Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!!!

Everyone has their favorite dish on Thanksgiving & mine is sweet potato casserole. Today I am using Celebrating Sweets’ photos in my blog to present this dish. I am making this tasty casserole for the third time this year.

 This is a very simple but tasty dish. I made this for the first time two years ago for my family and they loved it. I never cared for sweet potato but it has grown on me the past few years. It has all of my favorite combinations in one. I love that the sweet potato has it’s natural sweetness. The Streusel is the cherry on top for me. I learned this dish by looking at multiple recipes and just putting my own recipe together. I came across Celebrating Sweets’ website on Pinterest and I saw the streusel and I definitely wanted to try it.

Thanksgiving is one of the only times you can get away with eating a lot; my favorite time of the year. A tradition I have been doing for many years is I eat until I cant anymore then go black Friday shopping to walk off all of the food I ate. Sounds like a good idea right?
