Caprese Panini


 "You like tomato, I like tomahto."  Tomato...tomahto... it's all the same thing.  But it's not the same.  Slavery is not just happening overseas, it is here in our backyard.  In the US tomato fields!  It's not just a small number of tomatoes.  It is the vast majority of tomatoes sold in our supermarkets.  According to IJM (International Justice Mission), as of June 2012, there were only 2 supermarkets where you could buy slave free tomatoes, Trader Joes and Whole Foods.

IJM has started a campaign this summer called Recipe For Change.  They are collecting signatures on petitions to send to major US grocery stores, asking them to join the Fair Food Program, ensuring us that the tomatoes we buy are slave free.  You can make a stand against slavery here in our US tomato fields by following this link and signing your name on the petition.  Share this information with your family and friends.  Let's make a difference together!

Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream, 1963.

Starbucks Roasted Tomato and Mozzarella Panini, has inspired me to try making this sandwich at home.

Caprese Panini

Gluten Free Ciabatta Roll  (I use the Schar brand)
Tomato, slices
Fresh mozzarella slice
Fresh basil leaves
Fresh spinach leaves
Optional : Basil pesto (if you can safely eat pine nuts)

Assemble your sandwich and cook in a panini press if you have one.  If not, cook on your stovetop over medium low heat.

Simple.  Quick.  Easy.  Nutritious.  Fresh.  Delicious.

Thank you Nap-Time Creations, Allergy Free Wednesdays and Gluten Free Homemaker for letting me share this recipe on your blog party.

  3. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
