My husband is the one who does all the major cooking for all of the holidays. My role is to put together the menu, shop for all the ingredients, cook side dishes and plan out the entertainment. I try to balance out his hard work in the kitchen by whipping up simple side dishes that don’t require me to ask for any guidance. In our house it’s all about team work and keeping everything fun. My favorite side dish to cook for Thanksgiving is spicy mashed sweet potatoes. It’s the perfect side for the turkey and gravy, stuffing and even vegetables like green beans. Below is a quick step by step recipe to make the spicy mashed sweet potatoes.
2 lbs sweet potatoes
6 tbsps butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp brown sugar
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into pieces.
Boil in salted water for about 15-20 minutes or until soft.
Drain and mash with a fork.
Add butter, salt and pepper, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and beat well.
In a few simple steps you will have a delicious side dish you can call all your own! All that’s left to do is set the table (see my favorite silverware below) and set the mood with festive music (my husbands favorite part) and lighting (see candles below). To help you get your Thanksgiving day started I’ve teamed up with Target to give away a $25 egift card that you can use to get your kitchen ready for the holiday’s with all the amazing goodies in the Target wedding registry.
