It's Black Friday
|Nana and her girls.|
How did your holiday go? Ours went well. Our family came for breakfast, and then the rest of the day they went to other relatives homes. We had our dinner about 6ish and only our one son and his boys came. It was laid back and very nice.
And as I stated at the first of the week I tried a few new recipes so I thought I'd share.
|French Toast Casserole|
Traditional French Toast
For the Casserole I used a tailgating recipe that I had posted the link to earlier. Check here for the recipe (scroll down). And the only changes I made was I used 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup Irish Cream. And I also added 1 tsp cinnamon. I sprinkled some over the bread cubes before I added the egg mixture and I added the tsp to the mixture and mixed it in.
|Spicy Sweet Potatoes|
Candied Sweet Potatoes
Spicy Sweet Potatoes
Mashed potatoes and Gravy
I made my stuffing as usual, I used Pepperidge Farm and added celery, onion, garlic, 1/2 chicken broth 1/2 white wine for the liquid. This year I threw in some cubed honeycrisp apples. Touched it off just nicely. On the Spicy Sweet Potato recipe, I only added jalapeno's because if you're going to have it spicy, just saying. Check here for the recipe.
Have a great holiday and stay safe out in the crazy stores. I will continue to look for comments about what you are grateful for, family traditions or recipes for contest entries through Sunday. The winner will have their choice of a signed print book of mine.
