Thanksgiving Leftover Sammies, A Wonderful Vacay!

Happy Sunday aka my last day of T-giving holidays! Yesterday was a great day - we got up early, packed up the car and headed back to Atlanta! We quickly unpacked, showered, put together a couple of recipes and before we knew it Mary & Scott were over - time to head over to Mel & Jon's to watch the Iron Bowl. We thought it was going to be a bit of a blowout, and it kind of was, but it was still fun! We got to see Mel & Jon's little 2-year-old Madison, as well as Terry & Sara's little 3-month old Samantha. The guys made awesome brats and homemade rosemary fries - WOW. Everything was excellent, we had a few drinks, and had a great time catching up with everyone. I didn't take any pics, but DO have Thanksgiving pics and a Thanksgiving recipe!

LOVED. Super creamy due to the mayo blend and cheese, soft and still crispy due to broiling and the cranberries and arugula added a nice twist. This was a yummy way to use our leftovers - it makes me want to keep cooked turkey around! You could easily take this down in calories by using a less caloric roll. This way you could add a side salad to make up those calories. While it was filling, it may be more filling this way.
The inside!
Check out the recipe on Healthified Kitchen! And here's some pics from Thanksgiving - such a great, relaxing week. Still can't believe I haven't been to the office since the 16th!

Austin and baby Dane who seriously makes mornings  awesome!
Dane and his GG - Reuben LOVED little Dane, very curious!
Dane loved Reuben too! He loves dogs - such a sweet boy.
I got to give Dane a few of his bottles - such a good little eater!
Dev fed him too - he's doing great on his new solid foods!
Hanging with the two sweetest boys!
Austin hung with his two boys - his brothers E & Tyler!
Where was Remy? Exploring the WHOLE time - I snapped this pic of her running around in the kitchen!
Michelle set a beautiful T-giving table - all 9 of us were able to eat together!
We ate lots of yummy stuff, including these carrots
and dev's squash bake
and Paul's brussels
Plenty of food to go around!
Q: What was the highlight of your Thanksgiving?! Mine was definitely all of the family fun, relaxing, going through magazines, getting some of my to-dos done, overindulging and just having SUCH a great time off with Austin and the pups.

Q: What are you doing with your leftovers?! Any yummy turkey dishes you're making?!
