Happy Thanksgiving!

This year has absolutely flown by! Today is Thanksgiving and I have so many things to be thankful for this year.

Firstly, I’m thankful for all the people in my life who helped lift me up, believed in me and in turned helped me believe in myself, and pushed me to be the best version of myself.

I’m especially thankful for all the new people who’ve entered my life and shaped it in ways I didn’t know were possible. I’ve had incredible experiences with and because of you all and I am truly blessed to have the privilege of having you in my life.

I’m particularly thankful for my new work position. The sheer love, support, fun, and creativity I’ve been allowed to experience here is more than I could’ve hoped for. Knock on wood, but I’m happy to get up for work every morning and happy to bring my cheery ass in and spread positivity. It’s amazing what a supportive environment can do for your mental health.

That said, myself and Bullseye are wishing each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving day!

Pumpkin Patch

I was looking for photos I haven’t posted that I could share and I realized I’ve been hoarding these two from a few weeks ago in my archives. My mom and I usually stop by this mini farmer’s market across the street from Yates Cider Mill when we go. They had pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors and I thought this gourd patch looked neat.

I know it’s officially AFTER Thanksgiving and Halloween and I should be posting like, cute snowflakes pictures, but it’s December 3rd and we still haven’t had a snowfall here in the Metro Detroit Area. And I hope that my mentioning that didn’t just jinx us. I want snow for pictures. But I don’t want it for driving and everything else.

Anyway, enjoy!

TBT: Thanksgiving Leftovers Grilled Cheese

This is the easiest Throwback Thursday all year!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Today I’m throwing it back to a photo I’ve never posted on this blog, but it’s a couple years old at least.

I absolutely love Thanksgiving leftovers for this sole reason: Grilled Brie, Cranberry & Turkey sandwiches. I could probably live off of this stuff for the rest of my life.

It’s made just like any other grilled cheese sandwich. Grab you bread slices, layer up some thin slices of brie, leftover turkey, and cranberry sauce (homemade over here!), top with your second slice of bread, and grilled it up. It’s amazing.

Turkey, Cranberry and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Thanksgiving has come and gone, Black Friday has come to pass…sorta, we all know that shit goes on the whole weekend and shopping doesn’t die down until Februaryish (pardon my French). At any rate, you’ve probably got some Thanksgiving leftovers, am I right? And who doesn’t love them leftover turkey sandwiches?  AM I RIGHT!?

I’ve got the most delicious turkey leftover sandwich you might ever sink your teeth into to share with you all.

You’ll need:
– leftover turkey
– leftover cranberry sauce
– brie cheese
– 2 slices of bread
– your stove and a skillet
– a spatula

Directions:
1. Place 1 slice of bread on your skillet (fire on) and about 1/4 inch slices of brie cheese on top (mine were about an inch wide, so I used 3 slices and lined them up lengthwise)
2. Add the cranberry sauce, try not to put it too close to the edge.
3. Add a layer of shredded turkey pieces and top off with the 2nd slice of bread.
4. Now, GRILL AWAY! Just like a normal grilled cheese sandwich. Use the spatula to add pressure (part of the reason why you don’t want your cranberry sauce too close to the edge to begin with) and flip once the bottom has become golden brown.
5.  Enjoy the most amazing grilled cheese creation you’ll ever eat. Ever.
