This could be a fall thing, a back-to-school thing, or just a fun food thing; but I am sooooper into foods that remind me of being a kid.

The latest example: tots.

Growing up, tater tots were the best; and my favorite day of the week was Wednesday. On Wednesdays, the cafeteria served chicken balls (yes, that was a thing and now I’m totally grossed out even thinking about it) and tater tots. It was fried food heaven.

Obviously my diet has changed a little since high school.

Now my tots look a little more like this:

  • canned wild pink salmon
  • extra veggies like sweet potato and green onions
  • cassava flour… because I’m living that GF life

And I’m loving it!

    These look yummy. What other flour can I use instead of cassava? I don’t have that but I have a large selection of other gf flours.
    I would love to subscribe, also.
