rainy day panini bento


Hi bento pals! Sorry for not posting for a while, I've been a little under the weather recently. Speaking of weather, the last few days have brought an incredible amount of drenching rain to our area.

On this wet and gray afternoon, I used a lovely b-day gift from my mom--a panini maker--to make turkey kielbasa, sliced green fig, radicchio and provolone panini sandwiches. They were oh so good! It will be fun to try other melty, savory, toasty combinations with this great device...any suggestions?


Wishing you a relaxing and fun upcoming weekend!

I love simple panini with peanut butter but your panini looks great Jenn! I hope you are feeling better soon and rest well this weekend. Take care Jenn! (^.^)

Hi Bobo! Good idea...coziness and warm drinks sound like just the ticket this weekend. Thanks for your visit, dear!

Hi Lia! Thanks so much. I like the idea of trying sweet paninis, peanut butter sounds great, maybe melted dark chocolate? Have a lovely weekend...

I hope that you feel better soon. Now I'm craving paninis though. If you want dessert paninis - you could always use brie cheese and dark chocolate, or even bananas and nutella could be in the mix. :)

Wow - the panini looks scrummy - what a great present!

Hi Lexi, thanks! The only problem is that it makes the siren song of carbs that much harder to resist!
