Turkey Club Sandwich

Posted on July 8, 2009

Here is one of my favorite sandwiches –the Turkey Club.  It’s a sandwich on Nutty Bread with avocado, mustard and of course, turkey.  It’s hot here, so I’m very happy to make sandwiches for dinner and not have to spark up the oven, stove or grill.

He sat staring at the hot dog on his plate for a moment, then looked up at me and said, “Mommy, […]
