Tofurky Hickory Smoked Deli Slices Review

I slept in this morning. Breakfast was a welcomed cup of coffee and half an everything bagel with light cream cheese. I stayed up late finishing yesterday's post and reading. I didn't sleep too well, so I was ready for that big cup of coffee. 

I worked around the house today, washing clothes, cleaning my ceiling fan which needed it badly, and several other things I have been putting off or not had time to do. I didn't do nearly as much as I should have done.

I tried out the Hickory Smoked Tofurky Deli Slices today.

I had a huge sandwich made with the hickory smoked slices, white cheddar cheese, spinach, red bell pepper, cucumber slices, a few sliced grape tomatoes, black pepper and mayo on toasted white bread. While I really liked the tofurky, I didn't see a big difference between it and the oven roasted flavor. It has a bit of a smoky flavor, but it's still very similar to the oven roasted. The Peppered flavor would probably be my first choice, but I would eat any of them. The serving size is 5 slices. I usually eat one alone, while I make the sandwich and have the other 4 on bread with all the fixin's. This one get 5 stars just like the others I've had so far.

I also had the last of my soup with rotini, northern beans and spinach. I haven't really figured out what to call it, other than good.

This was a big meal, but I manage all but a couple of bites. It was hard to stop eating.

Later I had another piece of the leftover carrot cake. Luckily Dale ate a huge piece of the chocolate. I had planned to freeze it, but I never did.

For dinner I had leftover Macaroni Salad, fresh veggies, and a few Kalamata olives.

This was a pretty big meal as well, but luckly fresh veggies wilt pretty quick after they are eaten, so I wasn't miserable. I can eat mountains of fresh veggies compared to pasta, bread or anything cooked.

After dinner and while blogging, I watched a movie, Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges, Colin Farrell, & Maggie Gyllenhaal who has beautiful eyes just like her brother Jake. I'd never made the connection between the two until now.  It was a pretty good movie, much better than I expected. I'm giving it 4 stars. 

Now I'm off to bed. Not nearly as late as last night unless I can't break away from the book. Have a great night/day!!!
