Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: A Simple Sandwich

A Simple Sandwich


Sometimes dinner just needs to be simple.  As in a panini.  Yesterday morning we had brunch at Mondos, which in turn made me not hungry again until 8pm last night.

French bread stuffed with ham, muenster cheese, tomatoes, mayo and dijon mustard.  Then grilled on the panini press until melty and hot.  This sandwich was HUGE!  Only eating half, I wrapped up the other half for lunch today.


Look at what I got from my mom?  A baker's half sheet with lid, plus a cute little melon baller from the Sweet Basil Market.  Now, this may not seem like a cool gift to some but it was to me!  These sheet pans with lids are great for big pans of bars or even cakes when you need to travel and keep them fresh.  No dealing with plastic wrap!


Here is our attempt at a family picture yesterday.  Ever try that with two kids under the age of two?  No one sits still nor looks at the camera.  This was the best we could do.

Look how long the little misses legs and arms are!  She is just 5 months but in this family no one has a chance of being short.

And finally check out this dessert.  My mom made it and brought it to brunch for a belated birthday "cake".  Recipe is coming.  Put your big girl panties on.


Have a great Monday and start of the week everyone!
