Turkey Sliders

So every time Brandon and I venture to Jackson, we make this huge deal discussing where we are going to have lunch.  And every time, we end up at Kiefers. 

Mediterranean-esq joints are probably my favorite, I am such a fan of baba ganoush.  I'm also a fan of the slider, ground turkey, and pita bread.  All of these forces combined are probably the reason that I give last night's supper two thumbs up, way up. 

The above picture was snapped just moments ago as I put my lunch into the work fridge.  I forgot to take one last night; by the time the sliders were done I was famished and took to eating them standing up in the kitchen.  I agree that the picture is kind of creepy looking but I thought it might be helpful to see a pic of the little dears.
