Five Spice Sweet Potatoes

This is a simple dish and great for a last minute side. Take a few cooked sweet potatoes and  
mash with some Chinese five spice and a smidge of honey. Instant satisfaction.

If you bake the potatoes in the morning and put them in the refrigerator, there will be little prep work, when you are ready to cook this yummy dish.
