Monday Recipe * Yam Casserole

Today we are in Opealousa ,Louisiana visiting. In honor of the Yam festival that was held every October when I was growing up I am sharing a local   holiday recipe :   Yam Casserole

That sweet, orange-colored root vegetable that you love so dearly is actually a sweet potato. Yes, all so-called “yams” are in fact sweet potatoes. Most people think that long, red-skinned sweet potatoes are yams, but they really are just one of many varieties of sweet potatoes.
