Clean Sweet Potato Fries and Aioli

Second day of school back from spring break and still feels like a drab. It will take a couple of days to get back into the swing of things, no matter how much homework I have to get done.

 For dinner my mom and I made sweet potato fries with an avocado aioli. As usual, they parents were pleasantly surprised with how great it tasted and we finished the whole plate off within minutes :)
