Here is  another one of my quicky meals that I make for myself on a busy day. After running around between my school, little man’s school, blog work and house work, I often realize that not much time is left for making myself something to eat. I’ve already shared a few quick recipes and here is my new favorite lunch!

I still have basil that’s growing like a weed, so I try to incorporate it in the recipes. Fresh Pesto is something I always have in the fridge. I LOVE putting pesto on sandwiches and the little guy loves it on pasta.

Rotisserie chicken is also a perfect way to add great flavor to my panini when I don’t have much time. Use lemon-pepper, mojo or original!

    Hi Lyuba! I’m always looking for new sandwich recipes as I take a lunch to work. I love pesto and this one looks delicious! I’ve never tried fontina cheese before. Pinned this and will be making it soon for my lunch!

    Dear Lyuba, Another delicious dish! I am so in the mood for chicken salad. Like you, I still have so much basil left over in the garden. Usually I take whatever is left and make a pesto and store in the freezer. I will have to try this some time…I know my daughter would love it! Blessings, Catherine xo
