Friday

Five On Friday

I'm thrilled for so many reasons this weekend ... a relaxing night tonight at home with those I love, a wedding of a very dear girlfriend tomorrow, and a very fun get-together on Sunday afternoon! Here's my Five on Friday, truly hope you will join along! Remember, if you don't have a blog, you can still tell me your five in the comments section below.

Last night we had supper club at my friend Noelle's house and she made the most amazing soup and sandwiches! The soup was just perfect for this time of year -- it was Cooking Light's white bean and pumpkin bisque (recipe here). The dollop of pesto on top was the crowning jewel. If you are looking for a good seasonal comfort soup, I would highly recommend this one.

So I know I talk a lot about how we get a pizza almost every Friday night. Bear with me one more time, this story is cute. Not only is the pizza from pizza department of our grocery store delicious, but the young girl who works there almost every Friday night is the absolute sweetest! She just adores me and Ian for some reason and always tells us that she just loves how happy we are. When we picked up our pizza last Friday and got it back home, I noticed she had a little artwork on the box for us. How awesome is this girl?!

Thanksgiving is around the corner and I'm geekily excited about next day sandwiches. Nothing beats turkey with Duke's and some salt and pepper on white bread, but this recipe below is going to need to make an appearance at our home this year!

We need to file this away for the day after Thanksgiving!  Roast Turkey Cuban Sandwich - dijon mustard,  cranberry sauce,   roast turkey breast,  swiss cheese, and smoked ham.  It's the cranberry sauce that makes it so good!

Ingredients 
1 bun, sliced in half 
1 tablespoon mayonnaise 
1 teaspoon dijon mustard 
1 tablespoon cranberry sauce 
2 slices roast turkey breast 
2 slices swiss cheese 
2 slices smoked ham 
2 slices dill pickle 

Directions 
Assemble the sandwich and brush the outside with a bit of oil. Grill the sandwich over medium heat until golden brown on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side.

This is the time of year when things just start going at warp speed. Do you agree? Christmas comes earlier and earlier and retailers are just chomping at the bit to get us in their stores. Family tensions can run high and our schedules are just bursting at the seams with commitments. I am vowing this season to focus on the true blessings and leave the stress and the worry and the hurry at the door. I vow to focus on love and thankfulness and fireplaces and hot chocolate and cuddling and dog walks.

Your turkey sandwich sounds so delicious, and just gave me warm and fuzzy memories of Thanksgiving at my Gran's.

Okay - the pizza. I've always wondered about the Teeter pizza but have never picked one up. Is that your go-to? We finally found the BEST pizza in Charlotte. I kid you not. You MUST try Mezzanote pizza. MUST, must, MUST!

That sandwich looks amazing, and if you make the dip I posted it would be GREAT on a sandwich!

Next day sandwiches are the BEST! I could also eat just a bowl of mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Which I have actually done.

Can't wait for you to find out!!!

Lauren said...

that sandwich looks delicious...for a little snack on Thanksgiving evening we always make mini-sandwiches with the leftovers on homemade rolls! I might be more excited about those than I am actual Thanksgiving meal!

And seriously, this time of year FLIES BY! I can't wait to hear if you're going to be buying bows or bowties!
