What would we be without our health? I am so thankful for a body that works properly. I can button my own shirts, I can conduct myself to the restroom when I need, I can feed myself, I can run, jump and play. Aren’t we all blessed to be given such an incredible machine, to conduct our spirits around? I may have hated my silly looking feet when I was a child, but now, I am thankful for how well they function. I can walk, run, jump and even pick things up with my feet, when I am short on arms! (how’s that for talent? huh?) In this world where our bodies are never good enough for the critic, I would like to thank my body for being so good to me. I hope we can all see past our physical flaws and appreciate our ability to move and work!
On to the recipe….I don’t know about you but I LOVE sweet potatoes. They are a year round staple in our home, and since they are one of the healthiest vegetables I feel good about that. It does matter how you fix them though and I am absolutely positive that the nutritional benefit of these sweet potatoes is pretty far gone. I just can’t help myself for Thanksgiving.
This is actually a relatively new recipe at our house, a few years ago year my sister brought this version along, and while I still really love my mom’s version, this is what we are making this year.
Also, make ahead to save your Thanksgiving day from overload! I made mine on Monday, and popped them in the freezer. They will be the easiest thing to “get ready” (just thaw and bake) for Thursday’s Thanksgiving feast!
