Starting Thanksgiving Preparations.....

I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes which is a family traditions at Thanksgiving time.  It comes from a cookbook entitled Gracious Goodness...Charleston.  This cookbook was picked up while we were visiting this beautiful and historical city.

Sweet Potatoes at 130 Broad
41/2 cups of sweet potatoes mashed
1/3 cup sugar
3 eggs slightly beaten
3/4 cup butter melted
11/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk......combine these ingredients mixing well and pour into a buttered casserole dish.

11/2 cup s brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
6 tablespoon butter, melted
11/2 cups pecan chopped.
Mix the above ingredients and sprinkle over the top of the casserole.  Bake in a preheated oven 350 degrees for 35 - 45 minutes.
This a decadent any other time you would think this was a dessert.  However, at Thanksgiving we pull out all of the stops!

I have a few more quilts from the silent auction.  I have always had an appreciation for Amish quilts.  The hand quilting on this little quilt makes it extra special.

This is such an adorable train quilt.

Something's Fishy.

A clever little quilt sure to impress some lucky angler.

Drop dead gorgeous is what this quilt is.  This was a live auction item.  The quilt is entitled Autumn Splendor and was created and quilted by the Colonial Quilters, who are responsible for putting on this show every two years.  The hand quilting was spectacular.

Time for the drawing.  The 3 names drawn are: Sue Hatcher, Deb Worthman and JoAnn Borges.  Contact me with your pattern choice and remember to include your address for mailing.  The Sweet and Simple book is exempt.
