Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was a regular Christmas dish for 35 years. The first time I removed it from the Christmas menu (because the children never ate it), my daughter Nancy questioned why. When I explained that they never ate it, she said, "But we're supposed to have sweet potatoes at Christmas! Everyone else loves them and they're pretty!"
