Posts Tagged ‘Panini Sandwich’

Yesterday I tried out my New Foam Roller. Some areas that I rolled over were very tender and it was a bit on the painful side, but other areas it felt like it loosened up my muscle right away. My upper thigh and the area right above my knee’s were very tender. I can really see how using the roller regularly will have its benefit’s. It’s almost like its own workout, my arms and ab’s got quite the workout from supporting my body while Rolling. Bonus!

Being a fan of Panini Sandwiches, I have one sandwich that I crave on a regular basis.

Guacamole Chicken Breast Artichoke Panini

For a side dish Yucon Fries with Roasted Asparagus.

The crunchy grilled flavor along with the cheesy guacamole goodness keeps me coming back time and time again.  I have a few Panini recipes, but I never get to them because I love this combo so much.

My spread choice is either hummus or guacamole. You can not go wrong with either choice.

My workout was a good one, I did 40 minutes on the elliptical. Since really starting to challenge my strength and up my resistance I feel like I am getting stronger. I find myself able to do longer bursts at higher resistances and even add incline during the bursts. It’s a Work in Progress.

One workout I have been slacking on are my abs so I did the Tone it Up Girls  Lean Ab Pyramid.

  • 10 Standing Knee Raises
  • 20 Tummy Tucks
  • 30 Second Plank Jacks (on your hands in a plan, jack your legs out & in)
  • 40 Crunches
  • 50 Bicycle Crunches
  • 40 Crunches
  • 30 Second Plank Jacks (on your hands in a plan, jack your legs out & in)
  • 20 Tummy Tucks
So glad the work week is almost over! I’m planning on doing some serious cooking and cleaning over the week-end.

My stockpile of Chobani and Sabra Hummus are getting low, I have enough to get me through the end of the week.  I love hummus, It’s always in my fridge. I got a great deal on some single servings 4 packs. I normally buy it in the large family size because it’s a better price, but these little single servings were kinda cool to have on hand.

Here’s Today’s Bag

Getting closer to the end of the week makes me very happy! I don’t have any commitments this weekend so I plan on doing things I want to do. My husband is low on coffee and that only means one thing. Sam’s Club Run. I need a few things also so this will work out well. We are also looking for a new stove since I smashed the glass top on mine the other night.


I’ve been able to use the two right side burners, but the glass is slowly starting to crack up and across the entire stove. The stove top glass is supposed to be tampered glass, but the pieces of glass on my stove are sharp shards of glass. It really is not safe so I am not going to be using the stove top anymore, I am afraid that the entire top is gonna break and shatter all over my kitchen. Glass and food DO NOT MIX. So hopefully I will get a new stove within the next week, I don’t know how long I can go without using a stove, other than power outages and camping I’ve never been without a stove.

Guacamole Turkey Panini

This is a favorite sandwich of mine. Turkey breast lunch meat with a slice of deli cheese, smeared with guacamole and red peppers. Grilled on a panini maker for about 7 minutes.  Before I got my panini maker I use to just grill like a grilled cheese sandwich. I roasted some broccoli and cauliflower and dug in.

Roast broccoli and cauliflower on 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I tossed this batch with olive oil and some garlic, salt and pepper.


Keeping my veggie scraps is something I have done for a while. I compost and I feed my friends chickens. I love feeding the chickens, they are so fun to watch. So after cutting up the last weeks worth of veggies I have lots to give to the “Lovely Ladies”.

They also love bread, so I keep the end pieces in the freezer and when I get a bunch I break them up and they have a feast.

They love it when people come bearing gifts. When they see you they all stop what there doing and run to the fence. I call them my “Lovely Ladies”. They are right next store to where I work so on a nice day if I take a walk I always stop to see them. They do prefer if you have some thing for them, so if I don’t have any veggies or bread to give them, I know where their food is kept so I’ll grab a few handfuls and toss it in for them.

These are the eggs they produce. We call them Easter Eggs. The green and blue eggs are so beautiful. They all taste the same but they all come out different colors.

These are a batch from before Christmas, they don’t produce many eggs this time of year. I so look forward to getting some fresh eggs, but it probably won’t be until end of March.

Question on the day: How do you like to eat your eggs
