Cinnamon & Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Cinnamon & Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes Header
I don’t know about you, but now that the holidays are over, my body is craving vegetables big time.  I realized that over the past few weeks I wasn’t getting the foods I was used to, and while I got to indulge in some of my favorites, like cherry pie squares, green bean casserole, and champagne, I really missed some of my everyday staples.  

Last night for dinner, my boy and I baked chicken breast stuffed with spinach and gruyere cheese, steamed broccoli, sauteed green beans, and to add a little color, mashed sweet potatoes.   Like most people, I’m a sucker for mashed potatoes, but sweet potatoes taste just as creamy and they’re packed with potassium, fiber, and vitamin E.
