Best Freakin' Sweet Potato Fries – Spiced Curiosity #vegan #fries

best freakin’ sweet potato fries – a thanksgiving countdown

Happy holidays! Erit’s a little soon, huh? Well, Halloween (and to be honest, the whole month of October) was a blast but now I’m tingling with excitement for November. And by November, I definitely mean Thanksgiving. A holiday revolving around family, best friends, and food? Yes, please.

This is the first year I’m actually staying home instead of flying back Home for the festive holiday. It’s a bittersweet decision, but I’m pretty darn excited to enjoy traditions with my boyfriend’s family and create a few ones of my own. And below is one dish I’d love to bring to their house, as well as share with y’all.

Patatas Bravas, or potatoes with a temper, are a traditional Spanish tapas dish made up of golden fried potatoes drizzled in garlicky aioli and tomato sauce. What is not to love? Patatas Bravas immediately transport me back to Barcelona where I shamelessly ate my way through plate after plate.

During my first few trips to Barcelona, I was a poor college student looking to escape the harsh Parisian winter where I had been studying. I could not afford the luxury of paella or other fancy Spanish cuisine so I opted for these cheap and filling potatoes. The crisp, salty tubers satisfied me to no end. And don’t even get me started on the spiced red sauce mingling perfectly with all that smooth aioli. Of course I grew obsessed.

I love the city, but sometimes it’s great to get out. Removing myself from the hustling chaos clears my mind and always gives me a newfound appreciation for the city when I return. What is beauty without contrast? Anywho, a weekend trip to Long Island with my boyfriend, his brother, and his sister-in-law was perfect. Smack-dab in the middle of wine country, we drank in the greenery and skyscraper-less fields with peace and reflection. And a goat or two.
