Bring on the sweet potatoes and Spiced hot apple cider!

Ok I may be acting a bit prematurely but the weather in Alabama was wonderful today! The temperture is to go down in the low 50's to high 40's tonight.

Right now I am sitting in my sunroom with the windows opened and the breeze has a faint chill to it! Hubby is laughing at me because I have a light blanket around my legs! Its time for Sweet potatoes and a tall cup of hot apple cider. Its fall when you start thinking sweet potatoes and apples. I have a recipe for you to try!
