So it’s “Date Night Dinner” day…………my thoughts have been on pasta lately. Maybe its the weather……freezing. Plus I have had several days home from school………sub-zero temps……..so I had some time on my hands. I was looking over some of my old recipes trying to decide what the pasta should be. Then Tim reminded me of a pasta that I had made when we first were married. Which hasn’t been all that long ago as we have only been married for a little less that 3 years. I will share the whole silly crazy story on Valentines Day.

But if you have been following the blog, you will remember that Tim’s sense of taste is not perfect, due to an accident. I try to make things spicy without being crazy hot. This dish has the pasta I have been craving and the spice for Tim. Continue reading “Pasta Puttanesca”

This weeks “Date Night Dinner” is maybe more of a lunch, although I do like the ocassional sandwich for dinner. Sometimes you just don’t want a huge meal.

But if you are going to have a sandwich, and its going to be for dinner, it should be a really great sandwich, like a panini. I don’t remember the first panini I ever had but I think for the money they are by far the best thing since sliced bread……..ha, ha. I am not sure if its a rule or not but, a panini should always be on ciabatta bread. It is far and away the best……..

I am kinda the Queen of cleaning out the refrigerator. As I looked in it I saw that there were some lemons that needed to be used, a half a log of goat cheese, a container of mixed greens, a half an onion and half a loaf of ciabatta. Well lemon pepper marinade is always good with chicken. The goat cheese could be spread on the bread……….if I grilled the onions along with the chicken……hum………. now I was getting an idea……Panini! I could top it off with the mixed green after it was grilled. But it need a little something more so a Balsamic Drizzle was just the ticket. Serve it up with your favorite chips or a nice pasta salad or if our weather is any indicator…….brrrrrrrr……….. maybe a nice cup of soup. Continue reading “Lemon Pepper Chicken Panini”
