Keystone Law Firm - November 2018



Thanksgiving is a time to think about what you’re most grateful for in life, including the people who fight for our freedoms. Thanksgiving and Veterans Day take place in November, which makes this month the perfect time to thank a veteran who has served our country.


Spicy, Creamy Sweet Potatoes

It’s important to acknowledge the soldiers who have fought for our liberty, freedom, and justice. Thank a veteran this Thanksgiving — or any day of the year.

The Choice to Serve The people who join the military do so of their own free will. They heeded the call to serve their country and chose to dedicate their lives to a cause — not just for themselves, but for all the citizens of the U.S. Leaving Everything They Know Behind These individuals have families, hobbies, friends, and jobs they choose to leave behind. They had the strength to leave familiar comforts and adjust to a new world — all to provide protection for our country. Understanding Our Soldiers Recruits undergo mentally and physically demanding training to prepare themselves for live combat. Civilians can never truly grasp what our brave soldiers have experienced or comprehend the scars they can carry for years after their service is over. Those Who Never Make It Home Our soldiers leave their homes knowing the dangers they will face. All service members experience loss to some degree, and many experience loss when a friend or loved one dies in combat. The casualties are not only felt by those in combat, but also by the family members who never get the chance to welcome their soldier back home. At Keystone Law Firm, we have helped veterans with their estate plans in the past, so we know how important it is to thank our military. If you have a soldier or veteran in your family, or if you happen to see a uniform on the street, don’t hesitate to approach them and thank them for their service.

Sweet potatoes are a Thanksgiving staple, but they’re often the blandest thing on the table. Luckily that’s not the case with this recipe, which features Thai spices and coconut milk.


• 5 pounds sweet potatoes • 1 cup canned coconut milk • 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste

• 1/2 cup dark brown sugar • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter • 1 tablespoon kosher salt


1. Heat oven to 375 F. On a large sheet pan, bake potatoes until very soft, approximately 75 minutes. 2. Let potatoes cool until they are safe to handle, then peel and mash. 3. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine coconut milk and curry paste. Once mixed, add the mixture, salt, half the sugar, and half the butter to potatoes. 4. 30 minutes before serving, heat oven to 425 F. Spread potatoes in a baking dish, cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes. 5. Uncover potatoes and dot with remaining butter and sugar. Broil until brown, crusty, and delicious. Serve hot.

From all of us to all our veterans and serving members, thank you!
