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!

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
