Grilled Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich


You know how you sometimes meet someone who just really leaves a lasting impression on you? Many, many years ago when I was working at the Clinique counter, I met a lady who was one of those people. Turned out she was one of Revlon’s Most Unforgettable Women. I can’t even tell you what it was about her that made her unforgettable, she just was. Today it was a little girl who was about 2. Her name was Bellamia. She was wearing leopard pants. :) She approached me when I was in line at the grocery store and said “Hi, what’s your name?” I said “Beth” and she stuck out her hand to shake my hand and said “Nice to meet you, Beth. My name is Bellamia.” We had a nice little conversation and then she moved on to the next person. I’m guessing it must take her mom at least 30 minutes¬†longer for each errand. She is destined for something big. I figure she has a future in acting, if not then definitely in politics.

Breakfast Panini

Somewhere between taking Megan to the dentist to get her tooth pulled and going to the PTA meeting and performance, I finally found a few spare minutes to use my new panini press. But now my neck is sore from looking left to right on the stage from one daughter to the other. They could at least put them in the same section of the stage so I don’t feel like I’m watching a tennis match.

Love, love, love the panini maker!!! This is the one I got…

1 Egg
1 Tbs Bacon Bits
1 Tbs Crumbled Sausage, cooked
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 English Muffin
Spray Butter

Preheat panini machine.

Beat egg and add in sausage and bacon. Cook over medium heat until done.

Split muffin in half. Lightly spray inside of the muffin with butter. Place the cut side down on a plate. Top with 1/2 the cheese, egg mixture, remaining cheese and the other half of the muffin with the cut side on top.

Cook in panini maker for 3 minutes.
