Ahhh, I just love Pinterest. Don’t you? So inspirational, so many ideas, so many cute clothes! And TOO MANY delicious-looking foods! Sometimes I feel like I pack on some pounds just by browsing through my FOOD board. HA! I really am thankful for all the wonderful food ideas and recipes on Pinterest. I’ve made a few and blogged about one here. I have tried a few others, but I’m not sure they’re blog-worthy. Anyways, I tried TWO new recipes last night and they are yummy enough to share! 🙂

First up, WHITE SANGRIA! I love a good fruity drink, especially during warm weather. The past two weeks of 70+ temps and sunshine put me in the mood for this one. And one of the best things about it: super easy! 1 bottle of white wine, 3 cans of Fresca and fresh fruit. BOOM! You’re done! I used Arbor Mist’s Mango-Strawberry Moscato (less than $5!) and frozen strawberries, which acted as ice cubes. It was very refreshing and delicious!

I also made the Arby’s immitation fries…and supposedly they’re “skinny”. Not as easy as the sangria, but fairly close. Here’s the ingredients:

1-3/4 teaspoons salt, divided
4 russet potatoes (8 ounces each; 2 pounds total), peeled
Olive oil spray
2-1?2 tablespoons egg substitute
1-1?2 tablespoons unbleached or all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons paprika
1?4 teaspoon cayenne
1?8 teaspoon garlic powder
1?8 teaspoon onion powder

9 times out of 10 I don’t follow recipes 100%, so I used two large baking potatoes and didn’t peel them. I also didn’t use a twin curl cutter to make actual curly fries like Arby’s serves (who has one of those anyways?). I just cut a mixture of skinny and thick-ish fries instead. So you cut fries, boil them for three minutes, combine ingredients in large bowl, toss fries in bowl, bake on cookie sheet (make sure you spray it first) for 18-24 minutes at 450 and that’s it in a nutshell. You can see the entire recipe here.

Put these two together and you’ve got a pretty good warm-weather snack! I know it’s going to cool down this weekend for most of my readers, but who says you can’t enjoy in chilly weather or indoors? Want more fun recipe ideas? Check out my FOOD board on Pinterest! It’s soooo delicious-looking!!!
