The Russian Judo Olympic team may have a new member. It is none other than the Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
Talking with the national team on Friday, he applauded the team’s successes.
Moreover, the Prime Minister has offered his services to help the national judo team's Olympic dream.
“If you need hands-on assistance, you may enter me into the team,” Putin told the team’s coach.
The Russian Prime Minister advocates the development of judo in the country.
Vladimir Putin has a black belt in the martial art and competed at a high level in the USSR.

I picked up peanut butter, hot chocolate with marshmallows, Franks Hot Sauce and sweet potatoes. Now all I need is a recipe for Hot Wings and I will be a happy camper!

Each day he sends us text messages to keep us updated on how things are going. Yesterday he told us that the day started off at -50 and warmed up to -47. Today he wrote to say that it was colder than yesterday but that he was afraid to know exactly what the temp was. Oh, by the way, the locals are telling him that it is not even winter yet.
If you Google "coldest city on earth" Yakutsk pops up... give it a try!

½ cup butter, softened
1 cup fine granulated brown sugar
1 tablespoon sour cream
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 unbaked pie crust
1. Place baked sweet potato in bowl. Add butter, and mix well with mixer. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, sour cream, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust.
2. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like a souffle, and then will sink down as it cools.
white sugar works well too
instead of cinnamon and nutmeg you can substitute 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
This is my favorite Holiday Pie...but, if you don't like sweet potatoes you can substitute them with cooked pumpkin!
Joann, let me know if you try it!!
