 I meant to get this post up last night, but there’s been sickness going around in the house.  Eli showed signs of a cold first, so I’m going to go ahead and blame this on him.  Thankfully his only seemed to last for a day but now I’m sick, exhausted and out of commission.  But, in true blogger fashion, I’m writing this post instead of napping :)

But, I just had to share these Quinoa and Sweet Potato Bites with you because they’re so good!  I’m constantly looking for healthy snacks that I can make ahead, so they are always there ready when my mid-day hunger hits.  If I don’t have these healthy snack options around I always just go straight for the chips.  And it turns out I can put away a lot of chips in a very short time!

    I’m always looking for more savory mid afternoon snacks, and this is such a great idea. I love making fritters but they’re not the quickest to cook one at a time. So I love these are baked instead. Hope you feel better soon!
