Turkey Leftover Sandwich

Favorites of the Week:

  • TV Show– Grey’s Anatomy. My parents and I used to watch this show all the time, sale but stopped watching last season (not for any real reason…we just forgot to watch it). But we got the past season and have re-fallen in love with the show. At least I have- can’t speak for my dad ;) We are almost caught up now, which will be a shame because then we can’t watch two or three episodes all in a row! My mom and I think Doctor Avery is just dreamy. Don’t you think??? I mean the skin and the green eyes! :)
  • Song– I’m Sexy and I Know It. Haha totally kidding. My sister and I heard this song like 5 times today while in the car. It’s so annoying but funny at the same time. I-I-I-I work out!
  • Food– I’ve baked a bunch this week! I made blackberry cobbler and pumpkin cake. They were both super delicious (recipes to come!)
  • Activity– I went shopping last Saturday by myself and it was really fun! I got a lot of Christmas shopping done and bought a lot of cute Christmas things (some of which I’m planning on using as props for food photos!)

What was the best thing you did/watched/heard/ate this week???

Oh! Happy December! I have many treats, crafts, and all sorts of other fun Christmas things I’ll be sharing!

On to this delicious sandwich! Do you guys have any more leftovers? I know it’s quite a bit after Thanksgiving for me to be sharing this recipe, but if you have leftovers left, you should really make this sandwich!  I made this sandwich a couple days after Thanksgiving. I wasn’t going to blog about it because it’s just a sandwich. I mean how exciting can a sandwich be? Well I sat down with this sandwich, took a bite, and immediately got up to photograph it. This was a tasty sandwich! I used White Mountain bread (whatever that is) and spread on a thin layer of cranberry sauce. I added turkey slices, salt, cheddar cheese, and apple slices. It was the perfect combo between tart, savory, and sweet. I hope you have more leftovers so you can make this! Or keep it in mind for any Christmas leftovers.

Do you like the flower plate action going on here? Like I said, I wasn’t planning on taking photos of this sandwich.

Turkey Leftover Sandwich


Cranberry Sauce
Cheese (I used cheddar)
Thin apple slice


  1. Spread a thin layer of cranberry sauce on a piece of bread. Add pieces of turkey (I sprinkled salt on mine), cheese, and thin apple slices.
  2. Top the bread with another piece of bread and spread butter on the outer side of the top piece.
  3. Place your sandwich in a skillet, butter side down, and cook on medium-low heat. Spread butter on the piece that is now face-up.
  4. Flip when our sandwich with a spatula once the side is golden brown.
  5. Cook your sandwich until it’s browned and the cheese is all melt.


Apple Snack Sandwiches

If it’s not Christmas soon, melanoma I’m going to lose it.

You think I’m kidding.

But I have 2 pieces of not terrible news.

1. Brown Eyed Baker posted about this 30 days of gratitude project and I’m totally going to do it! I was wanting to blog about things I’m thankful for but I just haven’t been consistent since I’ve been busy and such. The idea is to take a picture everyday of something you’re thankful for, and there are suggestions for each day. I’m starting tomorrow so I’ll be doing this into December. But I can still be thankful in December, right? ;)

2. I made these apple snack sandwiches to share with you! I saw them on Live Love Pasta the other day. I thought it was such a neat idea and a super easy snack. I was looking around at Live Love Pasta and there are some great recipes there! I have a ton bookmarked that I want to make soon.

I made these apple sandwiches with peanut butter, raisins, and chocolate chips. I liked the peanut butter and chocolate chip version the best! But the raisins were good, too, and probably healthier…although chocolate is good for the soul! Or so I hear :)

I hope you are all having wonderful weeks and that, even if they’re busy, you’re finding time to relax and be thankful. I am thankful that I have access to fresh food everyday at my house and that I don’t have to worry about going hungry. It’s something we all take for granted, but there are so many people in this world who don’t have food to eat and I need to be better about being thankful that I do.

Apple Snack Sandwiches


1 apple

Peanut Butter (or nutella would be tasty too!)

Chocolate chips or raisins


  1. Slice and apple…umm circle way. Haha you want to cut the top off so you’re making circles. I was able to get 5 circle slices out of my apple but only used 4 of them.
  2. Spread peanut butter on one side of your apple slice.
  3. Sprinkle it with raisins, chocolate chips, or whatever else you want.
  4. Put the other apple slice on top and enjoy!
