Grilled Apple Sandwich with Spinach, Havarti & Pesto

One of the joys of working from my home office is that I have easy access to my kitchen whenever the mood strikes.  And it strikes often.

I’ve been struggling trying to learn more about this whole blog-thing and how to make things look like I want them to. {You’ll see that my “Favorite Things” section is labeled as “Coming Soon.”  In the spirit of truth-in-advertising the label SHOULD say: “I have no idea what I’m doing, but as soon as I figure out how to write CSS and HTML , we’ll get some cool stuff posted here.”}

In the midst of some technical difficulties, I figured lunch would help.

This is one of my all-time favorite sandwiches, and I’ve tried to make it healthier by loading up on the stuff that’s good for you.  (True, this would make a fabulous panini, but those are mostly bread – white bread – buttered and squished down to a manageable size).

Having just polished this off – and avoiding the temptation to go for round-two, I’m back in my office, ready for a productive afternoon!

Enjoy.
