Sweet and Spicy BLT & Spicy Sweet Potato Fries

(originally made

 Snow day today.   Since I've got both guys home, I made them frozen fish and tator tots, leaving me to "fend" for myself.    I'd grabbed the BLT recipe up when Rosie posted it, knowing I had some nice center cut bacon in the fridge.    I've also found a new favorite dressing, Ken's Light Options Ranch, and it was excellent on this.   Added some nice dark romaine and a sliced greenhouse tomato and it was perfect.

I found the fries in Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast Weeknight meals, can't get much easier than starting with frozen fries!    I normally like my sweet potato on the sweet side, but this was great.    Thumbs up for both  :)    Thank you Rosie for sharing the sandwich recipe!
