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 for St. Patrick’s Day…
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!
