Pizza Panini

pizza panini

Yesterday was a busy day for me so I was in need of a quick dinner solution.  Luckily I had all the ingredients needed to make us some hot, crispy pizza paninis.

All you need for this simple panini sandwich is some bread, sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.  Try not to leave the sauce on the bread too long before cooking it.  The bread gets a little soggy if you leave it sit too long to absorb into the soft bread.

The possibilities for this panini are endless.  Treat it like a pizza and add any desired topping you wish.  This makes a great snack late at night too!

simple french bread

I swear I’m addicted to bread.  I don’t know if it’s the Italian in me or what.  And warm, fresh baked bread is like my drug.  Can’t…get…enough!!

So the other day when I made the delicious Corn and Red Potato Chowder, I knew I had to make a quick and easy homemade bread.  I have been saving this French bread recipe to try for a while now.  And it didn’t disappoint.

Corn and Red Potato Chowder

corn and red potato chowder

Boy the weather here in Western PA has really taken a turn for the extra chilly this week.  We’re expected to have lows in the 30′s this weekend, eek!  I’m so not ready to dig out a jacket yet.

I can definitely tell when the nights are getting colder by the amount of pets in our bed.  We usually only have our yellow lab in bed with us but the past few nights we’ve been blessed with two cats too.  It gets a little crowded with all 5 of us, thank goodness for king size beds!

With these chilly evenings, I’ve been craving warm hearty soups.  This week I tried this corn and potato chowder that is to die for!  I’m usually not a huge fan of cream based soups but this one is really great.

chocolate chip pumpkin muffin tops

As you can see, I’m still pumpkin crazy here!  This time around I made some moist pumpkin muffin tops with chocolate chips added in.

I can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner.  Where is this year going so fast?!  This weekend I’ve gotta spend some time preparing for Trick or Treat night…not that I know when it is or anything.

Our neighborhood is so screwy when it comes to Trick or Treat.  We don’t have kids so I never know when it’s going to be and our borough always schedules it days before Halloween.  I hate that!

It always comes as a surprise to us so I’ve gotta make sure I get candy stocked this weekend.  Halloween is next Sunday but I wouldn’t be surprised if Trick or Treat for us is Wednesday or Thursday, grrr!  That’s no fun at all to me!  It should be at least the day before if not on Halloween, that’s just my two cents though.
