Some more views of all that FOOD!
UMMMMM.....I think my sweet potato casserole turned out better than usual too. It's so yummy with the walnuts and the brown sugar and butter make it so yummy. Almost caramelizes the top.
Here is the food...........on the small table and it's all but GONE! WHAT? No leftovers you say? Not to worry..............most of it is in the kitchen and we will be eating this for the rest of the weekend.
Took some candid shots of Aaron .......he was wearing his new sweater for the occasion. Muffin was in her usual begging position at the table. Aaron's Grandma bought him a cute Turkey Beanie. Below is a pix of my yankee candle...........I love the spiced pumpkin smell.
I don't really have a recipe for my sweet potato casserole. My sister Wanda gave me this recipe just by making the casserole at my house one holiday. I loved it so much I make it every Thanksgiving. It's so easy and so yummy! I don't have a recipe but I did take a photo of each step. The only step I didn't show was peeling the yams and cutting them up in small chunks and than boiling them. After the yams are done boiling and are soft(to the touch with a fork). Hand mash them with a potato masher with a little butter and a little milk. It should look similar to the first photo below. The second photo I just dotted butter into the potatoes. The third photo I spread a layer of Brown Sugar over. Fourth and final photo I spread chopped up walnuts over the top and you pop it in the oven on 350 for 45 minutes or more. As seen here I use a wide but shallow casserole dish.
I can't wait for tomorrow's left-overs..............hope everyone had a wonderful day with loved ones! Now I am going to go sleep off the Sleepy Turkey feelings. Night Night!
