Loaded Turkey Sandwiches
I know, I say that every Friday. But seriously. Friday is a great day, isn't it? The end of the work week (well, for people who don't work weekends, unlike me). A day that begins the much sought-after weekend. And in my case, a day off.
It's snowy and sunny today, so practically perfect to just lounge around the house. Maybe I'll do some cleaning. Maybe I'll do some studying. Or maybe I'll just do nothing. Actually... I've been pretty productive today - looking at wedding venues! Andy and I kind of silently decided that we need to have one booked by March and get this planning underway. We've been procrastinating for too long!
I checked out the website for The Green Building in downtown Louisville and was pretty impressed. It's a somewhat small space (probably couldn't have more than 100 people), but you know... the more I think about it, the more I want an intimate small wedding. Less to plan, more to be extravagant about (like the food!). And speaking of the food, I also contacted 732 Social (which is a restaurant in the Green Building that we LOVE), to see if they could possibly cater! So, while nothing is set in stone... a vision is coming together!
Anyway, I thought I'd end the week with an easy recipe. Everyone knows how to make sandwiches so this really isn't a recipe, but more of just a showcase of the awesome sandwiches we ate the other day! Sometimes easy and quick dinners like these are just what you need!
Fresh homemade bread (I've been using this recipe here, and I LOVE it!)
Cajun turkey slices (for Andy's sandwich)
Maple-glazed chicken slices (for my sandwich)
mayo or miracle whip
slices of mozzarella cheese
I don't have to tell you guys how to make a sandwich. I'm sure you're well-capable of doing that =)
But I did lightly toast the bread (so that the cheese could melt slightly) and sauteed the artichoke in a dry pan for a few minutes (I love warm artichokes!) Then pile your chosen toppings on the bread and close! Serve with some chips and voila! Easy dinner or lunch!
Enjoy the weekend guys!
