“Just once, I would like to wake up, turn on the news, and hear…’Monday has been canceled, go back to sleep.”
…..yes, that is exactly how I feel this Monday…..good thing I have still one loaf of Oregon Hazelnut Bread left in my freezer….
……my newest addiction….from Franz Bakery in Portland.
Unfortunately, I can’t get Oregon Hazelnut bread in Canada so when I have it…..I DON’T share it.
I have been enjoying my yummy bread just lightly toasted with little bit of butter, but last week I decided to use it for PANINI.
…not just any Panini…..my own creation….Muenster, Avocado & Canadian Back Bacon on Oregon Hazelnut Bread with Garlic & Pepper Aioli.
I will share with you how to make my delicious Muenster, Avocado & Canadian Bacon Panini in just a second, but first……
…..so many things are going on at Casa Bailey…, but the one that bothers me the most is…..I think my sweet Hormone Boy’s heart is breaking…little bit each day….
He keeps telling me he’s fine….he smiles….he hugs me ….., but if I learned anything in my life …..that would be …..”if your teenage son that hardly talked to you for months starts smiling…..hugging you….hanging with you…..there is something going on in the HEART department”.
Hormone Boy had his heart badly broken in May…..he wasn’t looking for a relationship, but things happened and in the summer he fell in love with a sweet girl…..he was so in love…..
….they were inseparable for almost 4 months…..they became part of each others families….suddenly this weekend “they” decided (according to HB) to take a break….not to break up, but take a break….
….he still thinks he has a girlfriend and I sure hope so, but when I asked him ……”what if”…..his response was: “If you love something let it go…..”
…..honestly it almost broke my heart…..how did he got to be so wise, sweet….caring and sensitive?
Anyway, no matter what will happen I always will be there for my baby…..no matter how old he gets….and I will always be there to make him feel better with delicious sandwiches like my Muenster, Avocado & Canadian Bacon Panini on Oregon Hazelnut Bread with Garlic & Pepper Aioli.
- 2 Pcs. Oregon Hazelnut Bread
- 4 Slices Muenster Cheese
- 2-4 Slices Canadian Back Bacon
- 1/2 Avocado (sliced)
- 1 Tbsp Garlic & Pepper Aioli
STEP 1: Spread half of the aoili onto one piece of bread. Top with 2 pieces of Muenster, then Canadian bacon, avocado, rest of Muenster cheese. Spread leftover of aioli onto the second piece of bread and make a sandwich.
STEP 2: Spray both side of the sandwich with butter spray and grill in panini grill or on the stove griddle until toast is golden brown and cheese is melted.
I love eating Muenster, Avocado & Canadian Bacon Panini with just slices of fresh cucumber and radishes. You can serve it with soup or salad for a hearty lunch.
TIP: When grilling sandwiches or making panini I use little bit of butter or olive oil spray instead of butter or margarine to cut down on fat and calories. The taste and result are the pretty much the same.
What is your favorite panini or sandwich?
Don’t forget….Keep Smiling….Keep Cooking!
