Turkey Sammich

We’re watching the Kansas City Royals tonight play in the World Series! I’m making a Turkey Breast and Homemade Rolls so we can have some yummy sandwiches for dinner!

I’m using a simple half Turkey Breast and roasting it in the oven with some aromatic vegetables…..a cut up Onion, Carrot and Celery (all old and fading in my crisper drawer). It is SO EASY to just roast up a small turkey breast for a great dinner and there’s enough for leftovers for lunch the next day! I am using 2 vintage Pyrex pans, one upside down on top of the other, (like a lid) to keep the Turkey Breast moist while cooking.

These Yummy Rolls are made in my bread machine on the dough cycle. It is a Parker House Roll recipe from the Food Network and one of my favorite chefs, Bobby Flay.

I’m going to spread some Pear and Cranberry Conserve on the sandwich….I hope it tastes good! I made this a few weeks ago and actually processed the conserve in my Pressure Canner.

Today is also New Skylights Day! The new ones are NOT the same as the old ones……so we’ll see how they are.

Pork Pot Pie

Finding some old vegetables in the refrigerator is a perfect time to make up a big pan of Pot Pie! Chicken, Pork, Beef, Turkey….or just Vegetable! Who doesn’t love gravy and vegetables and delicious meat covered with a crust?!

Chop Up the Vegetables in bite size pieces. I used Onion Carrot, Celery, Green Beans, Corn, Yellow Pepper and Potato
I fried 2 pieces of bacon and removed the meat, then quickly browned 1/2 of a Pork Tenderloin, cubed. Remove from Pan when Browned.
Add some Olive Oil and Butter and throw in all the vegetables and saute until they are warmed and starting to color.
Keep stirring until the vegetables begin to brown.
Sprinkle with 1/4 cup flour and keep stirring until the flour and vegetables and butter/olive oil start to get clumpy and thick.
I use some Just Juice Apple Juice and BetterThanBroth Chicken and Vegetable broths for the liquid.
Add about 2 cups of liquid and stir until bubbling and thickened
Cover with a prepared pie crust. Bake at 400* for about 45 minutes.
Let cool a few minutes before serving. I like to serve right from the cast iron in the middle of the table!
