    Oh, yummy! I have so many food allergies, this would probably send me over the top! Sounds so good, though.
    Actually, your title made me hungry for one of my comfort foods. I have a recipe for biscuits (no wheat, eggs, dairy, sugar, etc) that tastes very good, and I use them for sandwiches. For a quick snack, I spread it with peanut butter (go figure – I’m allergic to all kinds of nuts except peanuts!) and honey. But I’m going to go straight to my kitchen right now and make me a turkey sandwich. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Sadly, we did not have any turkey leftovers this year. My son cooked. I just had to provide the pies. It was a good deal, except for the lack of turkey sandwiches. I am a foodie. I love all the foods you listed here, with a few exceptions in the vegetable category, namely beets and kale.
