I am an amazing sandwich-maker

if I do say so myself.

I’m making baked potatoes and sandwiches for dinner. The potatoes are in the oven and taking forever to bake (thus the blogging). I’m making turkey-cheese-pesto mayo-bacon-roasted red pepper-tomato-onion-maybe lettuce paninis. On sourdough. Sounds good, eh? I know, and I’m hungry. I also have pickles for the sandwiches but can’t decide whether they would be good on all of that or not. We’ll see about that.

Stupid potatoes need to hurry up and get done.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

  1. Do you have one of those panini presses? The thing that presses them down and grills them at the same time? That would be a nice appliance to have.


    1. I would like one of those fancy panini presses… but the thing I have is basically only the TOP of a panini press. It’s cast iron and has ridges on the bottom and a handle on the top. I can take a picture sometime and put it up here. It fits inside my cast iron grilling pan and works perfectly since both sides of the sandwich have ridges that way. It’s heavy but it does help to push down when you place it on top of the sandwich. Basically, you put the press on an eye of the stove and let it get really hot, then put it on the sandwich. This leaves nice brown “grill marks.” Hope this makes sense… I can take a picture, like I said.

      It was about $15 or so at Marshall’s or Ross, btw.


  2. What a good idea! We did paninis once, but much less efficiently that you. That’s the reason we only did it once. We used the big iron skillet which, though it IS big, isn’t big enough for such…unless you only want to make one or two. And we wanted to make ten. : )
