Sweet Potato Pumpkin Casserole

My new favorite - Sweet Potato Pumpkin Casserole

It is our first Thanksgiving in our new house, and we went all out! As anyone who knows me well knows, I LOVE Thanksgiving – it’s my favorite! I’m also very particular about the food that is at Turkey day – there are certain food that I MUST have there. I have to have sweet potatoes and I usually just have the canned kind with marshmallows, but I found a recipe for sweet potato pumpkin casserole – it was wonderful (I now have a new Thanksgiving favorite).

We decided to try doing a brine with the turkey this year – a salt water and herb soak for 8 hours before roasting. It made the turkey SO moist! And because we got an 11 pound turkey we had plenty of leftovers (yay for turkey soup and turkey sandwiches, and of course Christmas turkey enchiladas).

And as much as I love Thanksgiving, we can’t forget how much Jimmy pretty much hates it. So of course all the amazing food we made was almost all for me (which has meant a TON of leftovers…). Oh yeah, and Tesla had his first turkey feast, of course.
