With Thanksgiving drawing near I am reminded how very blessed I am. I enjoy family, friends and the many warm relationships I have formed through this business.
I hope you'll take a moment and reflect on the blessings in your own life. You and I are very rich and I'm not talking about money!
One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is FOOD. In fact, I can just smell pumpkin pie baking any time of year and it brings back memories of family and friends at the Thanksgiving table together.
Well, speaking of good smells, I wanted to share a favorite recipe with you. Put this dish out on the Thanksgiving table and watch it disappear!
Hoping you have a truly blessed Thanksgiving holiday!
My Special Sweet Potato/Pecan Bake
2 quarts cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (not canned)
3 tablespoons bourbon (follow your conscience with the remainder of the bottle)
1 stick butter (use the real thing)
2 cups pecan halves
salt and pepper
½ cup packed brown sugar
Before you prepare the dish, first roast the pecans:
In a shallow baking pan spread pecans in one layer and bake at 325° about ten minutes. Toss hot pecans with two tablespoons butter and sprinkle with salt. Set aside.
Mix hot mashed sweet potatoes with six tablespoons of butter, the bourbon, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place in a three-quart baking dish and cover with toasted pecans. Sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake at 325° for approximately 30-45 minutes or until top is brown.
