Tomorrow’s the big day! It’s turkey time!
Turkey time means turkey leftovers, and in some homes, it means a lot of turkey leftovers. Today’s post is a simple, delicious way to use up some of that bird.
I started by rolling out a sheet of frozen puff pastry that I’d thawed. Once it was rolled to an 11-inch square, I sliced it into 4 equal parts.
I spread some Dijon mustard over the squares and then added some of my leftover turkey breast along with some crisply cooked bacon and sharp cheddar cheese. Read more... (657 words, 9 images, estimated 2:38 mins reading time)
Saturday was a miserably rainy day here. We all woke up early, excited about that morning’s visit to our local Farmers Market and I noticed that the sky looked kind of gross. I checked the weather, and saw what nobody heading to an outdoor market wants to see…the dreaded giant blob of red on the radar screen.
We decided to wait a bit before we left, and it’s a good thing we did because it soon started pouring. Not just heavy rain, but that crazy, torrential, “makes the trees bend” stuff. And it kept raining for most of the day. I think the sun finally peeked through around 7 o’clock that night, just before it headed to bed. Read more...

I use my slow cooker a lot on busy nights during the school year, but I’ve found that it can also be a life saver during the hot, summer months when the last thing you want to do is stand over a hot stove or heat up the whole house with a hot oven. That said, a lot of slow cooker meals are wintery…stews, soups, heavy, heavy, heavy. I’m always on the lookout for something different to try in my Crock Pot, and when I ran across this sandwich recipe, it seemed like it would be light enough make a great summer dinner. Read more...

Warmer weather weekends mean it’s time to fire up the grill! Down here in Georgia, I look for as many opportunities as I can to cook on the grill so I don’t have to heat up my house with the oven. Thankfully, my husband loves to hang out at the grill, and he’s really good at it. I do the prep, he does the grilling, we all enjoy the meal together. It all works out perfectly! Read more...

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t enjoy breakfast for dinner? We try to have breakfast for dinner at least a couple of times a month, and nothing seems to excite my kids more. Even though they can be picky at other meals, they are always solid breakfast eaters. If I can double up on breakfasts during the day, I know they are being well fed!
One of our favorite breakfast-dinners are these quick and easy toasted sandwiches. I love them because they are quick and simple, plus they can be made up earlier in the day and then just baked up at dinner time. The girls love them because, well…they are really good. Read more...

It’s no secret that I love good food. Good food doesn’t have to mean fancy, though. I’m only slightly embarrassed to admit that nothing makes me happier than a really good sandwich. I remember watching Friends years ago, and while everyone was laughing over Joey’s devotion to his favorite sandwich, I felt his pain. I understood. A perfect sandwich is a terrible thing to waste.
I don’t know if I’d go this far, but I’m pretty close!
