Father’s Day Triple Turkey Hero Sandwich
Who doesn’t love a hero? I was never a fan of the heroes in the comic strips. Personally I was fonder of heroes like Leroy Green in The Last Dragon and Joe Clark in Lean on Me. The heroes in those movies convinced me that a hero flexed muscles and made people tremble with fear. Nowadays my definition of a hero has changed. I didn’t realize how much of a hero my daddy was until I had my first child. My daddy is a man who is short on hugs and conversation. Growing up he said I love you by helping my mama create a stable home and rearing up like an agitated lion whenever boys came around. Nothing that seemed to come close to taking on a villain or making someone tremble at the sound of your name. But then one day I begin to realize that heroic moments in real time look different then how they are packaged in the movies. More importantly I began to see my daddy as a hero, especially when:
- I was a single mama and my car gave out at a stoplight in the middle of July heat with my oldest, who at the time who was two, in the backseat. My daddy arrived to give us his car and wait there until the tow truck arrived.
- I was a single mama and I woke up on Saturday mornings and saw that my daddy had sent over Mr. Myers to cut my grass.
- The hubby was at work, my car was trapped in the garage and he arrived in minutes to take the kiddos to school.
Cut bread in half and dish out some bread. Apply mayonnaise and mustard. Add cheese to one side and turkey slices to the other. Add lettuce, tomato and bacon. Sprinkle oregano, salt, pepper and vinegar.
Have a wonderful weekend with the family!!
