    I enjoy using my contact grill to make sandwiches & am always on the lookout for something new to try. This one will be made again! I added homemade 1000 Island dressing and used Bavarian sauerkraut. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

    This was delicious!! I made this for DH and I for dinner last night and we both loved it. I did what Jen did and spread some ff thousand island on each slice. Thank you for this great panini!!

    Great idea to use up corned beef and cabbage from St. Patrick's Day! We spread some fat free thousand island on the bread first.


I love the upper midwest, where my husband and I have made our home. We raise our two beautiful children in a small town west of the Twin Cities. I am an engineer who has progressed to Stay At Home Mom and now just recently, Homeschooler. Never in a million years would I have expected THIS! Now, my focus has progressed from career-driven to family-driven. I love to cook, and I use my engineering degree in my cooking. I love to learn how to do things, and why things work. Some of the things I've learned is: How to make yogurt, cheese, soap, and many other things that my friends taunt me about. I don't mind. I would go nuts otherwise. My husband only gets paid once a month. So, I have become a meal planner & Once A Month Cooking lover. I shop on the first of the month, and only buy needed dairy and fresh ingredients through the rest of the month. So, I look for meals that work with our plans. And, one last note: I do have a small job to get me out of the house. I am a dance instructor, and LOVE to dance (which is where my silly photo came from). So, if you were to peek in my windows (which I don't recommend by the way - he he he) you'd see me cooking and dancing. They seem to go together SO WELL!! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
