Hope it was a good one!
I'm SO EXCITED!!!
I must tell you about my new
PANINI MAKER GRILL THING.
It looks like a crab here,
making it's way across my kitchen counter,
but in actuality it is a stationery electrical appliance.
See, it won't hurt you.
But it will make you LOVE sandwiches better.
At least it did me.
"GIVE ME YOUR CRAPPY, BORING SANDWICH AND I WILL MAKE IT EXCITING"
is what it is saying.
so I took the bait and ponied up two slices of boring Wonder 100% whole wheat bread.
I slapped some deli sliced turkey on the bread.
*Sheez, can someone wake me up when this boring blog post is over?!?!?!*
OH MY GOSH, I CAN'T STAND IT...Pepper jack cheese????
Well, NOW things are really hoppin'!!
Throw the other slice of bread on top and you have...ahhh...hmmm....
well, uh, yeah, a boring old turkey and cheese sandwich.
*What? Is it like midnight or something, cuz I'm dying of boredom of my own words and pictures here.*
Hold the presses!
What is this? Pam Olive Oil spray?
What do I do with this?
Why is this important to this blog post? Much less this sandwich?
You want me to spray both sides of the sandwich with Pam cooking spray?
Whatever good can become of spraying bread with olive oil? I'm confused! That's just WEIRD!!!
placed the sandwich on the panini press.
And closed the lid.
hang in there please.....
A non-boring, warm,
turkey and pepper jack cheese extraordinaire sandwich!
On a really messy, crumb-filled plate no less!
Dear Mr. Boring Turkey Sandwich,
You don't look boring at all now.
In fact, you look even better up close....my stomach is gurgling noises, saying feed me, feed me.
The panini press is easy to clean...
I know this is not clean yet, I took the picture immediately after taking the sandwich off the griddler, but all the crumbs wiped away very handily.
Okay, I lied. I haven't cleaned it yet but I can tell by the non-stick surface it's easy to clean.
So I learned a couple things today:
1. Panini makers aren't just for hoity, rich folk. Mine was a Christmas gift from my Mother-in-law. The press is a Cuisinart brand, I think original price around $100 on sale for $50.
2. Paninis elevate the taste of a sandwich and are verrrrry easy to make. Even a monkey could make a panini. As you witnessed above.
Angie aka Bubbles the Monkey
and go out and buy a panini press, you won't be disappointed
and the next post will be all about an exciting Spicy White Bean Chili!
Have a great Monday!!
Hope everybody's Holidays
