While out on our NYE holiday walk around the neighborhood the day before, we slipped into our local grocery store and bought up some of our favorite sandwich fixings for a memorable New Years Day pressed panini sandwich.
After doing a test panini of peanut butter and banana we were ready to make a real sandwich. We have been dreaming of making our own pressed muffaletta sandwiches for awhile and here was our first one!
Seemed easy enough - assemble sandwich and press. And it really was that easy.
Later that evening we decided to try another sandwich we have been dreaming of creating at home - a traditional Cuban Sandwich. We managed to snag some of the carnitas from our NYE's tamalero, add a few pickles, some swiss cheese and a slice or two of Virginia ham, press and bam! A pretty darn good Cuban sandwich!
If this is what we're eating 24 hours into the New Year, here's to a gut busting 2011!
