my favorite Thanksgiving leftover

Friday, Husband and I cooked our family Thanksgiving meal.  We stuck to simple and ended up not even making dessert (gasp.  I'm still surprised at the no dessert thing.)    Husband brined and cooked a turkey and made these FANTASTIC sweet potato rolls that he's been making for about 4 years now.  I made mashed potatoes and green beans with olive oil and garlic and, of course, the canned cranberry sauce (jelled, please.)

We went around the table and said what we were thankful for.  Daughter said, "two big teammates and two little teammates who work together and play together."  I love that she understands that this family is a team who does work together and play together and stick together.

Son was thankful for "HAPPY BIRTHDAY THANKSGIVING."   yes.  :-)

Anyway, to the actual point of the post: my favorite leftover.

a split sweet potato roll with cranberry sauce and turkey.   fantastic.
I told Husband that later this winter we need to pick up a turkey breast and just make a meal out of this Thanksgiving leftover favorite!  It's too good to only have once a year.
