Like many of us, I am excited when I find another use for something that I own- like my George Foreman grill. This past week I was looking for something
different & quick to make with the leftover turkey meat from Thanksgiving.I found a Thanksgiving Panini on the
Pioneer Woman’s website http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/leftover-thanksgiving-panini-recipe/index.html
which looked delicious…..however, I don’t own a Panini machine. Right away, I thought of my George Forman grill and decided to give it a
try!I was very happy with the results and the Panini was delicious! Below you will find how I made my Thanksgiving Panini—yum, yum!
Two slices of whole wheat
Stuffing (I made
cornbread this year)
1. Turn on your GFG so that it will be nice
and hot.Be sure to have all of your
ingredients out and ready to assemble.
2. Butter one side of each piece of bread.
3. Lay one slice butter side down on a cutting
board, and put some gravy.Cold gravy
works best so that itdoesn’t run off the sandwich.
4. Next put some cranberry sauce, then turkey & stuffing.
5. Lastly put the other slice of bread on top
with butter side facing up.
6. Using a wide spatula, lift your sandwich
and place it on the hot GFG and slowly push the cover down.I held
my cover down so that the heat would penetrate through the whole sandwich.This took only a couple minutes and it was done.
My husband loved the sandwich and now I can
make other varieties of Panini’s with my GFG.
it’s been some time since my last blog, and I must say that I have truly missed
writing and also reading the other wonderful blogs that are out there.During my absence, God has done something in
my life that I never thought would never happen—he blessed me with a
child!On December 11, 2012, my Dr. confirmed
that I was in fact pregnant!I was in
complete shock!You see, my husband and
I have been married for 8 years and had not yet conceived a child.We decided that we would leave this in God’s
Hands, and if it was His Will, then we would conceive.As the years went by, I slowly began
accepting a life without a child and quite honestly, had finally accepted it.I must mention here that I am 41 years old
and thought that I was in the early stages of menopause and that
a child would not be possible.One of my
favorite Bible verses is Proverbs 16:9- “In his heart, a man plans his course,
but the Lord determines his steps”.This
is so true as I began to pursue other passions in my life, but God had a
different plan for me, and for that, I am so blessed!For all of my family and friends out there
who are dealing with various struggles in their lives, don’t give up on
God!Invite Him into your life, continuously
seek a relationship with Him, give Him your life, verbally accept Him as your
Savior and allow Him to change your heart—you will not be disappointed!
am looking forward to my new journey as I embrace the wonderful gift of
motherhood!And without further a due,
here is my miracle & precious baby boy who arrived on July 31st.
Psalm 127:3 says that “Children are a gift from the Lord” and this I know…..thank you Jesus for my beautiful gift.
