New Witches and Sweet Potato Ramekins

These little casseroles are perfect for Thanksgiving.  I made individual ones but you could make a single big one if you like.  For these four small ones, I baked 4 sweet potatoes.  Scoop out the potato and mix in 3 T. of butter.  Add some salt and pepper.  Saute 1-1/2 C. of diced kale in a little butter just until it turns bright green then add it to the potato. Add 1 C. of corn.  I used fresh corn cut off the cob.  Mix it all together. Put the potato mixture in your ramekins or casserole and sprinkle the tops with blue cheese and some diced bacon.  Bake them at 350 degrees until the cheese melts and the potatoes are heated through. I can not begin to tell you how good these are.

I did it again....I added to the collection.  This is an old piece put out by Midwest.  It is a cast iron door stop.  In all my years of collecting this is the only one I have ever seen.

This is a really nice Made in Japan candle holder.  This is a first for me too.
