Chocolate Cream Pie & Sweet Potato Fries & Dip

Since I make dinner all the time, The MR is making me dinner tonight - his little gift for Valentine's Day. I'm not to big of this "holiday", to me its just another day. I do think spending a little one on one time with my love and reminding each other why we love each other is important, though. I know we should do this the other days of the year, but come on, lets be honest and real, it doesn't happen everyday . So, The MR is making me steak! And um, yeah, just steak, he's a boy and veggies tend to be an after thought. I've agreed to make the salad and sweet potato fries. And, a yummy chocolate cream pie for dessert!

Sweet Potato Fries

The Stuff:
3 medium sweet potatoes cut into the same size strips
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

The How To:
  • Preheat oven to 450
  • Coat a cookie sheet with olive oil
  • In a ziplock bag mix spices and sweet potatoes, shake until coated
  • Arrange sweet potatoes onto cookie sheet in one layer

  • Bake for 20 minutes, flip and bake an additional 10 minutes or until crispy
  • Makes 3 servings
The Stuff & The How To:
Combine 1/4 cup low fat sour cream with 2 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika and 1 teaspoon chili powder. Dip away!

Chocolate Cream Pie
The Stuff:
1 package of prepared sugar-free chocolate pudding (I use the cook & serve kind, but the instant would work just fine. Make sure cook & serve is cooled before using)
1 package of reduce fat graham crackers processed into fine crumbs in food processor
1/4 cup light butter, melted
2 bananas sliced
8oz container of cool whip
Chocolate Shavings (optional)

The How To:
  • In a bowl mix graham cracker crumbs and butter and form a ball
  • Push ball down into a pie pan sprayed with Pam
  • Make sure sides are covered with crust and bottom has no holes
  • Line 1 banana on the bottom of pan
  • Refrigerate for an hour or so

  • Top with pudding
  • Top with last banana
  • Top with cool whip and chocolate shavings
  • Cool overnight if posssible, if not, at least an hour
  • Cut into 10 slices
