Aziz is my homeskillet.
I just made myself legit one of the best dinners I have ever made and had to share the joy. We had some fresh mozzarella in the fridge which I find to be delicious and wanted to incorporate. I toasted a couple pieces of bread and covered them with the sliced mozzarella and sliced tomatoes. I put these in my panini press on ‘melt’ (the press was my birthday present last year and was the best gift EVER). After the mozzarella melted and the tomatoes crisped on top, I took off the toasts and threw a little oregano and aged balsamic over top. SO AMAZING. Seriously, I usually don’t like tomatoes but with the melty cheese and vinegar I loved them. I am always of the opinion that good aged balsamic improves everything… even vanilla ice cream or strawberries (seriously, try it).
Perhaps a little low in protein but fresh mozzarella is fairly low-fat as cheeses go and I got my vegetables in so I’m calling it a success!!
A few more classics that I have finally gotten around to reading and loved:
1. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
2. The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway (swoon)
3. Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquéz
Read. You shan’t regret it.
