I am making a “festival meal” for one of Jan’s Chinese students with a roasted chicken. Mashed potatoes and gravy is a “must” side dish. For Thanksgiving I made these potatoes with turkey gravy, here I am making it with chicken gravy.

I am making a Southern-ish buttermilk roast chicken, this kind of main dish calls for a sweet potato side. I could have done just a simple roast potato, but I decided spice up a mash. The question is, of course, what spices? Today, I chose ginger, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.
Yams go very well with ham. They also cook much more quickly than regular potatoes. This makes them perfect for my time-delayed dinner. We are going out to a movie and I need to do the prep before we go, but have everything pulled together quickly after we get back.
