Sew & Tell Friday #8

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving!!!  Anyone braving the crowds for Black Friday?  Not me.  Only did it once...hope not to repeat the experience.

On Monday, I finished the third coin quilt.  If you haven't already, you can click here to see how I solved my too short sashing issue.

This Friday as part of Sew & Tell Friday, Amy asked us to share some of our yummy Thanksgiving recipes.  Here is a family and friend favorite:

Sweet Potato Casserole - The Mississippi Cookbook

4 cups cooked sweet potatoes                                           1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 cup butter                                                                       1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups sugar                                                                      1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
4 eggs, slightly beaten                                                       1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Add butter, sugar, beaten eggs, spices, milk and 3/4 cup coconut to the cooked potatoes.  Save 1/4 cup coconut for topping.  Mix well.  Pour into greased 7 1/2 by 12 inch baking dish.  Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup coconut on top.  Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.  Serves 10.  NOTE:  RECIPE STATES BAKE FOR 35 MINUTES.....MY OVEN TAKES MUCH LONGER...SO ALLOW FOR EXTRA TIME.

I forgot to take a picture of the casserole until we started eating...oops.
