the diced tomatoes and cover with lid until cooked down almost into a sauce: 5-8 minutes
4. Toss in the raw spinach, mix thoroughly with the sautéed onions and tomatoes, and let cook until wilted.
5. Salt and pepper to taste: recommended no more than 1 tablespoon of each

To assemble, cut baked sweet potatoes down center, and fill with a tong full of sautéed veggies (then top with the fried egg if using), and sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.

Texting addicts rejoice — there’s now a designated lane on the sidewalk just for you!

You’ll just have to hop on a plane and fly to China.

A theme park called Yangren Jie or “Foreigner Street” in Chongqing, China has just installed an über cool lane just for avid texters.

The lane has spray painted images of dated cell phones indicating which lane is appropriate for texters to walk in. It even has a sign warning pedestrians, “cell phones, walk in this lane at your own risk.”

What do you think?!

Baristas are clearly skilled enough to whip up the perfect peppermint mocha latte with 3/4 foam and a heart on top, but they can’t seem to spell a damn name correctly. So what gives?

Well, according to one @Starbucks employee, they’re messing with you. They’re bored and you’re an easy target. And not only that, but there’s a 90% chance you’re going to snap a pic and post it all over the place. (Can you say free advertising?) Who needs billboards when you have 10 million people a day sharing pictures of your logo?

What wacky ways has the coffee giant spelled your name? Let us know in the comments!

Is that an engagement ring in your pocket or are you just happy to see us? A new slim engagement ring box keeps popping the question a surprise!
-
The Clifton engagement ring box is just 1 centimeter thick and looks like a wallet. The discrete box houses the ring in tiny cut outs, then spins it on a built-in stand when you open it! Pretty cool. However, the box comes with a pretty hefty price tag. While those old school ones are usually free with ring purchase, this box will set your guy back $90. A small price to pay for the surprised and delighted look on your face?

Tag your guy if you think he should know about this! ;)
