How was your Easter? Easter was a week long holiday for us filled with what seemed like an egg hunt everyday. We attended our city egg hunt on Saturday and it was unbelievably crowded. In all the madness all we had to show for it was a sad half of a plastic pink egg. It was a bust. I didn’t feel too bad because my kids scored plenty of candy in their other hunts that week. Total sugar overload to say the least.
Saturday afternoon, after a sugar induced hyper-hypo misbehaving episode by my kids, my husband told them he was shooting the Easter bunny and that he wasn’t coming the next day.
Aren’t we nice parents?
It’s really our fault for letting them eat their candy at full throttle. Next year, I’ll be extra careful to eat confiscate their candy and ration it out.
I recently ordered a panini press and when I received it, the instruction pamphlet had a picture of what looked like a Caprese salad stuffed in a sandwich. I love caprese salad and the thought of tomato, fresh mozzarella, and basil all melted and gooey in a sandwich sounded delicious. Tomorrow is National Grilled Cheese Day and this is my way of celebrating.
So I tried it. It was good but was missing something. Garlic? More basil? I immediately made another one with a dollop of basil pesto inside and it was perfect. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar on the outside is all you need to make this out of this world.
