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!
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…
Yup, many of you guys guessed right…
We’ll see how they turn out!
Alright, it’s about time to go get ready and let the shenanigans begin. Hope everyone has a great day!
