What can I say, it was a sandwich kind of day around here! First the egg-less salad sammies for lunch, and now the panini for dinner. And, yet again, my second meal consisting of white bread, both in the same day. Gasp!! This time it was an organic french bread loaf from Whole Foods. It was good....and so worth the overload of bad carbs.
Tonight I changed up our usual panini and made one based on the Dalai Mama's panini. We usually put mozzarella on ours, and since I am trying to go vegan, I thought the Dalai Mama's version sounded like it would be better without cheese than my own version. So, for the panini, I spread one slice of bread with Nayonaise, topped it with halved artichoke hearts, next a layer of roasted red pepper. Then some sliced roma tomato, some baby spinach and a drizzle of olive oil. Finally I seasoned the whole thing with some salt and pepper and put it on the press.
This was delicious. I really really wanted to eat a second one, but knew better than to eat 3 white bread sandwiches in one day!
Along with the sammies we had some sea salt and pepper Kettle Chips. Whole Foods was having a sale on organic broccoli today, so I bought several heads. I steamed some of that as well. And, to finish it off we had some pink Cara Cara oranges. I couldn't find any of the delicious blood oranges we've had for the past 2 weeks, so I opted for Cara Cara's since I've never had them before. They aren't as good as the blood oranges, but they are good.
