My lunch today? Mini paninis and sauteed spinach. Took me less than 5 minutes to prepare, start to finish.
Many of you know that I hate cooking. I am a "I want my food ready, now" kinda girl. But this lunch is quick, makes me feel like I'm having more than the boring old sandwich, and is super tasty.
I order bags of baby spinach through Peapod, and I grab a handful and fry it up in margarine with lemon & pepper seasoning. I suppose you can use the cooking spray or olive oil or something a little more healthy than margarine, of course. I just love buttered spinach.
The paninis I make using this:
Cuisinart Griddler Panini Press for Brad for his birthday and we use it all the time. It is really quick to heat up. I plug it in while preparing my sandwich, plop it on once the light turns green, and let it sit and cook while I am making my spinach.
My favorite paninis include apple slices, but for a quick work day lunch I just use some cheese, buffalo chicken, and virginia ham on ciabatta bread.
