More Panini Love

If I knew how much I would enjoy owning a panini-maker, I would have bought one years ago! Once again, we relied on our wonderful and talented panini-maker for dinner. Panini-makers are especially amazing when you don't feel like cooking or it's way too hot to cook or you have some bread that is about to go stale or you are seriously craving carbs or... well, you get the point. :) 


Tonight's panini was made with ham, swiss cheese, and maple mustard. On the side, I threw together a salad with grape tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, black olives, feta, and cabernet vinegar. It was a simple side, but vibrant and nutritious. 


The Maple Mustard is from the Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury, Vermont. The mustard is made from all-natural ingredients, including Cold Hollow's very own cider syrup as well as coarse mustard, brown sugar, and lemon juice. The Maple Mustard was a great addition to my ham and cheese panini! 


Slim-pickings for dessert tonight! I managed to come up with a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and fluff... and almond slices for a little crunch. It satisfied my sweet tooth, no problem. 


I decided to join the gym!!! Really, it was an easy decision! I'm heading to bed early again tonight, so that I can get up bright and early for Bosu Challenge! Good night! Almost the weekend!

Hmm you're inspiring me to get my own panini maker! Question, do you think a George Forman Grill could work as a make-shift panini maker? I don't know if it would be messy... but it could save me some money from buying another appliance :)

Did you only make half a panini or is that a full sandwich pictured?

I swear I am dying to buy a panini maker and it's your fault/thanks to you - I don't know which! I love the way your grilled sammies look!

VeggieGirl said...

You should seriously be a spokesmodel for the company that makes the panini-maker, haha :0)

Hooray for joining the gym!!

Sammie said...

Your panini's look so yummy. Enjoy the gym, sounds like they have lots to offer.

Tina, your posts have been inspiring me to break out my George Foreman and make paninis!

Everyone else- I think the Foreman works very well in place of a panini press. I put mine on medium and it toasts and melts perfectly. I have a red one with 5 different plates (I think it's called the G5?). It also has a little switch so it can be flat like a panini press instead of tilted in regular foreman position. It also does a really good job with fish!

Your panini looks delicious. I make a Greek salad very similar to yours, except I use balsamic and lemon juice.

Be careful with the Bosu's. I sprained my ankle in a bosu class 2 weeks ago. (Not to scare you, just be cautious and go at your own pace with it.)

Caitlin said...

im glad you joined the gym. will you tell us all the new tricks you learn in classes?? :)

Becca said...

mangotriathlete said...

Panini maker - now you have me looking for one! I must have missed it, but what kind do you have?

linds said...

Oooh how fun! Enjoy your new gym membership! Bosu sounds interesting..

mi said...

i love to see all your paninis, they look so good! i have a george foreman, do you think paninis would work as well with those?

Tina said...

Anon and mi,

Hmmmm... I've never owned a George Forman Grill, but they look like they'd work as a make-shift panini maker. Bridget (comment below) says her Forman works well as a panini press.

mangotriathlete,

Our panini maker is the Cuisinart Griddler Grill. It is sweeeeeet! Besides paninis, you can cook meat, eggs, pancakes, etc. on it as well. It's very versatile! :)

jenngirl said...

Career rebirth specialist Frankie Hejduk retires

Few players enjoy more career rebirths than Frankie Hejduk, who retired officially today from the game he played professionally for 16 years. Along the way the [url=http://wholesalenikeshoes.manifo.com/]wholesale nike shoes[/url] laid-back, longtime U.S. international played in two World Cups and missed one more, in 2006, due to injury.
Career rebirth No. 1: Some time in the late 1990s, he got serious about soccer, converting himself from California surfer dude getting it done on high VO2 max and athletic ability to a guy more dedicated to his craft. Without the metamorphosis, Hejduk may have been on a fast track to the ordinary.
Career rebirth No. 2: He fell out of favor at Germanys Bayer Leverkusen and transferred to St. Gallen in Switzerland in 2002 a move that signaled things definitely going in the wrong direction. So Hejduk booked it back to MLS, signing with Columbus in March of 2003. It spurred something more out of the tireless defender, who had an All-Star campaign and eventually spent eight seasons in Ohio.
Career rebirth No. 3: Injuries kept Hejduk out of the 2006 World Cup and limited his time for the Crew. He was 32 by summer of 2006 and could have begun downshifting. Instead, he got healthy and contributed mightily as Columbus built a strong side around Guillermo Barros Schelotto and claimed the 2008 MLS Cup.
Career rebirth No. 4: He was 34 when he directed a header into goal in that MLS championship victory under Sigi Schmid. Now would be the time to begin downshifting, right? Well, heres what the U.S. Soccer site says about the big role Hejduk played in 2008 and 2009. As he help shore up a weak spot in the national team pool at fullback:
2009: Marked his 14th year with the U.S. Mens National Team by making four appearances, all starts, and grabbing one goal and one assist Lent his veteran wherewithal to three final round World Cup qualifiers in 2009, including the 2-0 win against Mexico on Feb. 11, the 2-2 draw with El Salvador on March 28, and the 3-0 demolition of Trinidad Tobago on April 1 Scored the equalizing goal in the 2-2 draw with El Salvador, his seventh career goal and second in World Cup qualifying Also added an assist in the same game, setting up Jozy Altidore
You could even say he had a fifth rebirth in 2011. Released from Columbus, Hejduk ended up providing veteran cover for the Galaxy. He played in just six matches but was there in the end when Los Angeles claimed its 2011 championship.
