a thanksgiving leftover favorite…

Well Thanksgiving is tomorrow so I know if your family is anything like mine, I’ll be up at 4am with my momma putting the turkey in the oven,then cooking all day with a precise time chart to make sure everything is perfectly cooked and served to perfection. But as many of you have probably experienced, this is exhausting, I mean you are literally cooking from 4am to 3 pm for a whole days work to be demolished in an hour. Which leads to my next point, the day after Thanksgiving, Lord help the poor soul who says “whats for lunch?”, oh I’ll tell ya what’s for lunch, you walkin over to the freakin fridge and cook something yourself! Below you will find one of my favorite recipes that might help save one of your family members heads from being ripped off, they’re called funeral sandwiches, now I don’t know why they are called this, I generally take them to my friends and family if someone had surgery, had a baby, maybe if someone died, but all I’m trying to say is they are super easy and if you buy dinner rolls that come in an aluminum baking pan, then you can give them away and don’t have to worry about someone returning your dishes to you, ( a big plus in my book – one of my sisters whom shall remain nameless – always steals my tupperwear ). So i hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving, I know that I am thankful for many things, but I am most thankful for my family, they truly are my heart and soul, my life would be nothing without them. So count your blessings and say your thanks, happy Thanksgiving yall…

from me two you,
