Hi, It's still cold down here, in the 40's at night (well that"s cold for us at least) So I'm thinking about my side dishes for Thanksgiving. One will be Sweet Banana Mash, This recipe was given to me from one of my friends who is a chef at one of Orlando's top restaurants. I made it for the first time last year and it was a big hit the children liked it also. So I think this is a keeper for this year.
