you wish you had dinner at my house tonight

Because I made these sweet potato fries:
I go on kicks a lot, sometimes its burritos, sometimes its Brussels sprouts, and now, its coconut. How can I incorporate it in every meal?

To today, for dinner I made my new favorite thing:
Coconut honey sweet potato fries with sweet chili fry sauce.
You heard me.

Heres how ya do it:
Peel and chop up your sweet potatoes in fry-like shapes (I used two honk'n ones).
Dump them into a big bowl, toss with enough olive oil to coat them all.
Add about 1 tsp coarse sea salt (obviously adjust more/less depending on how many potatoes you use)
Then add fresh minced garlic, I added a LOT but thats just cause I love it.
Then, then you add your glorious shredded coconut. I probably added about 1/4 cup? I don't know, just enough to they were a little coated with the goodness.
Line some cookie sheets with foil, and dump the fries on them so they are just one layer.
Pop'm in the oven at 375*f and check them after about 10 minutes, flip them over a bit, then bake until desired softness/crispyness.
Pile them on a big plate and drizzle with raw honey and a little more salt.
BAM.

For the fry sauce, I simply put one part sweet chili sauce and one part mayo in a bowl and stirred it all up. 

OH MY LANTA. We ate them all gone.

Viva la coconut! And viva la sweet chili sauce! aka, nectar from the gods.
