This morning we delivered Christmas meals that the German Township Fire Dept provided for members of the community. Volunteering to deliver meals to people who might not have had a Christmas meal was truly an uplifting experience. I am blessed to have a family that cares for others.
Today our county was put under a Blizzard Warning. We are expecting 6 to 10 inches of snow with high winds. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we get the snow so we can ride our snowmobiles. We never even took them off the trailer last year so we are anxious to ride.
Last night we went to the Christmas Eve service at church then the four of us came home to have our Christmas dinner. We had ham, Miss Polly's perfect potatoes, spiced sweet potatoes, green beans and apple pie. We ate then opened our gifts that we bought for each other. We had a lot of fun last night and this is one of the best Christmas Eves ever.
This is the Spiced Sweet Potatoes that we had for dinner. I love sweet potatoes. The potatoes have a cinnamon glaze on them with melted marshmallows. They are super yummy!
Spiced Sweet Potatoes
2 lbs sweet potatoes
1/2 C brown sugar
3 T margarine
3 T water
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
Peel and cut potatoes. Boil potatoes until tender but firm. Drain potatoes. Place into a greased 9x13 pan. In a sauce pan, melt the brown sugar, margarine, water, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes and cover with marshmallows. Bake in a 350 degree oven until warmed through and marshmallows are slightly brown.
