Did you know that Friday, November 26 is "National Leftovers Day",
yes seriously there are American Food Holidays for every day of the year?
When looking for and trying to create a sweet potato recipe for Thanksgiving. We had another failed attempt to create Sweet Mashed Potatoes, that everyone hated. I went to my trusty recipe binder and threw all the other "mashed" sweet potato recipes away. My family just does NOT like them, no matter how I make them. They do however LOVE sweet potatoes if they are cubed or sliced like my Sweet Potato & Apples, but mash them up and forget it. So, I went to throw the whole pan away and I just couldn't, so I put them away in the refrigerator and I am so glad I did. I was reading my newest edition of Food Network the very next day and came across Melissa's Easy Leftovers and found an awesome recipe. I will now be making these Magic Muffins again the day after Thanksgiving with whatever sweet potatoes we have left over (even though I wont make the mashed ones on Thanksgiving whatever recipe I do make, I will just mix up the leftovers in my food processor and make them mashed for this AWESOME recipe).
