We were in Tallahassee for the depressing Florida State game this weekend.
We had fun, and we were kids-free which was totally weird.
Obviously, this comes as no surprise to most, but Thanksgiving is Thursday.
We are having 25 of our closest friends and family at our house for turkey day, so it is bound to get crazy 'round here.
Therefore, our menu-plan will look somewhat like this:
Breakfast and Lunch - anything we can eat to make room in the pantry and freezer.
Dinner Monday thru Wednesday - same as above
Thursday - stuff our faces with turkey and all the fixin's.
Friday thru Sunday - leftovers and more leftovers
Recipe of the week:
Sweet Potato Casserole
(I make it every Thanksgiving because it is my daddy's favorite)
4 cups sweet potatoes, mashed
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cups milk
6 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
chopped pecans, optional (I never use them)
Mix first six ingredients together and spread in a 9x13-inch dish. Mix topping ingredients together and sprinkle over sweet potato mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Makes approximately 10 servings. This can be made the day before Thanksgiving and kept in the refrigerator and baked on Thanksgiving morning (which I always do).
