Leftover Turkey with Pistachio Pesto and Arugula Sandwich

Leftover Turkey with Pistachio Pesto and Arugula Sandwich

Thank God it’s the weekend. I actually had to work yesterday. All my fault, really. I left no vacation time at all for the Christmas holidays. But that’s OK, because it’s a very quiet time at work during the holidays, so it’s good for catching up on work with no interruptions.

Now if you’re like me, you probably have lots of turkey leftover from Christmas and as much as my dear dog would love for me to give her all the leftovers, I know it’s probably not good for her, though she would stand to argue otherwise if she could talk, so while I left some turkey for her, I also decided to make these yummylicious sandwiches. I got inspired when I was surfing through one of my favorite blogs Damn Delicious, and saw her chicken pesto sandwich. I thought it would be perfect use of some leftover turkey.
