Looking back, I recall a prompt to make panini. Thanks, Niece! Well here you go…two versions to recreate in ATL when I visit in two weeks (I’m counting down!!). I love fruit, and fruit sweetness, so I decided to make a pear-jack cheese-apricot spread-red onion panino. GP did not disappoint in the pear department. They have about 5 varieties right now. Or more!

And then I made an heirloom tomato-fresh mozzarella-grilled green onion panino. I’m feeling lucky!!

Two cast iron skillets worked for me as an impromptu sandwich press. Set one atop the other, gave it a good smoosh, and the weight did the rest. Enjoy!
