I’ve been planning to make this sandwich ever since I got home from Traverse City, the Cherry Capital of the World (most likely). Last night, however, the biggest flood in recent history hit our region, and I almost couldn’t make it to the grocery store! Our basement flooded knee-deep, and we spent all of last night and all of today pumping out the water, throwing out everything that was wet, and re-organizing everything that was salvageable. I found time to bike to the market, thankfully, so I could put a nice dinner on the table after such a stressful and hectic 24 hours.
Turkey Apple Cherry Jam Sandwich -or- “Jammy Sammy”
- turkey breast (free range), sliced
- tomato, sliced
- green apple (organic), sliced
- red onion, sliced
- cherry preserves
- multigrain bread (from local bakery)
- Slice your fruits and vegetables (I use a mandoline to make life easy!)
- Toast the bread
- Make the jam sandwich!
(What I do next is chop up a heart of romaine, divide it between two lunchbots, add my extra tomato, turkey, apple, and onion slices, and top with dried cherries. Perfect for mine and Grant’s lunch tomorrow.)
After losing so many “valuables” I definitely have a greater appreciation for the invaluables. It’s been very cathartic going through everything, to say the least. Here is a photo I salvaged of me and my dad from July 1995 in Rapid City, MI.
