Behold the Turkey

I cooked two holiday meals, including this one, with the four pound turkey “killed with a sharp knife according to Islamic rites.” The sweet potatoes in orange shells, which we actually had the night before, were a big hit. And they were pretty easy to prepare. Just peel and boil about 3 pounds of sweet potatoes, throw them in the food processor and add 1 stick of butter, 3 eggs, 1 cup brown suger, 1 Tablespoon vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, 1/2 cup cream, 1 Tablespoon each of lemon and orange juice and some grated lemon rind. Whip it all up. Cut off the end of about 8 oranges, scoop out the insides and replace with the sweet potato mixture. Bake at 180 C or 350 F for 45 minutes. Fabulous!
