Jell-O Shots for St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Where are all my fellow Irish men and women out there today?

So yesterday morning when I stopped at the grocery store, I ended up with a HUGE hankering for a reuben sandwich. Knowing that I had to work until about 6:00pm last night (great shift, by the way…even had a blog reader take my class! Hey Emily!) I figured a quick, easy dinner at home would be ideal.

Enter, my Turkey Reuben.

I went with turkey reubens, since Jay is not a huge fan of corned beef, but I was shocked that I was still able to get him to eat the sauerkraut. Victory!

To make our reubens, I bought a small loaf of marbled rye, spread each slice with some homemade Russian dressing, two slices of Swiss cheese, a few slices of low-sodium turkey, and sauerkraut. I then sprayed the outside with a little spray butter and let them grill up to perfection.

Not only did they taste like restaurant quality, but I loved knowing that they didn’t have nearly the amount of fat and calories as one from a restaurant. Another victory!

On the side, I served some Alexia Sweet Potato Fries which I got a coupon for to try out through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program.

I usually just make my own fries, but I will admit that these tasted delicious and I really loved just being able to grab them straight from the bag. They’re definitely ideal for when you’re pressed for time.

*edited to fix all of my spelling errors on “reuben.” Woops, my bad!

After dinner, Jay and I got to work on a few things to get ready for today’s St. Patty’s Day celebrations…

I put together a batch of my Overnight French Toast.

And Jay mixed up some festive green Jell-o shots for St. Patrick’s Day…

    Wow I bet any kind of sandwich which includes marble rye would be out of this world- never even seen this kind of bread! After making about 100 jello shots for a Diwali party 2 years ago, I must say I am quite the pro! Have a great day! :)

    i’ve never been one to love reuban sandwiches, but my mom ordered one when we were out to lunch a few weeks ago, and i ended up loving it! i think it was always one of those things that i thought i wouldn’t like, so i never really tried it for myself. your version sounds great, and now i’m thinking a reuban sandwich might have to be in order for lunch today! ;)

    So the hubby and I were thinking about going out last night and decided to stay in and make our own dinner & im glad we did- we had steak, chicken, sweet potatoe fries and salad- It was way better than a restaurant meal!

    Have a great day Courtney!
