Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Beets

Holy pink deliciousness! These mashed sweet potatoes with beets are amazing. And just LOOK at that color! The cooked green onions on the top really enhance the flavor of the mashed sweet potatoes and beets.

Hubby ate these in his lunch for a couple days. He said some of the guys at work asked him quite a few questions about the pink food… We both really liked these and I can’t wait to make them again.

Don’t forget about my Power of Pink Challenge – make something PINK by the end of the month to raise Breast Cancer Awareness!

    Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
    one and i was just wondering if you get a
    lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it,
    any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.
