Evolution of a Turkey Sandwich

Let's talk turkey. More specifically, turkey sandwiches which are, in my humble opinion, one the best parts of Thanksgiving. Because, come on ... this IS why we have Thanksgiving, correct? To get to the really yummy part: the post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwich. This sandwich is so important that this poor fella gives up his life for it ....
... dons a hairnet and retreats to the freezer ...
... and gets his ass stuffed and roasted ...
... so that ultimately we may gobble up this lovely, delicious roasted turkey sandwich. I daresay the love for the post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwich has been passed down to me by my dear late Dad, Art Wells. He couldn't get enough of them, in fact, my Mom would roast turkeys all year round so that Dad could have his turkey sang-wiches, he called them. (I have no idea why.) And in his opinion, Fritos were most certainly required with this sang-wich. He thought this was a great combo. "G-R-A-T-E," he used to say. Ah, Dad was one of a kind. Here's to you, Dad ... one turkey sang-wich with Fritos coming right up next Friday.

G-R-A-T-E news! I'm one pound away from my goal! Yep, I've lost 15 pounds and am screamingly pleased! Mike's on the road at the time of this posting but last I checked, he looked G-R-A-T-E at 10 lbs. lost! (And doesn't need to lose more, imho.)

OK, I'm a turkey. Because lately I've been a remiss blogger and a negligent blog reader. So sorry, followers and fellow bloggers. This time of year I become mired in work, holiday shows and panic. (Note to self: no stress-gobbling allowed.) From now until December 31st I will be posting on an irregular basis. But for now I'm wishing you all the most glorious and abundant of Thanksgivings, turkey sang-wich, Fritos and all.

Happy Feast!

Happy Feast to you as well. I'm looking forward to the mashed potatoes and gravy, myself.

Oh ya...I too love the sang-wiches. Gotta put the cranberry sauce on it though. That's a must or it's not a proper post Thanksgiving turkey sang-wich in my opinion. ;)

Congrats! Oh goal, how lovely.

Great memories of your dad...and I'm with you when it comes to being remiss of late (tough time of the semester here)...and I have to tell you that I almost cried when you said I looked thin in my dumb videos, as I've gained 10 lbs since summer, and I'm hating it. You made my negative day a bit more "up," girlie!

And I'm back to say you are a person of immeasurable kindness. I LOVE your comments, honey.

I am so glad you have reached your goal. That tenancity, that stick-to-it-tive-ness is cool. I am also in the weight losing mode but I am letting my new thyroid pills do it for me. I think I have lost 5 lbs.

Thanks for visiting my blog. When I see your address, 128 Sticks of Butter I think of Oprah pulling in that wagon, of bricks was it? A good choice--when you think of 128 sticks of butter, it really helps you visualize it on your gut or butt. Congrats.
