Why? Tom turkey sandwiches. It is my favorite sandwich, hands down. And this year, because I am pregnant, I haven't had a stitch of lunchmeat in over three months. I can't wait to sink my teeth into my favorite sammie! I'm gonna eat a tom turkey, sip a virgin mary and just love life.
I am so stoked on my favorite sandwich that we make our own turkey despite going to a fully stocked Thanksgiving meal at my mom's house. Actually, this duty falls to my husband who goes to a friend's house where they deep fry turkeys together. It's great because I relax and then a turkey magically appears on my doorstep, cooked a delicious and ready to be eaten! That's bliss, right?
Anyway, I wanted to put this out there nice and early so that you guys can prepare for the Tom Turkey extravaganza.
Here's some lovely leftover turkey. Heeeelllllllooooo.
Then I made a box of Stove Top. That's right--no frills ladies and 'gents, just all goodness.
The no frills continues with a lovely can of jellied cranberry! I don't normally buy things in cans, but for these sandwiches, I will make an exception.
Slather mayo on some bread (I like mine soft, my husband likes his toasted) and then stack it all up:
Turkey, stuffing, cranberry!
Doesn't that look perfect? Let's get closer, shall we?
Yes, that's right where I wanna be: in the thick of the sandwich!
Nom nom nom!

Slather your bread with a healthy helping of mayonnaise. Stack the turkey, two slices of cranberry jelly and a big old helping of stuffing on a slice of bread.
