Black Friday. A holiday for bargain-hunters, early birds, and those stricken temporarily insane from the incredible savings. Shop 'til you drop (or shop 'til someone dropkicks you for the last iPad /vacuum cleaner/Sing-a-Ma-Jigs).
This year, I'm going to pass on the lines and the crowds of shopping zombies with their deal-crazed eyes. No 4 am doorbuster for me. No, this girl is going to be sleeping in and waking up to a leisurely breakfast. It will be a shocker if I even change out of my PJs while the sun is still shining.
Like you, I'll most definitely have a little tower of Tupperware looming in my fridge. No doubt there will be sweet potatoes in the mix – sweet potato casserole, sweet potato pie, maybe even a baked sweet potato or two. Mash some up (go ahead, include the marshmallows if you must) and combine with the ingredients for your pancakes. Voila! Sweet Potato Pancakes. Your first Thanksgiving leftovers makeover meal of the day is complete.
