Now that we have a billionaire charter school advocate in the WH to destroy public education, should I use mini-marshmallows in my yams?

Good question, Patrick. Not a fan of marshmallows, but desperate times…I'm considering sprinkling a little Xanax in with the cinnamon and nutmeg in the streusel topping for my sweet potatoes this year.

My question exactly, Patrick...I do a streusel topping,

oops, started distracted, came back to finish below and somehow this earlier fragment appeared (EDITORS: why or why still no EDIT button?)

I wouldn't worry- the universities have been bought and turned into vocational training institutes, so education wasn't going anywhere anyway. And I certainly wouldn't add anything sweet to yams, assuming that the yams are sweet potatoes.

If only Food52 could solve all our problems! I like to go 50/50 with marshmallows and streusel. Every year I argue with my husband that more people will eat the streusel. Every year I am wrong.

Mr. Sauer, Old people should watch their sugar intake. I'm not sure of your age, but you might substitute some healthy orange segments. Happy Thanksgiving!

I feel your pain, Patrick (even in London). Personally, I have never put marshmallows with yams (they're sweet enough) but then I am Irish. Try to forget about politics for the day and eat your yams whatever darned way you want to. Happy Thanksgiving!
