Avocado-Tuna Panini


I have a little boy who is standing, crawling up the stairs and babbling away…where did my baby go?! At eight months old, so much has happened so fast..it literally feels like the past eight months have gone by in the blink of an eye..it has to slow down…NOW. He is SO absolutely handsome.. I can’t get enough of this little boy..hes so smart, so funny, looks just like his daddy…he amazes me every single day..leaving him for work 13 hours at night, kills me! I love him more than he will ever know! ❤ I just wanted you all to know that 🙂

Kinda like this panini..I love it! I can’t get enough of it…its been lunch for approximately four days straight.. Seriously..it’s that good. The delicious crunchy sourdough bread, paired with the flavorful, creamy center..oh my gawd, I’m hankerin’ for one right now. I love paninis. Like, really love them. I would pretty much take anything and smash it between delicious bread and heat it up..mmmm!

You should definitely make this. Its quick, simple, and fabulous..and it tastes like you spent forever on it..pair it up with the crunchiest chips you can get your hands on..you have a five star lunch. You’re Welcome 😉
