We are well into panini planning. I got a book out of the library called "Simple Italian Sandwiches:Recipes from America's Favorite Panini Bar" by Jennifer and Jason Denton. Did you know our nation had a favorite panini bar? Apparently we do and it's called 'ino and it's in New York City. Anyway, there's lots of delicious panini ideas in it and we have assembled ciabatta rolls, chicken breasts, pesto, mozzeralla cheese and portobello mushrooms to prepare for tomorrow night. Yippee!
It's been really warm and springy here so I'm going to make a salad to go with them.
My co-worker Karen is going to come over to celebrate the panini and to watch the fabled makeover episode of America's Next Top Model. It's really the highlight of any cycle of ANTM. One girl will get her hair cut short and cry about looking like a boy. One girl will get long blond extensions and go all diva. One girl will freak out because they want to change her hair color a little tiny bit. And one girl will barely have any change because---she's going home and they can already tell.
But I digress.
On sandwich related topics, I made a sandwich out of leftover frittata today, on multigrain with mayonnaise and lettuce. It was surprisingly delicious. I have Beth's cousin Megan to thank for the inspiration. She told me about eating sandwiches in Spain made from Spanish tortilla on baguettes.
