It’s November. This means it’s time to cut back on our national pumpkin obsession, and time to talk turkey. Thanksgiving is a mere 3 weeks away- a holiday that's original purpose was for the first Pilgrim settlers to thank the Native Americans who taught them how to hunt, farm, and basically survive when they landed in North America. It has now mostly become a holiday during which we are thankful as a nation for pants with stretchy elastic waistbands, or as I like to call them: relaxation trousers.
Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce….mmmmm….just a few things that we look forward to for a traditional Thanksgiving Feast. At the Lake Effect Diner you can enjoy delicious Turkey With All The Fixin’s (House Smoked Turkey, Savory Stuffing, and Cranberry Sauce) off the main menu every day, but let’s be honest, as great as this famous holiday meal is, one of best thing about the excessive spread is what to make from the leftovers! Which is why the November Sandwich Special is such a fan favorite.
Come in to the Lake Effect Diner where you don’t have to slave away and cook a whole turkey dinner to enjoy turning one night's feast into the next day’s culinary creation. The November Sandwich features thinly sliced house smoked turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and cranberry mayo all piled high on a fresh homemade baguette griddled in garlic butter until crispy and served with fresh cut fries. For the full “day after Thanksgiving” experience, I usually substitute mashed potatoes with gravy for the fries and pile some of those bad boys on there as well.
So get on your relaxation trousers, pencil in a nap for later, and head to Lake Effect Diner for a slice of turkey heaven, because once November is gone- so is this indulgent treat.
