What brings you joy?
I bought sweet potatoes 🍠 to bake sweet potato pies. 🥧 I love the process: buying all my ingredients, sitting my butter out to &!waiting for it to soften, cracking eggs, boiling potatoes, mixing all the things up, pouring it into frozen pie crusts...
It’s all a ritual for me. It brings me lots of joy to bake these pies during autumn as my personal and family tradition.
My Granny Newborn was born in Vardaman, MS, known as the “sweet potato capital”! And now that she’s gone, I feel compelled to step up and make ‘em for my close family, friend, & communities. I’ll probably be making pies to the end of time now.
I’ll keep ya posted!
