Hey...hope everyone enjoyed your thanksgiving. The holiday's came too fast for me this year. Seems like every year Christmas comes sooner then expected. I for one like to enjoy Thanksgiving and then start decorating for Christmas. I did have a little helper this year, grandson Davin, my little helper, he decorated the "kids tree" in guest room. I love it and will make this a holiday tradition for years to come. Well, with Thanksgiving, comes turkey leftovers. This recipe will definitely change your mind of the traditional "turkey sandwich".
Executive Chef Simon is the owner of Sabor a Pasion Country House and Bistro in Palestine Texas. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Chef Simon for our local Food Column in our town of Frankston. Executive Chef Simon's shared his "mums" family recipe that Chef Simon enjoyed as a child. I would love for you to view his website (below) and see the wonderful restaurant and retreat that is in our beautiful rolling hills of East Texas. Sabor a Pasion is a little "Touch of Heaven". Stunning views, relaxing atmosphere and great gourmet food will capture your attention as you dine overlooking the vineyards. Chef Simon caters for all occasions and he's known to "jump in his plane" and cater to your door. Endless possibilities!
Hope you enjoy! saborapasion.com
