All-American Thanksgiving World Cup Dinner

I’m making an all-American World Cup dinner today to send good vibes to the team. They play Ghana today. Go USA!!!!

Here’s the dinner — Thanksgiving! I’m roasting a turkey. I made stuffing, Baked Cranberries (and added Grand Marnier), Mashed Sweet Potatoes and later will roast some asparagus. Dessert will be a Blueberry Crumb Cake with ice cream.

Here’s a recipe for the Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Takes almost no time. No  sweetener in these. If you have a sweet tooth you can add some honey or maple syrup. But even someone on a diet can eat these. Sweet potatoes are healthy. No need for the butter either.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

4 large sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons butter, optional

2 teaspoons grated fresh orange peel

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup orange juice, approximately

salt to taste

Roast the potatoes in a 400 degree oven for about one hour or until tender. Cut the potatoes in half and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the butter, if used, and stir it in. Add the orange peel, cinnamon and the juice. Mash the ingredients and blend them thoroughly. Add more juice if needed to make the sweet potatoes fluffy. Taste for seasoning and add salt to taste.
