Foxy Frangipani
It has been a while since I had my Foxy-alone-weekend. :)
This recent weekend was my clean the super messy room weekend, so that means no going out, not even for meals.

I bought some sweet potatoes and a pumpkin on Friday night, not sure what to do with them haha.

I have a very bad habit - I don't hunt for food till I'm close to die from starvation. If I cook, there wont be a fixed set of time for cooking. (Where are my disciplines!!?)

So because of that, I ended up just steaming the sweet potatoes; using my rice cooker. Haha yep rice cooker! Just wash the sweet potatoes thoroughly and place them into the rice cooker. Fill it about half with water, and cook! :)

Just these kept me full for almost half a day!

A little info about the nutrition of sweet potatoes:
~ Low in calories
~ Rich in Vitamin A
~ Good source of potassium, Vitamin C, B6, riboflavin, copper, pantothetic acid and folic acid

When buying sweet potatoes, select sound, firm roots. 
Store in a dry, unrefrigerated bin. Do not refrigerate, because this gives it a hard core and an undesirable taste when cooked.

Once cooked, sweet potatoes can be stored for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.

Of course I must have made some nourishing drink to pamper the soul?
For a glowing and radiant complexion, I made Red Dates with Dried Longan drink.

I used about 10 red dates and 6 pcs of dried longan. Slow cook for about 3-4 hours since I was busy cleaning. No need to add rock sugar as the longan gives a pleasant sweet taste :)
