Did you know that November 3rd is National Sandwich Day?  I personally think every day should be sandwich day and I think my kids would agree. Lately due to our move we’ve been eating lots of sandwiches, but my kids don’t seem to mind at all and love helping me make their favorite sandwiches for a quick dinner in a pinch.  With Thanksgiving next week and the fact that we will be loading the last of our boxes and moving out of our house, it’s safe to assume we will be eating a few leftover turkey sandwiches. So, today I’ve got two turkey sandwich recipes for you to use up that leftover turkey.

The kids will love these turkey sandwiches made with Oroweat Sandwich Thins.

Load the sandwich up with leftover turkey.  Slice apples and cheese and trim the edges so they look like feathers.  Place the feathers around the top of the sandwich thin.  Next, add carrot slices for feet and the beak. And finally add some eyes to your leftover turkey sandwich.  Even the kids will love eating leftover turkey…I mean seriously, who can resist this funny little feathered friend.
