Oh Friday, I am so happy that you are here!
The upcoming week is Korean “thanksgiving,” (Chuseok) so it’s smooth sailing from here. We have friends from Canada coming to visit us and explore Korea a bit. I always enjoy showing people the sights and eats that Korea has to offer, so it should be a great week.
It’s funny how a day can drag on forever when you are anticipating something. I just kept chanting in my head “come on weekend, come on weekend!” I was anticipating the weekend and the dinner that I had planned. It’s always nice to have something to look forward to at the end of the day.
Today I had a craving for a good sandwich. I rarely make sandwiches for dinner, I don’t know why, but tonight felt like a sandwich night. I had some brie, pesto, eggplant and zucchini on hand, which I thought would make a marvelous grilled sandwich. I picked up a fresh baguette on my way home, along with some wine of course, and got to work.
I grilled up some eggplant, zucchini and mushrooms, smothered some mouth watering pesto on the baguette, layered on some brie and veggies and then grilled it up in the pan. I do not have a panini press, so I just mushed it in the pan with the heaviest thing I could find in my kitchen; a plate and my huge biceps 🙂 This proved to be an excellent substitution.
I love sandwiches and I love wine; this was the perfect Friday night meal.
My tum is so content. Now maybe a bit more wine and a movie snuggled up with Adrian.
Take care and enjoy your day to the fullest.
