Sweet Potato Casserole in the Crock Pot

My coworker found this recipe. It is delicious and easy to just throw in the crockpot and not worry about it! It called for pecans, but I didn't use them. Also my topping was pretty thick and didn't spread as nicely as the pictures on the original recipe, but it still tasted good!

What You Need:
2 29 oz cans of sweet potatoes, drained
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tbsp white sugar
pinch of salt
2.5 tbsp brown sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk

2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter melted

What You Do:
Spray the crock pot with non-stick spray
Put the sweet potatoes, butter, sugar and salt in the crock pot. 
Pour in the eggs, milk and vanilla. 
Beat until smooth. 
Smooth the mixture with a spatula
In a small bowl, stir together the topping ingredients. 
Spread the topping evenly over the sweet potatoes. 
Cover the crockpot and cook on high for 2.5 - 4 hours. 

Cruise Day 6 & 7 - Cozumel, Mexico + cruising home

Our last stop was in Cozumel, Mexico. We got off the ship at the port without any real plan. We got a pamphlet that had a coupon it in for a day at an All-Inclusive Resort. It was all you can eat and drink on a beach (there was a pool too) and you could go kayaking or snorkeling (although we were lazy and did neither, but it was a pretty windy day for that). The resort was gorgeous and our waiter kept bringing us drink after drink. 

We spent most of our day on this bed thing over the water. 

In between each group of beds there were steps down into the water. 

It was a gorgeous day, a little windy though. It was so nice to just lounge around. This was such a relaxing trip. I finished my book while we laid around on Friday. 

We had lunch at the seafood shack on the beach. 

Saturday was at sea as we cruised back to Florida. We lounged by the pool and went to see the show that night which was a musical compilation of a lot of fairy tales. 

We finished off the week with tons of desserts!

Sunday :( Time to get off the  boat and head home. They changed the day of the week in the elevators each day, just in case you lose track of what day it is

Cruise Day 5 - Georgetown, Grand Caymen

On Thursday morning we finally got up early enough to see the sunrise!

We didn't have anything planned for the day in Grand Caymen, so we took advantage of a spa deal and got massages that morning before getting off the ship for the day. 

In Grand Caymen the ship does not dock, instead you have to take tender boats to get to the island. It wasn't bad, but you have to wait in a bit of a line, it isn't as quick as just being able to walk on and off the ship. 

We had heard that 7 mile beach was a nice place to spend the day and it was only about a mile or so away so we decided to walk and check out the sights along the way. We stopped for a drink and a gorgeous view. 

Grand Caymen is very pretty (and safe, which is why we didn't mind walking). We quickly decided that it would be a great place to vacation, but it is not cheap! 

7 mile beach!

The water was gorgeous 

We walked along the beach for a while until we came across a pretty popular area, which turns out to be where the taxis drop people off (if we had decided to taxi instead of walk). There was a restaurant/bar where we had lunch before heading back to the ship. 

Delicious local beer

Notice that says 5 beers for $28.75 as the special. Yikes.

We did a little shopping before getting back on the ship!

Dinner on Thursday was lobster! Ah-maz-ing
