Date Night Recipe // Hot Leftover Sandwiches

Written with love, by Sarah-Elizabeth Stone

New Years is a lot of pressure. Pressure to find the kiss, or engagement. Pressure to host an amazing party, or attend in a fabulous dress. Make that New Years resolution and keep it, at least until people forgot what it was in the first place. Eat right, fit into the dress, smile big for pictures and set the tone for the entire year going forward.

But you know what? 2016 is just a new number on the end of an ongoing adventure. An opportunity to keep building and looking forward to many more blessings in the future. People stock far too much value into a day that should be more of a reminder to take in each moment, because time is so very fleeting. So whatever magical, or disastrous way you rang in the New Year, remember; you wake up to a new number every day anyways, so make that the one that counts. 

This one is super easy, and all you need is everything left in your fridge after the holidays!
