{Easy Hot Sandwiches and A Weekend at Nana's}






I had a hankering for some sausage and potato soup over the weekend and a hot sandwich. Do you like hot sandwiches or prefer cold ones? I like both actually and could eat a sandwich everyday. But, my man eats sandwiches through the week so I try real hard not to fix him sandwiches for a meal. But oh this hot sandwich goes so well with soups.


Simple ingredients so it was easy peasy. I used a large cookie sheet so I used three cans of Crescent rolls, two different kinds of cheese and ham and turkey.


I lined my pan with aluminum foil and lightly sprayed it with Pam. Placed crescent rolls on the pan and just pressed down so all seams  connected good.Nothing fancy as you can see. I just made it work best I could.


Melted some butter in the microwave and I brushed butter on the layer of Crescent rolls. You can use olive oil or whatever you want too.


I placed a slice of ham on top of Crescent rolls, then layered it with two different kinds of cheese in no particular order and then layered the cheese with a slice of turkey. 


Topped it with more Crescent Rolls and pinched all the edges together as best as I could.


I brushed the top layer of Crescent rolls with butter and then sprinkled Italian seasoning on top and just a tad of course sea salt.  At the last minute before baking I sprinkled Parmesan cheese on top. You can't have enough cheese in my book. 


Bake on 350 for 30 minutes. So, so good! 


These sandwiches are light, fluffy and thin. I felt I could actually taste my meat and cheese instead of having so much bread. Goes great with soups. Give them a try.


And...I didn't need all that bread since I needed one of these! LOL! 

This sweet grand girl stayed with me all weekend and she really wanted that ice cream so Nana had to make it happen you know! 


She kept Nana busy for sure. 


We have done a little bit of everything over the weekend. We went shopping, we colored, we done nails. 


We went walking down the dirt road and yes, it was after we ate the ice cream. Ha!


We had a tea party in the grands play room. Who says you can't have a tea party with Gatorade and Yogurt? That's what she wanted so that's what we had!


There isn't much that we didn't do. We watched a couple of movies together and I am trying to teach her the "fine art" of watching Christmas Hallmark movies! HA!!! Well, she hasn't quite got it yet. We stayed too busy to watch too much of anything. 
Which honestly, that's a good thing. I see so much of television, cell phones and Ipads becoming more of the caregiver these days for the kids.


My friend Pam from http://everydayliving.me


had shared about the Blessing Jar book for kids and how she enjoyed it so much with her granddaughter. I knew immediately I too wanted that sweet book to share with my babies. So, I read the Blessing book to Kyleigh, grabbed a jar and out the door we went. She wanted to go on an adventure so an adventure we went. She picked leaves, flowers, sticks, herbs, you name it and she filled the jar.  There are so many things to be "Thankful" for. Can't wait to share this wonderful book with another one of my grandbabies.


And just so you know.....We have matching necklace and bracelet and as she said, "Nana, me and you are the bestest friends! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week. Take a walk outside if you can. Go on an adventure and look at all that God has given you to be thankful for. It's the simple things in life that bring the greatest pleasures. 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Thanks Stacey. Marty eats sandwiches all through the week as he works in conditions that he can't heat up a plate nor just run and go out to eat. So I truly do hate feeding him a sandwich however, this was a good meaty hot sandwich and with sausage and potato soup....YUM!

  11. What a wonderful way to spend your weekend...your grandchildren are SO blessed to have you as their Nana. Wish you could be MY Nana too! May I come do all those fun things with you? Please Please Please? Those sandwiches look REALLY good. Wow. And to have a tea party with your grandgirl, even if it IS gatorade and yogurt...it's the togetherness and the thrill of pouring in cups and enjoying that special time...that's what counts. The Blessing Jar sounds so wonderful. Wish I had a little one to do things with. What a blessing. Thank you for sharing with us. That was so much fun.

  12. Oh Cindy! Is there anything sweeter than a grandgirl telling you that you are bestest friends? I don't think so.
    I always did a lot with my grandkids when they were that age, too. Now that they are older we watch movies together or play games like Scrabble and Sequence.
    Have a wonderful week! xo Diana

  15. Well first of all, that sandwich looks AMAZING. I love a bit of a sammy with my soup as long as it's not too "bready", since soup can fill you up so fast anyway. I need to try that! Your weekend with darling Kyleigh looked like so much fun and I can see why she'd say you guys were bestest friends...you are creating such precious memories that will never be forgotten. I never knew either of my grandmothers so this post really speaks to my heart. Love you, my friend! ♥

    1. We did have fun but her last day with me I finally told her, Nana has to rest a bit! LOL! Oh my grandmother was my heart and I have so many precious memories of her. I am so blessed and thankful for it too. My girls also knew the love of my grandmother, their great-grandmother and Marty's mom, Nanny Conner was a huge part of their life! We have been truly blessed Debby.

  21. You know, for some reason I am excited about putting up Christmas...I love the decor andd the lights, and I love the music. I have always been a hard core don't do till have Thanksgiving but I think I might start on it now. Like you said, what used to take just a tad little time takes forever now. Esp for me, the pain makes me stop and rest while doing it all and I don't do all the rooms like I used to. Like you, just give me my tree, a good movie and my pjs and I am good! First....clean the house....yes, that is a must gotta clean first. haha
