So a little earlier today, I got call from the hubby asking if I’d be willing to change our plans for tonight. Our friends, Joe & Kate were planning on going to the movies tonight and asked if we’d like to join them! They’ve already seen Toy Story 3, so we ended up going to see “Despicable Me” instead. It was a really cute movie – and those little Minions were freakin hilarious!
After taking into account the movie time and how much time would be left for a dinner out, Jay and I decided to nix the dinner out and save it for tomorrow night. Normally, I’d be kinda bummed but I had actually been having very intense cravings earlier today for a grilled veggie panini.
So I got out my trusty Griddler Jr. (which I LOVE and don’t know why I don’t break it out more often!)
And created the panini of my dreams.
Before making the sandwich, I grilled up some yellow squash & zucchini — about 5 minutes per side, sprayed with PAM & sprinkled with some S&P. I then took 2 slices of whole wheat bread and topped them with some roasted red pepper hommus, a generous helping of the grilled veggies, some tomato slices, and a couple thin slices of my yummy Gouda cheese.
It was a phenomenal panini indeed! A perfect reminder that I need to make these more often.
Along with my panini, I enjoyed OD’d on these delicious goodies: Food Should Taste Good Cheddar chips
These babies may just give my sweet potato chips a run for their money! They had a subtle cheese flavor, that almost reminded me of nacho cheese Doritos, but 10 times better. The cheese tasted much more natural, but not overwhelming. I’d say these guys are going to be trouble — but considering a good amount of them are already gone, I’d say most of the damage has already been done.
As for my movie treat (because really, who can go to a movie and not snack on at least something) I packed up a cupcake.
That’s right, a cupcake. Don’t judge. Some people like their popcorn…I like my sweets. The only disappointment I found with eating a cupcake in a movie theater is that you don’t get to eyeball it and give it the lovey-dovey, googly eyes that it so deserves.
I am SO psyched to have just come home to find a FABULOUS package waiting for me!! It’s from a certain bloggy friend that TOTALLY made my night! I promise I’ll share tomorrow!
Question for the Night:
What’s your favorite movie time snack?
