Ten on Ten

1:00 - Imagine some sort of picture here about me making phone calls or updating Excel spreadsheets.

3:00 - This would be a picture of something super random because it's this point in the day that I run out of "new" pictures to take about my day. 

6:00 - This legitimately should be a picture of our dinner (Ribeye, Rice, Zucchini with Preserved Lemon) but I was so excited to stuff my face the picture slipped my mind. 

I guess 7 out of 10 ain't bad!

Gobble, gobble indeed.

Here's the thing... I've never understood why people get all super stoked about turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving. I think I've always pretended to like them the way other people do as an excuse to eat mayonnaise.
Not joking.

I think lots of my favorite foods are really just excuses to eat condiments.
Don't judge me, Judgey McJudgerson.

Anyway... not to toot my own horn... oh, who am I kidding? I totally made the perfect Leftover Sandwich today.

And I'm willing to share the recipe. Write it down.

1. Buy the biggest turkey you can find (approximately 24 pounds) so everybody has ample leftovers.
2. Brine your turkey.
3. Make the best. turkey. ever. for Thanksgiving dinner.
4. Eat and then subsequently hoard the turkey leftovers for your husband.
5. Make your sandwich:
     Butter the outside of your sandwich bread (or tortilla, as in my case)
     Lay both breads (buttered side down!) into frying pan
     Add some smoked Gouda to both halves of the bread
     Top with slices of cooked sweet potatoes on one side, and turkey leftovers on the other side
     Top the potatoes with jellied cranberry sauce and the meat with two slices of crisp bacon
     Grill until golden, and the cheese is melty.
     Smush sandwich together (or fold in half like a taco...) and enjoy!

Some Thankful Days.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I think I like it for the food first and second for the fact that everybody is there for the same reason: the food. (At least that's how it works in my family...)

I didn't take a ton of pictures, but that didn't make this year any less meaningful. I got to spend some great time in the kitchen with my favorite Baby Lady, Shirley Jean. Got to have some good, quality Retail Therapy with Mama and Sissy. Had breakfast with Mama and Daddo, and got to enjoy some Heart Time with Brother Bear and his Gal.

What more could a girl ask for??

 Turkey before and after. And trust me, you want to make these recipes next year. Dang.

The Hubs sneakin' a little taste-test
