Serving Your Mashed Sweet Potatoes
I wonder if it’s a Southern ‘thang’ to serve our mashed sweet potatoes in Pyrex bakeware. Have you ever noticed that? I actually enjoy serving in my Pyrex dishes, you know.
Maybe it’s because of the lovely orange color of the sweet potatoes. Maybe we just love our clear Pyrex bakeware so much that we’ll use it as serving dishes too. I know that’s the case for me, anyway.
If I can get my hands on one of my Pyrex baking dishes or casseroles, I definitely use it to serve.
