Thanks to Mentor Mom Donna for hosting this year’s Thanksgiving Potluck for MOPS. This is the third year of our Thanksgiving moms-night-in tradition. It’s known for being a lot of fun and a great opportunity to spend quality time together.
All of the moms brought a Thanksgiving dish to share and we enjoyed an evening of food, fun, and friendship. Special thanks to Lara S. for bringing the turkey.
We’re sharing a few of the recipes and photos here and want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Colleen’s Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Topping
Here’s Colleen’s recipe, straight from her own mother. Spelling out “MOPS” in pecans is totally optional. And a little bit weird. But, if you want to try it, just reserve some pecan halves for your letters.
1 lg can sweet potatoes (drained)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup self-rising flour
1/3 cup butter, melted
- Mix the filling ingredients with a mixer until smooth. Spread it in a casserole dish.
- Stir together the topping ingredients and crumble it over the potato mixture.
- Bake 30-40 min at 350.
