Margherita Panini


Um don’t hate me.

But sometimes you need a grilled cheese sammy in your life. And not just any grilled cheese…grilled mozzarella, tomato and basil – holy YUM!  As I said before, we’ve been packing like crazy so my kitchen is rather empty at the moment which means living off things like soup and sandwiches.  I used panini bread since we already had half a loaf on hand, but feel free to use whole wheat bread!  I promise this will still taste delicious, a caprese explosion in your mouth. Tomorrow I’ll share with you my sweet potato lentil soup, um you might die.  It’s my favorite.

You gotta love the simple things in life!  Easiest thing you’ll ever make!
