A lot of people commented they were interested in the Ham, Gruyere & Fig Panini I had on last week's menu. It's actually super simple, a few slices of prosciutto (though any sliced ham will work), top that with a few thin sliced of gruyere & then the thing that makes the whole thing for me, fig spread. Put that all on a good roll, brush with some olive oil & you are ready to cook it on your panini grill of choice.
I adore this fig spread. It's great on cheese & crackers & also on my sandwich for lunch. We can't easily get fresh figs here in MN so this is the next best thing.
On to Menu Planning Monday....
We roasted a chicken on Sunday for dinner so we'll get two more dinner out of it this week plus some chicken salad for lunch, what a deal.

I'm tried of waiting for spring so this weekend we planted a window sill herb garden for our kitchen.
We needed small planter & couldn't find anything small enough at the garden store. A quick trip to the kitchen section of IKEA provided us with lots of options though. We ended up going with these black ceramic cups, since they don't have drainage holes with added a good inch of small stones to the bottom of each. Right now I have thyme, rosemary & opal basil growing. I'll add some chive but we are currently starting it from seeds in our little greenhouse set up.
