This post is going to be short and sweet because this pregnant lady had a looooong day. I seriously need to talk to my union rep about getting sick time.

Anyway, short and sweet.

Kind of like this panini. This panini is about the fastest easiest most delicious lunch that you can make, and better than all of that, it uses your Thanksgiving leftovers!

The pesto might seem like a weird twist, and certainly if you aren’t feeling adventurous, you can skip it, but I wouldn’t. It adds another layer of flavor to this already delicious and wonderful sandwich. The cranberry sauce pairs perfectly with the goat cheese in this sandwich and makes everything moist and delicious.

The only thing that might make this sandwich better is stuffing . . . because you know stuffing makes everything better. #kidding #notreally

    Considering our panini press is always out being used, I am thinking I am going to have to have this after thanksgiving! Looks delish!

      Nancy, I LOVE panini presses, especially on post holiday days when you are still making people food, but you don’t really feel like cooking a full spread.
