Sunrise in New Hampshire

I will enjoy the beauty of a fluffy, white morning for a little longer before the shoveling begins. Perfect day for building a snowman and enjoying hot chocolate.

Sunrise over the Mount Washington region, New Hampshire…Nature’s Inspiration

Thoughts fly free.

Dreams sleep in silence.

Voices soar when spoken.

But written words remain, carved in granite like nature’s masterpiece.

 

Tomato Mozzarella Panini

While going dairy and gluten free has made a world of difference in my day to day life, there are times when I crave my favorite foods beyond control. I splurge, and for the moment taste satisfaction, but my stomach soon reminds me why I don’t eat certain things. So, for today, I will dream of my favorite lunch while I pack my gluten free tuna macaroni salad.

And, if anyone out there knows of a lactose free mozzarella cheese that actually tastes like mozzarella cheese, please let me know!

 

Tomato Mozzarella Panini

Easy, Easy, and so tasty!

Bakery Italian Bread (pre-sliced saves time)

Fresh Mozzarella (splurge for the good stuff, trust me!)

Tomato slices

Fresh Basil (chopped)

Balsamic Glaze

Slightly butter the bread and assemble your masterpiece. If you do not have a panini maker, a frying pan still works.

When done, drizzle with balsamic glaze (I always make a little puddle of glaze to dip in).  Enjoy!
