Roasted Peppers Panini

Today was a pretty fantastic day as far as food goes (if you totally dismiss the half dozen chocolate caramel pretzels I gobbled down between meals). Really though, I enjoyed my food today. I had Microwave Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal for breakfast.
Then a chocolate caramel pretzel.
I had some leftover seafood stew for lunch. Then a pretzel, and another.
For snack I had some pistachios. (Every time I think of pistachios I think of the Gangham Style dance, yet I've never actually tried to dance the dance for which you should all thank me.)
Maybe another pretzel. Who's judging? You know you would if they were in your house.
For dinner I made a delicious Roasted Peppers Panini. I meant to add a salad with it but I was totally stuffed after all the pretzels the sandwich. I threw some leftover ham on the hubster's and he loved it too!



Ingredients:

3 sweet peppers (I used orange, yellow and red), sliced
1/2 onion, sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp fajita seasoning
Mozzarella cheese
Guacamole (just mash an avocado, add a little lemon and salt, maybe some garlic powder)
Ciabatta rolls

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450. Mix peppers, onions, olive oil and fajita seasoning in a baking dish. Roast for 10-15 minutes (edges should just barely be getting dark).
Layer ciabatta rolls with guacamole, cheese and pepper mix and press with panini grill. Or use a stove top grill pan and use another pan to press down on it, flip, repeat.
It's delish! I don't like a lot of sauce on my sandwiches but it would be great with a bit of chipotle mayonnaise or something if you like that sort of thing.
Add a glass of PiƱa Colada and you'll be in heaven.

Or a chocolate caramel pretzel. You know, whatever's on hand.
