Rosemary Parmesan Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes make my my mouth and tummy happy and these “Rosemary Parmesan Sweet Potatoes” put a big fat smile on my face! I  keep these orange, odd shaped, full of fiber babies in my house all the time and they always find a way into my weekly diet. And tonight they are all mine because after working a long day I didn’t feel like slaving out a meal yet I still wanted a meal with a home cooked feel. That’s when I decided Ralph’s supermarket will be in charge of making my rotisserie chicken (I delegated that job to them) and I will bang out my easy yet tasty “Rosemary Parmesan Sweet Potatoes.” It’s the perfect combination with a store bought rotisserie chicken. Yes, this bitch is quick on her toes and I let Ralph’s make my chicken!  Then I banged out these “Rosemary  Parmesan Sweet Potatoes” and wa-la meet my dinner. My house smells delicious and my plate taste like Thanksgiving. How can you argue with clean eating especially when it reminds you of Thanksgiving? Please don’t forget to tag a friend, share on social media, and comment below because we love to hear from you!
