Hi everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA–I was on vacation in Chicago last weekend, and got yet another gum surgery this week (let’s hope third time’s a charm!) I haven’t been in the kitchen much after the procedure, but was able to whip up these simple, savory mashed sweet potatoes, and they were delicious! These would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving dinner spread. :-)
