Scalloped sweet potatoes 

Hello friends!  Thank you for joining me this week for National Eating Disorder Awareness week!  It holds a special place in my heart as it has been something that has affected my life very deeply.  In case you missed the other posts, you can check them out here, here and here 🙂
As we head towards the first weekend in March I have been thinking about heritage.  Since my husband is part Irish, it is fun to think about different Irish traditions.  When I lived in Chicago it was fun to see the river turn green and participate in some fun Irish themed races!  Along with fun traditions are fun foods!  With some of the health testing I have coming up, my food has been pretty limited.  I got a little creative in the kitchen and made a slightly different version to the traditional Irish scalloped potatoes!

Since I have an abundance of sweet potatoes, they were my inspiration!
