This past year, our house has been taken over by superheroes. While on his month-long paternity leave after I had Liam, Ricky started watching all of the movies he’s missed since like…high school. Since we were up all hours of the day, there was plenty of time to catch some movies! Somewhere in the midst, the twins and I started to become obsessed as well.
What I love the most is now the girls are creating all of their OWN superhero items at home. They make masks out of felt, capes from old shirts and write stories about their own heroines fighting evil and saving the world. Their imaginations have run wild!
Since school is officially out, summer vacation means one thing: FOOD. It’s kind of remarkable how much food my 3 girls can eat…and Liam is catching up to them, too. They have superhero sized appetites in pint sized bodies. Maybe that’s their power: emptying out my pantry!
I have to make sure I have lunchtime favorites on hand so they can quickly make their own sandwiches on-the-go. Our fridge is always stocked with grab-and-go snacks like cheese sticks, yogurt, fruit to pair with their lunches.
If you’re like me, waiting in line for the deli is a no-go. I’m usually shopping with a 9-month old and I really don’t have time, but love the taste of fresh sliced deli meat. Smithfield has a solution for us with their new Prime Fresh Deli lunch meats.
Available in favorites like oven-roasted turkey, smoked turkey breast, honey ham and roast beef, you can quickly grab them from the refrigerated meat case. Best part: they’re super affordable and have the same great deli fresh taste you love. Also, if anyone has sensitivities in your home, they are gluten free.
Quick tip: on a prep day, I roast 1-2 racks of Smithfield bacon in the oven. (Umm, best smelling kitchen ever!) To make it extra crispy, I put a cooling rack on top of the cookie sheet so that the heat goes all around the slices of bacon. Roast at 400 for about 20 minutes. You’ll never go back to pan frying your bacon again!
Spicy California Turkey Club
Need a sandwich big enough to feed a superhero? This Spicy California Turkey Club is perfect for that! Smithfield Prime Fresh sliced turkey, crispy bacon and a hint of spice from Sriracha mayo, you cannot miss this sandwich. YUM!
- 2 Tbsp Mayo light or regular variety
- 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce
- 1/2 pound Prime Fresh Deli Smoked Turkey
- 1/2 pound Prime Fresh Deli oven roasted turkey
- 4 slices Smithfield homestyle bacon cooked and crispy
- 1/2 avocado sliced

- optional toppers: sliced cucumber, red onions, tomato slices, lettuce/spinach

To make mayo, combine sriracha and mayo. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes.
Using favorite bread (we like a hearty wheat or Italian loaf), spread sriracha mayo on the bottom slice. Top with cheese. Layer turkey and bacon. On the top slice, spread mashed avocado.
Top with desired veggies. Close sandwich.
Use the amount of Prime Fresh Deli meat desired. This sandwich can feed a crowd, but it's so fun to try!
No matter what kind of bread you choose for this club, it’s ah-mazing. The sriracha mayo gives it a little kick of heat that is perfect with the smoky flavors of bacon and smoked turkey.
