So I was supposed to be engaged in a cake decorating class last night, but without boring everyone with the long story, the class actually starts on Thursday. I think I am going to do a trial run of some buttercream today to see if I can find just the right recipe.
Since I was home much earlier than I thought I would be, we made some sandwiches we had been dying to try out of Ina's At Home cookbook. The Tomato, Mozzarella & Pesto Panini recipe was, as always with Ina, easy to follow and yielded delicious results. We don't have a panini press, so we hauled out the George Foreman and went to work. I added a little pepper when I seasoned the tomato slices, but what I was really dreaming for was summer ripened tomatoes. Although the sandwiches were simple and incredible, those beauties you pluck off the vine come late August would have made a marked difference. We'll have to try again this summer, because to steal a quote from Ina...how easy was that!
