The BEST Leftover Turkey Sandwich

by Melissa Spelts

I love Thanksgiving for the family time, yummy food and fun traditions but my all time favorite are the LEFTOVERS. This sandwich is what my family lives on for a couple days after Thanksgiving. I am always sad when the last of the tasty food is gone. There is a restaurant in Las Vegas called Capriotti’s and they serve this kind of sandwich every day. It is awesome, they call it the Bobbie (delicious). Here is how you can create one at home.

Leftover Rolls ( warmed), turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mayo.

Assemble starting with mayo on the roll and layer as you wish.

Bon appetite!

Donut Turkeys

by Melissa Spelts

Holiday time is so magical for children. Playing with family and friends with the smells of delicious food in the air. This is a fun way to keep the little ones busy while you’re preparing for the big meal.

Donuts – pick your favorites

Candy Eyes (we found these at Walmart in their cake decorating section by the party supplies)

Candy Corn (use white chocolate to stick eyes and candy corn nose on the donut).

Pretzel Sticks dipped in white chocolate to look like feathers.

Let the kids assemble their own.
