Creepy Gingers

Happy Halloweekend!! Is everyone dressing up? I am so excited to take the kids out. So are they. Well, the captain is. The peanut couldn’t care less. She thinks Halloween is SO lame. Contrarian, that one.

I am just counting down the days until the second to last “Twilight”. You know, in my head, that didn’t sound so pathetic. It’s like when I was 15 waiting for a boy to call. Who are we kidding-you know I called them.

In the meantime, I can’t be the only one obsessed with “American Horror”, right? It just got me from the first damn minute when she sliced his arm with the knife!! I’m pretty sure that I may, in fact, die in there! The young Weaslys completely unrelated ginger twins from that other series of films, are probably plotting a way into my home now, waiting for the right moment to screw up my perfectly stacked glass lockware. A-holes. I plan on re-watching every episode this weekend. (and fast forwarding through some of the weirder, self-love parts)

I also plan on testing at least 6 more Thanksgiving recipes, so be prepared for the onslaught.

In fact, I already have a great, light one, ready for you.

Light and Lovely Sweet Potato Casserole

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, roasted and peeled (may be done up to 3 days prior)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cider
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • zest of one half of an orange
  • 2T honey
  • cereal (I used Golden Goddess by Kashi)

Preheat oven to 350F combine all ingredients in a mixer (except for the cereal) and whip until smooth. Pour into a casserole and line the edges with the cereal. Bake until 165F in the center. YUM.
