The very next night after our reuben success story, we had my dad over for more dinner panini! My mom was off on a quick jaunt to Japan (fancy!), so we invited my dad over to revel in the glory of the panino press... (which, incidentally, was a gift from my parents). I cleverly re-used the tempeh marinade from the night before for some tofu, summer squash and eggplants. Then I busted out my marvelous pesto stash, and some giant green heirloom tomatoes from the garden and made up some perfect summer sandwiches.
Mmmmm! I brush a tiny bit of olive oil on the bread before pressing it... for that "just perfect" crunch when you bite into it.
