PC® Streusel Topped Sweet Potato Bake

Yesterday we had our annual Friends Giving dinner. What is Friends Giving you ask? It’s exactly what it sounds like, a Thanksgiving dinner with some of our closest friends. While it’s always best to spend the holidays with your family you sometimes find that family isn’t just limited to those that are blood related. Our friends play a huge role in our life, and I honestly couldn’t ask for a better group of people. Some of them have even stepped into roles as Uncles and Aunts to our kids, and to Hazel, these people are truly some of her favourite. Since we haven’t had a family dinner on the holiday Monday the last couple of years we have taken this opportunity to celebrate friendship and spend an evening enjoying some drinks,  yummy food and lots of laughter with great friends. As mentioned in our last post here is a recipe from PC that we made for dinner. It’s so yummy you will think your eating candy instead of sweet potatoes!
