This was an example of inserting a new dish that has become a new favorite: Chipotle Sweet Potato Gratin. Perhaps having found soupy mashed potatoes with mini marshmallows the standard prior, and horrifyingly so, this dish liberated my palate to accept sweet potatoes as not only tolerable but addictive.
Everyone in my household, old and young, cooks for Thanksgiving; by their choice. One of our younger chefs thrust up their hand to make Grasshopper Pie this year. I shuddered at the absence of pecans, pumpkin and mincemeat but there is no denying the lusciousness of this pie so it’s on the menu!
