Holiday Left-Over Sweet Potato Cake

1 3/4 cups white sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup beer

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking dish. Stir together the sugar and vegetable oil in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and sweet potatoes. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a separate bowl; stir into the batter 1 cup at a time, alternating with the beer just until everything comes together. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting or serving.

In 12-inch skillet, place sandwiches, butter side down. Spread butter over top of each sandwich. Cover; cook over medium-low heat 6 to 8 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.

Thanksgiving Smoothie

1 cups cooked turkey
1 can cranberry sauce
4 tbsp mashed potatoes
1 cup stuffing
4 cups gravy
2 tbsp sweet potato
1 tbsp broccoli casserole (preferably with velveeta)

Put all of that shit in a blender and put it on frappe. Serve in a chilled high ball. Garnish with melted marshmallows. Sit in front of your mother and drink it while she cries.


Turkey and Stuffing Grilled Cheese

2 slices of bread
1 cup leftover turkey meat, chopped
1 cup stuffing
1/4 cup cranberry sauce
2 tbsp cream cheese
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 slices red onion
4 tbsp muenster cheese
1/2 avocado, sliced

Lightly spread mayo on the outside of each slice of bread. Mix the cheese with the stuffing in large chunks and spread on the inside of each slice. Mix the turkey meat with the cream cheese and cranberry sauce, spread on one side and top with sliced avocado, and cover with the other slice of bread. Cook it in a saute pan over medium heat, pressing down with a spatula. When one side is browned, about five minutes, flip over and press down until second side is browned. If you’re a real stoner slob, you can always cook it with an iron on your counter.
