Thanksgiving Revisited

I was excited for lunch today! I decided to make mini turkey and brie "sandwiches" on maple cornbread muffins at the suggestion of Megan from Megan's Munchies. I liked these cornbread muffins. They were tasty and low point! For my "sandwiches", I split two of the muffins, spread with 1 tsp. each cranberry sauce, layered 2 thin slices of turkey and 1 oz. light brie. Don't they look so cute?? I loved the way these looked, but I wasn't too thrilled with the combination of flavors. I think the cornbread taste overpowered the turkey and brie, so I didn't taste much of that. I really wanted that turkey and brie flavor to come through. I'll try this again on a more neutral flavored bread and I think it will be great. I love the muffins on their own, toasted with some spray butter and/or preserves. This may be my breakfast tomorrow!

Along with my minis, I had a sliced plum and 1 oz. Kettle Baked Potato Chips (haven't seen these in a while, right?? I'm trying to break my chip obsession!)...

My afternoon snack was wine! The husband and I met an out-of-town friend of his for drinks this afternoon. I had a glass of Shiraz and no "pickies" - pretty good, eh?

Dinner was Thanksgiving revisited. I love heat and eat dinners!!! I had a little of everything again, this time I concentrated more on the veg and plain turkey breast. I had uncooked butternut squash leftover from the "yucky Tyler Florence slaw" (sorry, Tyler), so I just microwaved it for about 5 min. and sprayed with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray. Awesome and easy - I will definitely make that again! I also ate the last two spaghetti squash pancakes from the other night - another winner!

A great dinner, again. Unfortunately, it wasn't filling enough. I ended up wanting to munch about an hour after I ate. I caved and had a large handful of pretzel sticks, a handful of Cheez-its (why are these so good??) and a cheese stick!! Ugh. Maybe I should have just had more wine...:(

Your turkey cornbread sandwiches are so cute! Sorry the turkey was overpowered! I am glad you are loving the muffins on their own. I have been enjoying mine too!

All your other eats looks delicious too!

I get the munchies in the evening quite often too! But overall, great eats for the day - everything looks scrumptious!
