Friendsgiving + Sweet Potato Casserole

Yesterday (Nov. 21st) some close friends, Matt and I gathered for a friendsgiving dinner. It was potluck style so everyone signed up to bring a dish (or two). We brought my mom's delicious sweet potato casserole. See below for the recipe.

Everyone has a favorite Thanksgiving recipe. Some enjoy the more savory dishes, others enjoy the desserts. My favorite dish is a cross-between savory and sweet. Below you will find the recipe for sweet potato casserole.
