thanksgiving sweet potatoes

So our family does Thanksgiving and Christmas meals in a sort of potluck style... my brother and sis in law host since they have a great house for our whole family to gather together in.  The usual Thanksgiving protocol is they do the turkey{s} and host, then we all sign up to bring the rest of the goodies... this year I volunteered to change up my usual green bean casserole and unicorn casserole {it's a cornbread casserole that has been dubbed unicorn in my family, but that's a story for another time}... so this year I opted to step outside my comfort zone and do the sweet potato casserole and dessert.  I did a scouring of the internet and here are the potential candidates that intrigued me....






hmmm... can we just eat sweet potatoes for thanksgiving this year?... This'll be a touch choice, but it think I'll go with the last recipe as that photo speaks to me most... It's all about the presentation on what recipe I'll try! =)

I truly think that the ones who host the holiday meal are the ones who do the most work. They have the anxiety of cleaning and making everything perfect before the guests arrive. With Lisa and Britt who do have a great house for entertaining, every detail will be considered. And I know that she doesn't just "do the
turkey" - she does so much more! I always appreciate going to their house - it's always an inspiration because Lisa loves to decorate. Plus it takes the burden off of us trying to cook and fit everyone into our little house! Thanks ahead of time!
