Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . March 01, 2010

Outside my window... gray skies, nothin' but gray skies - quite cool here this week

I am thinking... of how glad I am that spring is coming!

I am thankful for...a day off to do as I please

From the learning rooms...beginning piano lessons

From the kitchen... chocolate chip cinnamon rolls, marmelade rolls, 15-bean soup and cornbread

I am wearing... black knit skirt, socks and tennies, t-shirt and gray hoodie

I am creating... a clean storage room

I am going... to Ladies' Retreat in April

I am reading...Borrower of the Night by Elizabeth Peters

I am hoping... to get everything done today!

I am hearing...the fan on my little ceramic heater givin' me some love!

Around the house...clean bathroom, sweep and mop kitchen

One of my favorite things... is my new hours at work - 7 AM to 3:30 PM!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Not a lot as I will be working and training - it really drains me

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Homemade candied rose petals - I can't wait for my roses to start blooming again!

Hot Turkey and Mushroom Subs

These are a quick fix and my guys just love them. They are patterned after a "Dive" sub.

Turkey lunchmeat - I prefer the oven-roasted variety for this
Sub buns - I use uncut ones
Fresh mushrooms
Seasoning to taste - I use Morton's Nature's Seasoning
Sharp Cheddar cheese
Heavy cream

Cut a v in the top of the sub buns, then pinch insides out, leaving about a 1/2 inch shell. Lay turkey in bun. Saute mushrooms in butter - however many you want - and season to taste. Spoon on top of turkey. In a small saucepan, cube about 3 oz. of cheese and then pour over top about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of cream. Heat gently and stir until cheese is melted. Pour cheese sauce over mushrooms. Put "lids" back on top of buns and wrap in foil. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!

You can add whatever else you like, but my guys prefer these as is. In place of cheese sauce, I suppose you could use turkey gravy - mmmmmm!
