Now the questions is, what to do with all of that bread I made? FYI - 2 loaves is WAY too much for two people. ;)

Well, I couldn't let me homemade bread go to waste, so I figured it was panini time! I know I cut a corner on this one, but I bought a pre-roasted chicken from the grocery store (what can I say, it was a long day at work . . . and a Monday). I decided on pesto, roasted tomatoes, mozzarella, and obviously roasted chicken.

The Ingredients

A couple of guys were over for a Fantasy Football draft, so my panini's were scarfed down (always a good sign). I did however manage to get one picture . . .

1. Add basil, pine nuts, and finely chopped garlic clove (or put it through garlic press) into a mixer or food processor
2. SLOWLY drizzle in olive oil until mixture becomes smooth and looks like a spread
