Pineapple Sweet Potato Casserole Thanksgiving Menu Plan Monday

Thanksgiving week is finally here! Two out of three girls are out of school for the entire week. The youngest will be done on Tuesday. I love the little breaks because we get to see the girls around the house, a tad bit more. How about your kids? Here is a yummy traditional pineapple sweet potato recipe and Thanksgiving Menu plan ideas. Have a great week with your family and friends.

This is a sweet and savory recipe from my side of the family. I do not make it very often but it goes great with turkey or chicken. This is great for Thanksgiving because of the turkey. This is also perfect to make the day after any holiday meal if you have leftover sweet potatoes.
