The Coffee Cache Fruity Gobbler

My favorite T-day leftover sammich. Perfect for watching Rivalry Weekend college football games.

Adapted from Kerlin's Coffee Cache's lunch menu, circa 1997.

Cream cheese
Cranberry chutney
Sunflower seeds
Left-over turkey, roughly chopped
Greens of any sort
Optional: a wee bit of stuffing

Safe travels and happy holidays.

PS. Since lots of folks are already putting up their holiday lights, here's a reminder how to really do your lights.

Goethe's final words: "More light." Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that's been our unifying cry: "More light." Sunlight. Torchlight. Candlight. Neon. Incandescent. Lights that banish the darkness from our caves, to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators. Big floods for the night games at Soldier's field. Little tiny flashlight for those books we read under the covers when we're supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles. Light is metaphor. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Lead, Kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom Lead Thou me on! The night is dark, and I am far from home- Lead Thou me on! Arise, shine, for thy light has come. Light is knowledge. Light is life. Light is light.

I doubt we will be able to get as many lights up, but we already started,too. Great video!

Mmmm, leftovers are almost better than the meal itself. ;) Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We're entering day 2 of leftovers. I'm loving it and this sandwich sounds great too. Wish I had some sunflower seeds!


THAT...sounds awesome! Loving the idea of cream cheese and cranberries on bread!

I liked all your words about light! Thanks. This is a great sammie to eat, but I left all the turkey in Boston where I was visiting, that is the downside of eating at others- no leftovers:-(
I see you are the only one to pick up that the Red Ryder is REALLY there just guarding my chocolate stash!! Have a great week!

I wish there was a radio station like KBHR.

I always found Chris in the Morning inspiring.

Northern Exposure had some of the best music for a TV show. If you're shopping to buy the Northern Exposure Seasons on DVD, avoid the later seasons. For some reason, on those discs they couldn't secure all the music rights, so the great music played in the background at The Brick is replaced with canned music. This changes everything. It's all about the atmosphere.

I'm still pondering your comment about bay leaf:

'i find myself questioning the bay leaf. thinking we're all pawns of the global bay leaf cartels. have you ever made a dish, served it friends, and had someone say, "hmmmm, needs more bay leaf"?'

I need to think about this, but look for my feeble musing to appear on my blog soon.

Coincidentally, the Anchorage NPR station sounded a lot like KBHR. I'm guessing it was a small market that couldn't afford to buy all of the programming, so NPR was a couple of hours of news in the morning, followed by 8 hours of indie music, then a little news right before dinner time. Used to be, at least, back in the mid '90s.
