My Thanksgiving spread was so pitiful that I’m already working on Christmas to avoid any disasters.
My cornbread dressing was apparently served in a dish that had not been rinsed properly and it tasted like Dawn Liquid.
Ditto for the Green Bean Casserole of which the only edible part was the O & C onion rings on the top.
I’m determined to present a Christmas dinner to remember. Here’s my dilemma. My family doesn’t care for sweet potatoes or anything made with marshmallows – well, except for S’Mores over a campfire. I cannot find a recipe that doesn’t call for the white sticky puffs of unknown origin. What the heck is a marshmallow anyway and who came up with the bright idea to yuk up sweet potatoes with the gooey things? I know, I know. Most people probably love them.
I found a delicious sounding recipe for Sweet Potato Balls which had no marshmallows or cornflakes (which I also detest). I copied the recipe to my I pad then in a fit of confusion trashed the entire page of recipes for the Christmas menu.
I’ve been able to find all the other recipes except the sweet potato balls. Does anyone have a good recipe that doesn’t use the offensive marshmallows or cornflakes. It doesn’t have to be balls, but it CANNOT contain marshmallows or cornflakes. Kathy Ramsey told me yesterday she is mixing her mashed sweet potatoes with cream cheese and that sounds good, but still want to serve balls for added interest to the buffet table.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
