Meatless Monday: Paninis

Things are extra Merry!, Merry! yet, busy, busy, here in Sweet Peaville. G and I are preparing the snacks for R's school party later this afternoon...then a weekend full of merriment and celebrating. I am feeling a bit stretched, and I am guessing you are too!

So for Monday's Meatless Healthy Eating Challenge, I am keeping it super easy.

One word: paninis.

If you don't have a homemade panini maker, don't sweat it--I don't have one either. To make ours I use our grill pan and a heavy pan on top to smoosh it (yes, a technical culinary term!).

If you don't have a grill pan, any ole' skillet will work, it just won't have those tell-tale panini lines on the bread. No worries, it still will taste fantastic!

The description for some panini ideas can be found here. Of course, for Monday, we will be omitting the bacon and/or Proscuitto. Again, no worries, since the real star of any panini is the cheese!

Grocery list:

Good bread--we like sourdough or Italian

(or whatever you want in your sandwich)

Sharp Cheddar Cheese or any other cheese you wish!

Hope your weekend is Merry and Bright,
