So while I was at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday, I decided to buy a loaf of bread that we’d be able to use to make some paninis. I’m pretty sure it was the latest issue of Cooking Light magazine that revved up my desire for a panini, but whatever it was, they just sounded goooood.
With our fresh, new loaf of bread in the house, we deemed Sunday a “panini day” in our house…starting with breakfast.
Jay did a fabulous job of making the two of us a couple of turkey bacon, egg, and cheese paninis. The bread is really the perfect size because it doesn’t wind up making super massive sandwiches like this one. Soooo, so good.
We skipped having paninis for lunch because, well, I hardly ever end up eating a “real lunch” if we’re home on the weekends. I usually just wind up having mini meals throughout the afternoon. Dinner though? We were back to the panini.
I cooked up a few ears of (surprisingly good for it being May) corn on the cob and roasted some fresh asparagus with a little EVOO, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese (SO good…please do this! 400 degrees for about 20-30 mins).
For our sandwiches, we loaded them with marinated and grilled chicken breasts, provolone cheese, spinach, tomato, and spread them with some gar la la. To flavor the bread, we spread a thin layer of butter and sprinkles a little Italian seasoning.
Oh my goodness…so messy. So good.
While that may have been the end of our panini streak on Sunday, the good food didn’t stop there. Right now, Price Chopper is having a BOGO deal on Ben & Jerry’s and I somehow found my way over to that aisle while grocery shopping…can I just say how impressed I am with this Blueberry Vanilla Graham Greek frozen yogurt?
I’ve seen their frozen Greek yogurt for a while now, but it never really appealed much to me until the other day so I thought I’d give it a shot. I am DEFINITELY a fan…love the graham cracker swirls throughout it!
So there was a little recap of Sunday’s good eats, since I didn’t get a chance to share them with you earlier. Yesterday’s eats weren’t all that exciting…and I wasn’t planning on doing much of anything for dinner since Jay wasn’t going to be around, but then his plans changed so I had to come up with something.
Enter: Annie’s mac & cheese
I’ve sort of been craving mac and cheese lately, so this worked out perfect. I cooked up a box as directed then added in some diced tomatoes, fresh spinach, and leftover grilled chicken for added bulk and nutrition. Annie’s is always good in a pinch, and I usually try to keep a few boxes on hand just in case.
Before I got to work on that delicious dinner above, I decided to squeeze in a little Pilates session (in my new Reebok tee, which I wanted to be able to wear at least once before the bump really takes over!).
I had the energy to move, which was great, but my main motivation for doing it, to be honest, was to try to get Baby Tooth to move. He spent the majority of the day yesterday parked right under my right rib cage and good lord was it uncomfortable. Thankfully, the Pilates did help a little bit (along with some extra cat/cow stretches), and so far today he seems to have relocated his little feet.
Let’s just hope he stays that way.
Speaking of the little guy…the Baby Tooth page was updated this morning AND there’s a giveaway, too. Check it out!
