The other night for dinner, we made open face turkey sandwiches, with mashed-potato pancakes.
Okay...it's not very photogenic, and there is nothing fancy about open-faced sandwiches...but it's special because it was the first time we have used any of the turkey I canned at home. And yeah...I'm always a little bit nervous the first time we open a new type of 'something' we canned at home...and more nervous when it's a pressure canned protein than a water bath canned jam or pickle.
By the way, the Sam Adams Summer Ale is easy to recommend. There is something about the flagship Sam Adams Boston Lager that pleases me not...but on a hot day, their summer ale is right up there with Summer Shandy as a refreshing adult beverage.
