    Peel and slice 10 potatoes. The thinner, the better.

    Layer in huge baking dish: Potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese, potatoes, chopped onions, potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese, potatoes, real parmesan cheese. Drizzle cream over the entire thing. 60 minutes at 400 degrees.

    One of my sisters-in-law made this last year or the year before. Mmmmmmmm.


    3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
    3/4 cup white sugar
    1/3 cup butter, softened
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup milk
    1 cup flaked coconut
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 cup chopped walnuts
    1/3 cup melted butter

    Preheat oven to 350.
    Combine the sweet potatoes with the white sugar, soft butter, beaten eggs, vanilla and milk. Spoon into a two-quart baking dish.
    Combine the coconut, flour, brown sugar, chopped nuts and melted butter. Sprinkle over the top of the sweet potatoes.
    Bake 30-35 minutes.

    I would claim you're dealing with postpartum and hand them a can of cranberry sauce.

    I would never advise any non-professional to even try it. There's a reason why the websites that sell them do so well this time of year.

    I can't believe that you're expected to do this on your own and your mom is bitching about what you're going to bring, but I would be the last person who should ever give anyone advice on how to deal with their parents. :)

    My other dad makes homemade cranberry "sauce" that is soooooo good.

    I HATE the cranberry sauce you get out of a can. Won't touch the stuff. But I will push you into the street in front of an oncoming tractor trailer to get his cranberry sauce.

    Dad's homemade stuffing's damn good. I make an awesome apple cake.

    Oh, Mizzou. I offered. I freaking offered. In fact, I sort of insisted as a way to say thank you for all their help this year.

    I didn't realize mom would call me Jim Gaffigan and reject my menu right off the bat.
