Thanksgiving is now in less than 2 weeks! This means a few things…. first, I get to go home and see my wonderful parents in just a few days! I can’t even wait. There is lots of lounging around in pajamas to be done, and I’m ready for it! Second, it’s time to make a giant shopping list and send it over to my folks so they can do all the Thanksgiving prep shopping so I can prepare the big meal the day after I arrive. Third, it’s time to hit the gym super hard this week because well, we all know that Thanksgiving is going to be one carb filled day, served with a gallon or so of gravy. Thank goodness for yoga pants that stretch with my stomach!
Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes at Thanksgiving. Now I’ve always been a little scared of the sweet potatoes and marshmallow side dish, I just can’t wrap my head around it. I think marshmallows belong on s’mores! So as another sweet potato option, I started to make these mashed sweet potatoes that get tossed with a bit of chipotle peppers in adobo to give it a nice smoky background. It’s pretty addictive. Their buttery texture makes these chipotle mashed sweet potatoes an excellent addition to any Thanksgiving table!
