Panini Press Palooza

Ah...it's Sunday. I love Sundays, do you?

A recap of this weekend's events - some shopping at the local food co-op, lunch with family, time with friends. And today? Nothing. I am going to try my best to do nothing but laundry, watch the Olympics, and of course spend some time in the kitchen probably making Lori's homemade granola.

Oh, before I forget. If you didn't get to read my guest post on What Kate Ate, you can still check it out - yummy muffins people! Also, I'm featured on The Naptime Chef, for my red velvet heart shaped cake I baked last week. Check it out!

Friday's lunch was had at Wig & Pen. My first time there and it was delicious! They are known for their pizza, and it was worth it. More specifically, their Flying Tomato pizza. We had that one filled with pepperoni, sausage, sweet green peppers, mushrooms, onions and tomato, of course! Sorry, no pic (totally forgot), but I guess that means if you're ever in Iowa you'll just have to check it out yourself.


Yesterday, before we left to visit some friends, I pulled out the panini press for some sammies! I had gotten this wonderful parmesan cracked black pepper bread at the co-op. Yum!


And lately, I want mustard on everything....so I had to pick up a bottle of Annie's Naturals Horseradish Mustard. I think I could eat this on anything.


So, all together now. Parmesan black pepper bread, smoked chicken breast, tomato, monterrey jack cheese, and horseradish mustard.


It was splendid. Plus a side of buffalo bleu kettle chips. The perfect lunch in my opinion!

Is anyone else in love with their panini press as much as me?

  2. Wow that home made granola looks so good! Everybody's been posting pics of one form of that lately. I def. need to try it - I have a bunch of oats on hand b/c they were buy 1 get 1 free and I got the big tub!

    We don't have a panini press, but 2 Xmases ago we got my parents one for a present. It was funny b/c for a good month after that we were getting calls left and right "I JUST COOKED A HOT DOG ON IT!" or "Your father made these crepe things w/ nutella and they're SO GOOD in the panini press." It made us jealous for a bit that we got it for them and not us!
