Sweet Potato Pumpkin

Emma loves sweet potatoes, except she doesn't call them sweet potatoes, she calls them pumpkin. Heaven forbid you should say we are having sweet potatoes for dinner, cries of anguish are heard throughout the house. It must be pumpkin, and it must have warshmellows.

During Halloween, she brought home several pumkins from various festivites and demanded that I make "pumpkin" for dinner.

This is how it goes down, peel and slice about three large sweet potatoes, boil them for about 10-15 minutes, puree them into a mush with a little cinnamon and brown sugar, place them in pie dish, top with warshmellows then in a 350 oven for about 10 more minutes. Save "real" pumkin for pie.
