Recipe Club - May

Moment of truth... I almost forgot about this post until about 4:00 yesterday afternoon.  I haven't even had my calendar out since last week (hallelujah!) and when I finally did open it up to check out an appointment time for today I remembered and panicked a bit.


At the last minute I decided to share what can barely be considered an actual recipe. It's more of a public service announcement than anything else. 

A couple of summers ago, Sheaffer created the "sandwich of the summer" and I ate at least one a day for about 3 months straight.  I got completely burnt out on it and haven't thought about it since.  But this week I decided to resurrect it and I'm super excited.

Here's all that you'll need.



The "original" sandwich is made on "Orowheat Sandwich Thins", but I couldnt' find those, so I snagged these instead.





 The key to this sandwich if you're packing it for later (like on a morning when you're packing lunches for the pool), is to put the sliced cucumbers inside the turkey so they don't make the bread soggy.  #genius 


Grab a handful of berries and lunch is done!


Like I said, I feel semi-ridiculous even posting this as a recipe, but I think you'll thank me later when you're scrambling for a quick, easy and delicious sandwich.

And since summer is coming, you should probably familiarize yourself with the most delicious (and easiest!) summer dessert of all time.


I'm looking forward to reading through y'alls actual recipes and picking some to try out this week.  I'm determined to try new recipes this summer so hit me with your best stuff :)

  1. I did the same thing! Ate it a few too many times and haven't had it again. Definitely the sandwich of the summer-circa 2011 or 2012?

  17. Yum! Hi so I don't have a blog to link to but have a recipe to share with you. It's my husbands favorite and so easy. It's called Salsa Chicken. Place all ingredients in your crock pot on low for 6 hours: 4 small chicken breasts, one packet taco seasoning, 1 cup salsa ( I use Pace) mixed with one can cream of chicken soup. When done shred chicken and add 1/2 cup sour cream. Add to taco/burrito shell with your favorite toppings. That's it! It's soo good and easy to make. :)

  22. We went out last week and bought the ingredients and this was a WIN for my girls and me!!! Today we did our Monday shopping and put all of these ingredients back on the list. . .and came home and had them again :) And for this mom, that needs to NOT gain a ton this summer, this is a very, very sensible meal. Thank you!!
