Hot Turkey Sandwiches: The Greatest Gift of All

Today was a big day. We woke up at the crack of 9:00AM to tackle a day of no shopping whatsoever. After a busy morning of drinking tea and coffee and doing little else it was time to have lunch!

Using our leftovers from yesterday's meal Jen made a salad with roasted vegetables and I made these annoyingly trendy turkey sliders with some arugula, stuffing, gravy, and a little mayonnaise on the rolls from last night.

It was a pretty big day. We watched the Bruins destroy the Islanders. We went for a walk up to 181st Street. We took a nap. Woke up to watch A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All. We lounged a bit. Then it was time for dinner. Dinner, of course, was hot turkey sandwiches with some oven roasted fries.

We had some leftover chestnuts so I made a roasted chestnut ice cream. It came out pretty good and was an excellent accompaniment to some leftover pumpkin pie.

Now we're settling down to what may be the best four hours of television possible on the day after Thanksgiving: Elf, followed by the Monk Christmas special, followed by the Psych Christmas special. A little mulled cider with Maker's Mark will accompany this fine programming quite nicely.

Life doesn't get much better than this.
