Woo-hoo! I found the recipe for Dr. Pepper Yams, thanks to Yahoo Answers and Cooks.com:
PEPPER SWEET POTATOES
4 med. sweet potatoes
1 c. Dr. Pepper
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
Parboil potatoes in peelings for 10 minutes. Place in cold water; peel, slice crosswise into casserole. Combine Dr. Pepper, sugar, butter, salt, bring to boil, cook 10 minutes. Pour syrup over potatoes and bake at 375 degrees about 45 minutes, basting several times .
Doug Wright extolled the yumminess of this recipe on his KSL radio show this morning, but I never heard him give it over the air. After hunting and googling, I finally asked in Yahoo Answers and received an answer within 1 minute. Yiha! We will be dining with the Rasmussen clan tomorrow, and Rhett being the DP connoisseur that he is, I thought this recipe would be a big hit. Let's hope it turns out!
I also wanted to congratulate myself on the 10th anniversary of my motherhood. Yes, my wee boy turned 10 yesterday. Intellectually, it is hard to believe that much time has passed. Physically, it feels like 20 years have come and gone. (Heh heh) Bless his heart, my boy is a good kid. Here he is proudly displaying his heritage on Halloween.
Above is the back of the shirt. Uncle Kenneth brought it to my attention that the lion is facing the wrong way. Many apologies if you are offended, but the shirt is cool and it has been/will be worn again. So will the kilt. He boldly wore it to school declaring "I have the confidence to do this." Only one ignorant girl from the 6th grade made a dumb comment, to which he responded by making her read the back of his shirt and heading on his way. Way to go, young Braveheart!
