Since my bridal shower was this past weekend, not only did I bring home birthday gifts, but I brought home shower gifts as well. The first thing I did when we got home was unpack our beautiful new everyday China, our new gorgeous silverware, and our new set of kitchen knives. The first meal that we cook with all of our new items had to be a good one. So we went classic: a chicken caprese panini. Our ingredients included:
grilled chicken tenderloins
sliced buffalo mozzarella
With a chicken caprese panini I was able to grill the chicken on our lovely new grill pan (so much surface area!), slice the tomatoes and mozzarella with our new knives, and I even pressed our sandwiches with our wonderful new panini press!
Also, even cleaning was a dream! Grill pans are usually such a pain to clean, but this one was nearly spotless with the gentle wiping of a sponge. It was such a pleasure to cook and clean with our first complete set that is all ours. I do hope that this is an indication of how every future meal will go! Adieu, Yelle
