Student often ask me if I cook for my family like I cook at class. Well, yes! It's funny, because after 2-3 days of back to back classes, my husband Adrian will say "Are you sure you want to cook? Wouldn't you rather go out to dinner and take a break?". But, no -- I love cooking for my family! I find being in the kitchen so relaxing and peaceful. I am in the there every day and I wouldn't have it any other way.
This Tuesday night dinner was inspired by my upcoming November Workshop: Thanksgiving. I love having a couple of go-to recipes for my leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I may have outdone myself with this one -- it was to die for. My kids LOVED it!
I started with buttered, grilled ciabatta bread. Layered it with roasted turkey that I had brined and herbed, homemade slaw, swiss cheese, and a pickle. Thankfully, I was able to grab the last of my fresh herbs before the first Nebraska freeze!
And voila! This recipe may be featured in my November workshop...hint hint, nudge nudge.
Cheers! XOXO Paula
