my amazing panini maker!

happy friday bloggies! i am usually so super excited that the weekend is almost here...however, we are winding down vacation laziness and i am sad. like seriously sad. oh well....no need to fret the small stuff right?

i wanted to share with you my amazing lunch i whipped up yesterday with my brand spankin new panini maker! compliments of two of my adorable girls. yes! i think i mentioned i had a birthday coming up and they surprised me with this:


soooo now, i, too, can join the ranks of many ~eating these sinfully delish sammies....here's what i threw together.....(be nice....we havent been to the grocery ALL week)....



i snagged some yummy jalapeno cheddar bread at this amazing polish bakery near our home, (and i maybe, sort of, also tried their flaky, long, cream cheese filled 'snoogli')....maybe...just sayin....

i filled with lowfat ham, mexican cheese mix, parmesan/romano/asiago shavings, sprayed with cooking spray, sprinkled with garlic powder and montreal seasoning.......to produce these delightful results:

 

i had the super smaller one of the two.....and they were fabulous! so good that the hubs asked for them for dinner also. lol. silly man.

so whats everyone doing this weekend? i hope super fun stuff. it is finally clear, blue skies, sunny and looking ever so summery outside this morning. yay! (bet ya didnt know that i LOVE my hot filled summertime days!)

pondering thoughts......do you ever wonder about your life??? (ok, yes, this is a weird question)....but do you ever wonder if you are where you are supposed to be??? making the right choices, and doing whats best for you??? since i have been on vacay mode, i have been thinking a lot....and sometimes, i just wonder.......

it's just a question.....

i hope everyone has a fantabulous start to their weekend! enjoy some fun and sun! xo

I don't know if I ponder "life", but I do sometimes wonder if where I am is the right place? I moved to Chicago by myself on a gut instinct. So far, I think it's worked out well- but you always wonder...

But it reminds me of one of my fav quotes:

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be."
-Douglas Adams

Have a good friday, lady! :)

I wonder about my life every single day, multiple times. It's a bad habit of mine---wondering if I should stay in Charlotte, stick with my career, if I'm ever going to meet a normal man, etc. Grrrr. You're not the only one though!!

And that panini maker is beautiful, I want one! And Jalapeno cheese bread? OMFG. Fabulous!! Are you going anywhere fun on vaca or just away from work?? :)

Okay, first, the panini looks/sounds delicious. (I'm hungry.) And, second, I think about that question all the time. Especially lately. And the only thing I'm sure of is that I have no idea.

Your sandwich looks delish...and jalapeno cheddar bread?!!? I need to find some of that! YUM!!

I sometimes wonder about my life and hope that I am making the right decisions for myself and my family! I just always hope that I am the correct decisions and if I don't, I deal with that later!!

I haven't been to Target in a few weeks but I am SO getting the panini maker. I LOVE sandwiches like that. Yum!

I wonder about life a lot! I feel like I'm heading in the right direction, but there's something missing. Maybe one day I'll figure that out! :) Happy Sunday!
