Sweet Potato Pie for Our New Prez

President Obama.

President Barack Obama.

Mr. President Barack Obama.

It's just fun to say, isn't it?

I was trying to decide what special treat to make today in order to celebrate this momentous occasion when I stumbled across the following video of President Obama, gushing on and on about Sweet Potato Pie:
 

 
That cinched it! I'd never baked a sweet potato pie before (at least not that I can recall), so I started pouring through my cookbooks and found what seems to be the only recipe for vegan sweet potato pie in my possession within the pages of Vegan with a Vengeance. Sweet Potato Pie with Three-Nut Topping, no less. So I got to baking.

I steadfastly resisted the fantastic aroma as the pie cooled and The Boy and I watched President Obama's Inauguration Speech. I've vowed not to get into the pie until The Husband gets home from work, but I'm sure it's going to be fantastic.

Sweet Potato Pie.

President Barack Obama.

Today is a good day, indeed.
