Thanksgiving Cat Blogging

This is Inkblot last night, helping to supervise Thanksgiving preparations. That’s a big ol’ pot of boiling sweet potatoes he’s interested in—or thinks he is, anyway, since he’d probably recoil in carnivorous disgust if real-life tubers ever showed up on his dinner plate. Still, a cat can dream, and really, you never know what’s in a pot until you’ve thoroughly checked it out, do you? It might have been turkey stew or something.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Enjoy the day and forget about politics. And if you’re wondering what those boiling tubers are for, the answer is Praline Sweet Potatoes, an ancient family recipe originally from the LA Times. I don’t care for sweet potatoes myself, but it seems to be pretty popular with everyone else. The recipe is below. Enjoy!

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
