I’m a lady on a mission. I’m contemplating how to make a homemade sweet potato pie for my boss for the holidays.
I started working for the man fifteen years ago. He is a dream boss. God gave me the desire of my heart when I prayed to be able to work alongside my husband in business and then he gave us a dream boss. Over the years our association with him has been pleasant, fair and rewarding. He has taken us along with other co-workers on wonderful vacations to the Bahamas, Hawaii, Cabo San Lucas, Costa Rica and a Mexican Riviera Cruise.
And all I’m doing to give back is baking him a homemade pie? It’s not just any pie. Dream Boss is from the south. When he grew up in Georgia, he enjoyed Sweet Potato Pie. He talks about it often. He pronounces it “pa”. I heard my husband promise this southern gent a pie on the phone this morning to be delivered by the weekend! So I’ve got a week to find a recipe.
One of these days I’m planning to get together with Jackie from Fresh Oil Today who hails from Georgia and has fond memories, also, of Sweet Potato Pie. Due to her family priorities we can’t meet for a while. Meantime, I’m hunting for the best recipe!
Wish me luck! If you’ve got one, please share!
