A Few Tasty Meals

I missed a Thursday and Friday post, so I thought I would cover a few meals that I had, which were either new or that I really enjoyed...

First, the discovery of using the George Foreman as a Panini press...

I never had a panini before, because I only eat cheese at home so that I know that it is vegetarian cheese. So I finally tried to make one. We had some left over grilled portabella mushrooms in the fridge, so I used those, some cheese, and some cranberry fig hummus to make a great sandwich. The combo of the hummus and the cheese melted so well together. I can't wait to have this again!!Then this morning I used the George Foreman to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich. I loved how it was so warm inside. I want to try a peanut butter and jelly sandwich next!

Secondly I had an oatmeal combo that I loved! I have seen people doing peanut butter and jelly in their oatmeal, so I tried mine with chocolate dreams peanut butter and some mixed berry jam. Then I topped it with original Puffins. I loved the crunch of the Puffins in the oatmeal! This was a combo I can't wait to have again.

I also added some Greek Yogurt, so this was a great protein filled breakfast that kept me fueled until lunch!

My third find was the Vegetarian Chili from Au Bon Pain. Like I mentioned before, we have one in the lobby of my building, so I pick it up every once and awhile. Another attorneys at my firm eat here DAILY!! I think it is a little crazy to eat at the same place every day, and I only eat out once or twice a week maximum usually, so I never understood eating out every meal. However, this chili was great, and it is even labeled Vegan. It filled me up and tasted great, so I would recommend it.

Well I have a lot to do around the house because my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law are coming for dinner.
Have a great Saturday!!
