Southern Sweet Potato Casserole

3 c mashed sweet potatoes1 c sugar 1/4 c milk 2 eggs 1/2 c butter or margarine 1/2 - 3/4 pumpkin pie spice 1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix ingredients and put in casserole dish.
TOPPING
1 c brown sugar 1 c flour 1 c butter or margarine 1 c chopped pecans
Mix and put over top of casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
Hints: You can use canned sweet potatoes instead if you don't have fresh ones. I usually cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup. You might also like to add coconut but I don't usually. You can cut the eggs back to one if you really need to. (like when you forget to buy them and its 45 minutes to the nearest open grocery store and you want everything to be ready in 1 and 1/2 hours - ask me how I know this) Also if your casserole dish is smaller, use only 1/2 topping recipe or it will boil over, make a mess and just not taste as good. (ask me again how I know!) You also might like to add some spice to the topping as well. Maybe a tablespoon or so of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Ma…

Go, Go, Go Week!

This has been a full week! Monday called for many errands, hospital visitation, and grocery shopping. Yesterday my mom had a routine colonoscopy done. Today I need to let our pediatrician take a look at two of the children's ears. They have been sick with congestion and cough and are having some ear pain now. I sure don't want an ear infection to set in on Thanksgiving!
Cooking begins today for our meal tomorrow. I need to make the cornbread for the dressing. I will make it today and let it sit to dry out some. Tomorrow after trimming the crust and crumbling the rest up, I will add bread crumbs, onions, celery, spices, boiled eggs and broth before baking. I also want to go ahead and cook some of the vegetables. I am also going to make a pumpkin pie.
Supper tonight is frozen pizza...the only way the FisherMan will agree to that is knowing what kind of meal awaits him tomorrow LOL!
Oh, and I need to run right now but this afternoon I will post the recipe for sweet potato casserol…
