Bet you're all wondering exactly what a hot turchicken sandwich is but before we get to that we need to talk about the lesson.
As you all know we call the start of the weekend Pink Mountain Fridays and dinner is usually something of the munchie, casual hand held variety accompanied by a libation of gargatuan proportion. Trouble is this week we managed to enjoy a fair number of Pink Mountain evenings - some weeks are just like that don't you agree.
This week happened to mark the end of the summer break for the Big Guy as classes start on Monday; we also lived through a monsoon storm that darn near ripped the roof off our house and closed one of the main roads to our neck of the woods for 2 full days; the large metropolis to the north of us endured yet another Haboob the third one in a little over a month and the likes of which is more common in the Sahara than in the Arizona desert, and; it was just that kind of a week where any old excuse will do.
What I'm getting at is that I really just wanted to open a bag of chips and call it dinner; however, you know who wouldn't have been very happy with that so I raided the freezer instead. What did I find?
Left over turkey stock from Thanksgiving, chicken tenders from a cheap chicken purchase a few weeks ago, a half bag of frozen cranberries and a loaf of Texas toast. Half an hour later, dinner was ready - an open faced hot chicken sandwich with turkey gravy, cranberry sauce and Stove Top stuffin' thanks to the pantry.
So what's the lesson you ask? Check out the freezer before you decide there's nothing in the house to eat and do not under any circumstances try to eat an open faced sandwich smothered in thick rich gravy without a knife and fork. It get's pretty darn messy.
