paniniI almost cried when I found out one of my roomates in college liked country music.
I hated it.
(Along with her posters of babies and horses and your regular smooching of her boyfriend…)
But my husband, underneath is polo wearing exterior, is a country boy who would be happy in camo driving a pick up truck in North Dakota–
-And he is loyal lover of country music.
Over the 11+ years of being together and riding alongside him as he crooned to country ballads, I have come to truly love it.
The Kennys, the Keith Urbans, the Zack Browns….
I get it.
What better music to sing along to, right?

Last weekend we went to our 4th Kenny Chesney concert. It was crazy (people watching topping the list of favorite things)
We sang every song at the top of our lungs and had a blast.
A simple reminder to give things a little chance.

PS–I love paninis and this one was amazing!
Here’s What You Need: (For 1)
Handful of baby spinach
Storebought pesto or even better use Busy Bree’s Superfood Italian!
Cheese–I used Farmer’s Cheese with Basil in it-yum!
2-3 roasted red peppers, patted dry
Hearty bread
Extra virgin olive oil

Here’s What You Do:
Preheat a Panini maker or grill pan. Make the sandwich by piling up the cheese, peppers, and spinach on one side of the bread and spreading the pesto on the other. Top with the other bread and brush it with evoo on the outside. Make in the Panini maker for 4-5 minutes or until it gets nice and golden brown. If you are making this on a grill pan simply add the evoo to the pan over medium high and cook as you would a grilled cheese. Put a heavy pan on the top of the sandwich to get the nice grill marks!

Kid Tip:
Cheese + spinach=much simpler, more kid friendly!

Let’s be friends!
