My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I'm not sure how it got here so fast. Our Thanksgiving is going to be a quiet one this year. Being a blended family, our children have 2 homes in which to celebrate all the holidays. Actually, my boys have never been with me on Thanksgiving since their dad and I split up. We did that because we wanted our divorce to make as small of an impact on our boys as possible and that meant that they would continue the tradition of having their Thanksgiving meal with their dad's family. In exchange, I got to have them every Christmas morning. It's worked out okay. I think that Jacob and Jared are old enough now to make some changes and so I'll need to talk to their dad about that.

Jason and I will have all the kids on Thanksgiving morning and we will do a big brunch for them. Then they will go to the other parent's and have the big meal. Jason and I don't plan on making a turkey with all the trimmings. The one dish that I MUST have is Sweet Potato Casserole. It is my absolute favorite! I make it every year and have shared our family recipe with many friends. This year I made a digital recipe card to share.

I used the freebie kit Everescents by Liz @ Sweet Digi Scraps and freebie alpah by Ziggle Designs

If you think you don't like sweet potatoes, give this recipe a try. It's almost like a dessert.

As I was clicking on your link, I was thinking, "Crissie's favorite dish is sweet potato casserole". Yup. I'm right. Although it really wasn't a favorite of mine you did a fantastic job creating a recipe card for it. I really liked Mom's waldorf salad and her over-baked turkey (when she bothered to cook one).
