Christmas hugs to you, my friends, and thank you for stopping by to cheer me on a few days ago. I felt overwhelmed, but I found the recipe of my dreams through your encouragement and now I have the perfect Christmas present for my boss. Sassy Granny steered me in the right direction and I not only prepared a delicious Sweet Potato Pie, but it was so easy. Doesn’t it look wonderful? Wish you were here with me. I cherish each and every one of you! I would put on the coffee and tea and serve you pie. Then I would take my little festive book off the shelf, “The Christmas Conversation Piece,” and ask you a question. Let’s see….how about this one: “If you had to give the same gift to everyone on your Christmas list, what would it be?”
Here’s a picture I found of me and the boss at a Christmas party several years ago. I read an article in a women’s magazine that was intriguing. It stated that if you really want to impress the boss, dress like he/she does! So I went to the party in the same fashion as his never-changing style: jeans with a white shirt! I can’t wait to see his face when I give him the pie. I’ve learned that you can take a man out of the south, but you can never take the south out of him. Christmas time is a time of memories and I hope my pie gift will surround him with happy thoughts of family, great southern food and joyful memories of his childhood in Georgia.
I posted this pie on my recipe blog if you are curious, http://manyrecipes371.blogspot.com
