Sweet Potato Casserole


A few years back Craig’s mom came to stay with us over Thanksgiving.  We both had to work, so she offered to cook Thanksgiving dinner for us.  One dish Craig requested for her to make is this version of sweet potato casserole, and we’ve made it ever since for every holiday dinner. 

When I make it, I split it into 2, freezing ½ for another yummy dinner.  Now my best friend requested it, so she could make it for her holiday celebration.  Sorry no pictures, but as soon as I bake it again, I’ll take pictures…..
