A Thanksgiving Family Tradition Table Cloth - I love this. Is it weird to start it on a random year ? It's not like it's the beginning of our marriage, or the first time our family has been together, or that we have new babies in the family or anything. When and how do you start new traditions?
It was in “The Harvey House Cookbook” that we found this excellent recipe for sweet potatoes candied with confectioners’ sugar and butter. It is best served warm rather than piping hot, which makes it convenient for big meals like Thanksgiving. Bake it before you roast your turkey, then reheat it briefly just before serving.
