Early Bird Dinner

Mal and I have a movie date tonight, so dinner was eaten super early this evening. Our options were eating now, after the movie (around 9:30) or buying movie theater food for dinner. Preparing a fast meal at home was an easy decision for us! 

Dinner included a simple salad of lettuce, tomatoes, and organic creamy Italian dressing drizzled on top. 


While I made the salad, Mal threw together a couple quick paninis for us. (I have a feeling our panini-maker is going to get a ton of use!) Inside was Boars Head pepper-cracked turkey, swiss cheese, and balsamic sweet onion jam... and a pickle on the side. 


Dinner all together...


The plan for dessert is a plastic baggie with three Mi-Del Vanilla Snaps inside for the movie theater. (I try to avoid the expensive, mega-portions of movie theater candy.) I just finished eating my dinner, so I am not hungry, but I know I'll want something sweet a little later. :)


Sorry such a rushed post! Off to see Dark Night with my husband

Have fun at the movie with your HUSBAND! :) It's a good one...I enjoyed it and those are not my types of movies at all. Of course I went because of the boyfriend...and all the hype.

can you find balsamic sweet onion jam taste at the grocery store? Dark Knight was so good but SO long. When you walk out you'll wonder exactly how many drugs Heath was on...but he did an amazing job of "getting into character."

Emlod10,

Yep, I found the balsamic sweet onion jam at the grocery store. Sorry that I didn't post more about it last night-- I was in such a rush to get to the movie. The jam is Stop & Shop's "Simply Enjoy" brand, which I found with the other jams and jellies. The spread was soo yummy-- it was chunky, almost like a chutney.

I read your blog. Stopped, picked up the phone and called my husband to find out what night he wanted to go see Dark Knight this weekend. Thanks for reminding me!

Oh and I also asked for a panini maker. :)
