How Do You Make Sweet Potato Hash?
Who would have ever thought to use a cheese grater to make sweet hash browns? NOT ME. When we were in San Miguel, Lin’s mother-in-law made us a sweet potato kale hash protein bowl similar to this one and that’s what she used to grate the sweet potato. GENIUS. Here’s how simple it really is…
Step 1: Peel sweet potato. This step is actually optional, but for classic sweet potato hash, you’ll want to make sure your sweet potatoes are peeled.
Step 2: Place a large bowl or plate on your countertop and plop your cheese grater on top.
Step 3: Grate your sweet potato using the medium grate size. You can really use any size you want, but for this recipe, you’ll want your sweet potato hash browns to be medium.

This weekend was super chill. On Saturday Lin and I did a few recipes and then ventured to the outlet malls to see what kind of deals we could find. FUN FACT: I NEVER buy anything full price…unless it’s from Lululemon and even then I get my R&D discount. Guess where we struck gold?
Crazy, right? I haven’t shopped at Old Navy since I was in middle school, but they are stepping up their game and their stuff is SUPER reasonably priced! I got a bunch of tanks, a cute dress, and a romper. We also got some really cute sweaters from the LOFT outlet for $3.88. Another FUN FACT: In Minnesota, clothes are not taxed. JACKPOT.
On Saturday night, I watched a soccer game and then literally went to bed at 8:45 PM. I had to get up at 4:45 that morning to take my brother to the airport, so I was exhausted by 9 PM. I don’t even care because 8:45 PM was really like 9:45 PM with daylight savings 😛 Sunday was pretty chill too. I went to a coffee shop in the AM and then met my PEC gym friends for a St. Patty’s Day brunch at Morrissey’s Irish Pub after they did an 8 mile run around the lake. Unfortunately, I can’t run at the moment (THANK YOU BROKEN FOOT…STORY COMING TOMORROW!), so I scored us a table. At least I’m good for something. Everyone ordered bloody’s, but I think they are gross (who is with me!), so I got a cider. NOM.
