I did not go AWOL exactly. I got a full-time job working in a High School as an aide for a mental health program. It is awesome but I am doing that on top of being a sign language interpreter and a captionist.
Needless to say, I have a lot on my plate. We all know I like to fill my plate up ;)
I don't have as much time to blog and cook like I used to but I hope to keep it up somewhat.
Yesterday was one of my most favorite days of the year...the first day of fall! I'm so ready for cozy sweaters, crock-pot meals and pumpkin spice lattes!
If anyone else is excited already for Thanksgiving, and just cannot wait, you oughtta try out a Thanksgiving sandwich. I actually made this months ago because I was spontaneously hit and overcome with a craving for a Thanksgiving dinner. That is not so easy to come by in the middle of May so I made this gem.
It tastes like the holidays. Trust me.
1.5 lbs of turkey breast
1/3 cup apple cider
1/3 cup chicken stock
1/2 tablespoon thyme
2 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 box reduced-sodium stuffing
1 can cranberry sauce
Wheat hamburger buns
Combine all of the turkey ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 5-7 hours. Shred with two forks.
Cook stuffing according to box instructions.
Assemble sandwiches by putting desired amount of cranberry sauce on bottom bun, top with shredded turkey. Scoop stuffing on top of the turkey. Put desired amount of mayonnaise on top bun and enjoy!
