So, as I hope you know by now we’ve been doing this change of pace series of #Gratituesday posts this month where step back from the ministry/tech talk to talk about what we’re thankful for. The first week we talked about websites we’re thankful for. Last week we talked about our favorite Thanksgiving memory.
One thing I’m always grateful for is the fantastic spread of food on the Thanksgiving dinner table.
So, what’s your favorite Thanksgiving recipe?
That question is way outside of comfort zone because outside of pancakes and eggs and occasionally throwing something on the grill, I don’t cook. If I had to submit my own recipe it would probably be for… cranberry sauce. 1) Buy a can of cranberry sauce, 2) open it, 3) put it in a serving dish.
Since that’s pretty lame, I got my wife, Jennifer’s recipe for…
Whipped Sweet Potatoes
3 cans (15oz ea) sweet potatoes, drained
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
3 cups mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sweet potatoes, butter, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg in a medium bowl with electric mixer on mediumspeed until well blended.
Spoon into lightly greased 1 1/2 qt casserole dish; top with marshmallows.
Bake 15-20 minutes
Makes 10 servings 1/2 cup each
