I’m coming to you currently from my couch, where my feet are practically being held together by bandages. Why, you ask? Because I’m stupid. More specifically, because I forgot to bring an extra pair of shoes with me to school today. Let me give you a little background here. I had to give an oral presentation for my business communications class today. To make things worse, I had to dress up like a fancy professional businesswoman. All to teach me that in the business world, you can’t wear sweatpants to work. Sorry, but if you don’t already know that pajama bottoms are not suitable business attire, no class and no professor is going to be able to help you at this point. You’re screwed. And perpetually unemployed.
Let’s get back to the point here. I ended up walking across an enormous campus ALL DAY wearing a skirt and four-inch heels, getting gross blisters and covering them up with hand lotion and lip balm because that’s all that I could find in my purse. I got chub rub in places that I did not know could rub together like that. I’m never leaving this couch again, not because I don’t want to, but because I cannot physically walk farther than the bathroom without waddling like a pregnant whale. To sum things up, I hate being a girl and I miss high school when I had to wear uniforms. I had this Prosciutto, Strawberry, and Brie Panini on the back burner to share with you. And thank God, because I don’t see myself moving any time in the foreseeable future. Thin slices of salty prosciutto, fresh strawberries, and creamy melted brie cheese are pressed between two slices of crusty ciabatta bread to make this tasty sandwich. It is the perfect blend of sweet and salty.
- 4 ounces Brie, rind removed and cut into 6 slices
- 4 large strawberries, thinly sliced
- 8 thin slices prosciutto
- 2 ciabatta rolls, split
- Preheat a Panini press. Meanwhile, layer the Brie, strawberries, and prosciutto over the bottom half of each ciabatta roll. Place the top half of the roll on top. Grill the sandwiches for about 5 minutes, until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted. Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board. Cut each sandwich in half and serve.
