Always time for turkey
Back at Thanksgiving time, I bought an extra turkey while it was on sale. I decided to roast the turkey this weekend, partly out of winter boredom and partly to make more room in the freezer. I used a handy-dandy oven bag to roast up the turkey with little fuss.
My husband carved up the turkey before I had a chance to take pictures. But he immediately knew what he wanted to make with it: hot turkey sandwiches. Every little diner and cafe in Iowa serves hot beef or hot turkey sandwiches. It's the ultimate in economical comfort food -- white bread topped with a mound of mash potatoes, roast turkey or beef and a generous helping of gravy. My husband is excellent at making gravy, and these hot turkey sandwiches turned out amazing. Such a treat on another snowy day.
