Thankfulness and Potatoes

"O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!" (Psalm 34:8)
Happy Thanksgiving. What a wonderful holiday filled with feasting and family and gratefulness for the abundance of good gifts from our Father in Heaven. (See James 1:17 :))
Among many, many other blessings, I am thankful for my mom's awesome cranberries (two kinds!), my friend Pam's make-ahead gravy (love that gravy), and, of course, pecan fudge pie (recipe, pg. 255, Queen of the Castle).

If you have extra mashed potatoes lurking in your fridge (see this post for a shining example), you will be overjoyed to learn of this recipe: chocolate-coconut potato candy.


You might also want to look into these delicious, light as air potato rolls.
Now go. Eat. Be filled with thankfulness.
And if you get a chance to go see the movie The Blind Side? Go do it. Awesome.

Potato candy and potato rolls...Does it get any better? I think not :-) Both look delicious.
Hope you and your family enjoyed Thanksgiving.

P.S. All the eggs have been used ( 192 eggs! ).

The potato candy is really wonderful, Teresa. I highly recommend it if you're a chocolate lover. ;) (and we are)
