Brandied Candied Sweet Potatoes for #SundaySupper

brandied candied sweet potatoes
Merry Christmas everyone!
Christmas is always an emotional time for me. I get very sentimental about loved ones near and far. I miss those who have passed on as well as those that time and circumstances won’t let me be part of their Holidays. They all have a special place in my heart for the holidays and always.
So when this music and movie inspired event came up I know what to pick!
Christmas is the time to say, “I love you!”
Thank you Tammi from Momma’s Meals for hosting this fun event! Thanks to all my Sunday Supper family for their support and love throughout the year!

Take it away, Billy Squier!

So this song inspired my dish for today’s Sunday Supper.
Christmas is the time to say “I love you”
Share the joys of laughter and good cheer
Christmas is the time to say “I love you”
And a feeling that will last all through the year

Just outside the window snow is falling
but here beside the fire we share the glow
of moonlight and brandy, sweet talk and candy
sentiments that everyone should know
Memories of the year that lays behind us
wishes for the year that’s yet to come
and it stands to reason that good friends in season
make you feel that life has just begun
